2021 marks the eleventh year, Amarillo, TX-based Aardvark Automotive will provide a used, donated vehicle to a deserving local resident through the Wheels to Prosper Program. The Wheels to Prosper car-giveaway initiative was launched in 2011, and Brandon Anderson, owner of Aardvark Automotive is proud that his auto repair shop has participated in the giveaway every year.
“We’ve been fortunate to receive a donated vehicle for ten years and counting, which we then tune up or repair if necessary, and award to a deserving member of our community. Today we are issuing our annual call for a donation of a used car or SUV, so that we can help another deserving neighbor again this year,” Anderson said.
Aardvark Automotive is seeking a gently used, 4-door vehicle with no more than 120,000 miles. The vehicle will then undergo a complete safety inspection, and Aardvark Automotive will perform necessary safety repairs. “We are most interested in donations of reliable vehicles. We aim to provide a deserving individual with a vehicle that will get them to work, or to school safely and reliably, so that they can work towards their life goals,” Anderson explained.
The Wheels to Prosper program provides a fully serviced car or SUV, in good working order to a deserving Amarillo resident in need of safe, reliable transportation. “We’ve been honored by the continuing support from the local community, which has ensured that we have a vehicle to donate each year. We are confident that our community will support the initiative again this year. If you’re not sure whether a car you have would be accepted, we hope you’ll give us a call. We’d be happy to make sure the vehicle doesn’t have significant engine or transmission problems and can be donated to this year’s winners.”
Continuing Anderson said, “We encourage everyone who has a vehicle they are no longer using, to consider donating to the Wheels to Prosper Program. This donation can make all the difference in the world to someone who is working hard to get ahead in life but needs a little help. We’ve awarded vehicles to single parents, those working two jobs, and individuals pursuing higher education, in previous years,” he added. Past recipients of Aardvark Automotive’s Wheels to Prosper vehicles can be found on the Wheels to Prosper website.
Aardvark Automotive‘s 11th recipient of the Wheels to Prosper will be announced in the fall of 2021. Nominations for deserving individuals can be sent to Aardvark Automotive online.
