Convoy Auto Repair, in partnership with the San Diego NAPA Business Development Group (BDG) and Homefront San Diego, worked together to donate a refurbished Ford Explorer to a military family in need last week.
Homefront San Diego is made up entirely of volunteers, and offers assistance in emergency situations for military families who may need a little help in meeting thier needs. One of the biggest challenges military families face is unexpected expenses from vehicle breakdowns.
“Roughly 42.4% of all of our expenditures are used to repair unexpected auto breakdowns,” said Mary Ann Tanner, a volunteer for Homefront. “Having local auto repair shops on our side to get costly repairs taken care of will make a huge impact on our families.”
Other contributors to this donation were NAPA Auto Parts, and Carrera Auto Body.
Gary Anderberg of NAPA said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to provide this gift to the families who are dedicated to protecting us and our families. We are working hard to see what other new ways the NAPA San Diego BDG can involve themselves in fulfilling Homefront’s mission.”
Convoy Auto Repair worked together with several other auto repair shops in the San Diego NAPA BDG to repair and refurbish the 2000 Ford Explorer, which was donated on October 11th.
