Our guest speaker at this month's Community Collaborative meeting was Ms. Angela Agel from AutoGift. AutoGift's mission is:
"To give single mothers with minor children, and no access to a car, the gift of a safe, reliable, debt-free automobile as a resource to be used to enhance their quality of life."
AutoGift's donated vehicles go through a rigorous certification process including a title check, emissions inspection and extensive mechanical check. Once the vehicle has completed this process, the air conditioning is then checked to make sure in working order, proper spare tire is included, the oil is changed, the gas tank is filled and the car is completely detailed to be ready for it's recipient.
Recipients are advocated for by agencies (please note single moms do not apply directly). If you know a single mother that meets the criteria (CLICK FOR CRITERIA), you can fill out the application and begin your advocacy process (CLICK FOR APPLICATION)
This year's goal was to distribute 70 cars to mothers, but unfortunately because of COVID-19, they have only been able to gift 22. In order to meet their goal, AutoGift is relaxing one requirement: usually a mother needs to have at least two children to qualify, for the next 90 days, a mother only needs one child to qualify!
