A remarkable program

November 13, 2010

This afternoon, I will head downtown for a donor appreciation gathering for those who donated cars during the past year or so. Should be fun.

A remarkable program of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, St. Louis Council. Donated autos are fixed up via “Vinnie’s Autos” and sold for$960. The recipients pay $80 per month for one year. Cars donated typically have values  several times that amount.

Our old 90 Honda Accord needed a life other than sitting in the driveway. We donated our car around Thanksgiving last year. Someone should get another five years of use. The new owner may even be at the dinner.
