Cedar Lake receives minivan through the National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides® Program
LOUISVILLE, KY (January 12, 2023) – Locally-owned and operated Glaser’s Collision Centers and GEICO Insurance teamed up through National Auto Body Council Recycled Rides® program to donate a 2015 Chrysler Town and Country Minivan to Cedar Lake Foundation to help with additional transportation options for the adults they serve.
Glaser’s Collision Centers and GEICO have a history of donating vehicles to those in need and this time they wanted to donate to Cedar Lake. There is a special connection for Susan Glaser because her cousin benefits from the fantastic services provided by Cedar Lake.
For over 50 years, Cedar Lake has enriched the lives and fostered personal growth for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Services include housing and job placement but also transporting adults to doctor and hair appointments, activities such as bowling, basketball games, eating out at local restaurants. Adding the minivan to their fleet of vehicles allows more options for transportation to places for the adults to connect with the community.
“We are very focused on keeping our adults active, and having an additional vehicle gives more of an opportunity to take them places,” said Kathey Sanders, Executive Director, Cedar Lake Foundation.
The minivan was donated by GEICO and refurbished by Glaser’s Collision Centers through the NABC Recycled Rides® program. Additionally, Enterprise Rent-a-Car helped make the day special by presenting a donation to help with car expenses and 1.800 Charity Cars handled the titling.
“It’s a special day when you can help an organization that provides support to so many individuals and families,” stated Aaron Glaser, COO of Glaser’s Collision Centers. “We know Cedar Lake will put the minivan to good use!”
