Faulkner Collision Center Donates Vehicle
Oct. 14, 2019—Last week, Faulkner Collision Center of Lancaster presented a car to a deserving veteran. The presentation was held at Faulkner Collision Center in Lancaster, Penn.
The collision repair shop, along with State Farm and the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides' program, presented a car to a veteran to provide him independence, the ability to work and take care of his family.
Faulkner Collision Center of Lancaster and State Farm presented a 2017 blue Chevrolet Cruze to deserving U.S. Army veteran Matt Weber, who served 15 years and did two tours to Iraq, Jan. 2003-April 2004 and May 2009-Sept. 2010. He served as an 88M Motor Transport Operator.
After leaving the service, Matt got married and relocated, which meant he lost his job and housing. He heard about TLC/Veterans' Victory House through veteran connections and he worked with his Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) case manager on his goals of increasing income, finding housing and saving for a car. He started off at a temp agency and then got hired full time, thus completing one of his goals of increasing income. He found permanent housing with the help of his SSVF case manager's assistance.
He had been relying on public transportation, rideshares and friends to get to and from work.
