The Original 1-800-Charity Cars, providers of free donated vehicles to people in need since 1996, operates an amazing and unique website www.freecharitycars.org, where people in need of viable transportation can sign up and apply for a free charity car. Through our program we have awarded cars to over 5000 families in need.
Today, we would like to highlight one of our Florida car donation applicants to give you a glimpse of the people in need of a reliable mode of transportation from all across the country.
Marquette, from Lauderdale Lakes, Florida, signed up through our vehicle distribution site on October 12, 2012 where he has applied for a free charity car. Here is a summary of his situation:
“I’m a disabled man who’s trying to get back in the work force. I’ve be diagnosed with COPD, and I’m doing all I can to better myself. I never smoked a day in my life, but it was second hand smoke that caused some, if not all, my problems. I refuse to let COPD, or any sickness defeat me.
I have constant doctor appointments on a regular basis, and it is a hard thing to deal with on it’s own, but with no transportation it’s even harder. It is just getting harder to get a ride to get to the doctor, go to church, or even get to the grocery store to meet my basic needs.
I’ve been on the Free Charity Cars site since 2012, and through great members, whom I will call family, speaking to me, telling me ‘you keep believing no matter what’ that I hold fast to faith. I’ll never submit to defeat no matter what!’
