Families Receive Vehicles from NADA and Area Dealers

Back in March, four local families received vehicles at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) headquarters through a partnership with Vehicles for Change (VFC) and area automotive dealerships.  WANADA would like to congratulate NADA, VFC and our members who participated in this worthwhile endeavor: Nissan of Bowie, Sport Automotive Group, and Rosenthal Automotive Group.

Sport Automotive Group in Silver Spring, Md., awarded a Toyota RAV4 to Candice McNair, a single mother of two daughters and a clerk in Annapolis, Md., who will use her vehicle to pursue her bachelor’s degree in health administration.

Nissan of Bowie in Bowie, Md., awarded a Nissan Versa to Toni Brown, a single mother of a teenage son and a medical secretary in Baltimore, Md., who will use her vehicle to alleviate the financial burden of her daily commute and access medical appointments.

Rosenthal Automotive Group based in Reston, Va., awarded a Nissan Altima to Tammy Carter, a single mother of two teenage daughters and a patient access specialist in Prince William County, Va., who will use her vehicle to decrease commuting time and transport her children to extracurricular activities.

Carter Myers Automotive Group based in Charlottesville, Va., awarded a Kia Rio to Adrianna Boyer, a single mother of two young children and a sales administrator in Loudoun County, Va., who will use her vehicle to get her son engaged in afterschool activities.

The vehicles not only offer recipients access to personal mobility, but also the opportunity to build their own credit portfolio and enhance their financial literacy. Each family will pay $950 for their vehicle, be provided a 12-month loan through Sandy Spring Bank and receive a 6-month/6,000-mile warranty.

In addition to sourcing the donated vehicles, the NADA Foundation donated $5,000 per vehicle to cover the costs associated with awarding these cars, including refurbishing the vehicles and making necessary repairs.

NADA also produced a video highlighting the endeavor which can be seen here.
