"New" Car Jump-Starts Career for 2010 Labor Day Recipient

"I just want to express the deepest thanks, as a family—and as a father—for what Wheels has done. The car has made a huge impact on our lives. It’s been a blessing, and we are very thankful, very grateful." – Al, Labor Day 2010 vehicle recipient

Because of the downturn in the economy, Al lost his job, along with his company car, last year.

Married with two daughters, Al was very motivated to find a way to support his family, but his job search was complicated by his lack of reliable transportation. After finding an hourly job outside of his chosen profession, he had a new challenge: getting to work. Because Al has a disability which makes it difficult for him to work long distances and he and his family do not live near a bus line, he had to rely on his neighbors, friends, and co-workers for rides.

Since receiving his "new to him" Nissan Sentra on Labor Day 2010, Al has been able to work overtime, and he has also landed a second job—in his chosen field of Merchandising. Because this position
requires him to travel between retail outlets to call on clients, this employment opportunity would not have been possible with his own "wheels." Al recently completed the Wheels program and is receiving the title to his Sentra. Congratulations, Al!
