CARSTAR Donates Vehicle to Veterans Employment Alliance
Sept. 30, 2015—CARSTAR Forest Home Auto donated a 2009 Dodge Caravan through the National Auto Body Council’s (NABC) Recycled Rides program, the company announced on Tuesday. The vehicle was donated to the Veterans Employment Alliance (VEA) in Milwaukee, Wis., on Sept. 13 at the Hiller Ford 6th Annual MACC Charity Fund Car Show.
The van, which was provided by Erie Insurance, was restored by the owners of CARSTAR Forest Home, Mary and Debbie Zabel. The Veterans Employment Alliance will use the van to take veterans to and from work.
“We would like to thank all of those that participated in the donation of the van to the VEA Center on behalf of Veterans & Families in Crisis,” said Ken Davis, director of the Veterans Employment Alliance. “Again, many thanks on behalf of our brothers and sisters preserving freedom in America.”
“It was meant to be,” said Debbie Zabel, owner of CARSTAR Forest Home. “It turned out to be such a tremendous blessing for the recipients. There were thousands of people there. They allowed us to use the PA system, so the van was given away in front of everyone”
