Low-Income Montgomery County Family Receives Christmas Wish

Low-Income Montgomery County Family Receives Christmas Wish

 

Just in time for Christmas,  single low-income mother of two, Shanita Godfrey, was awarded a 2001 Toyota Camry by Vehicles For Change; a Maryland nonprofit who refurbishes donated cars and awards them to qualified low-income families at affordable prices.

“It means a lot. My kid’s love going different places but it just takes too much time and they are always exhausted by the time we get there. Now we can actually enjoy going out together. This is the best Christmas ever,” explained Shanita Godfrey.

Godfrey had a five-hour round-trip commute a day to her Gaithersburg job and children’s day care via public transportation. Now with her new car, her commute is cut in half.
