First IAM 4 INDY Recipient!
WE COULD NOT THINK OF A BETTER WAY TO GIVE BACK TO THIS COMMUNITY THAN BY HELPING INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES WHO ARE WORKING HARD TO SUPPORT THEMSELVES. MR. CARLTON EXEMPLIFIES WHAT IT MEANS TO OVERCOME ADVERSITY AND INJURY. IT HAS OFTEN BEEN SAID THAT THE MEASURE OF ONE'S SPIRIT ISN'T BY COUNTING HOW MANY TIMES YOU HAVE BEEN KNOCKED DOWN, BUT BY THE NUMBER OF TIMES YOU GET BACK UP. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT MR CARLTON HAS DONE. AFTER AN INDUSTRIAL ACCIDENT IN 2014 THAT RESULTED IN A SERIOUS INJURY, MR. CARLTON FOUND THE STRENGTH TO GET BACK UP, FIND WORK AND REBUILD HIS LIFE. WE AT INDY AUTO MAN ARE INSPIRED BY YOUR COURAGE MR CARLTON AND WE WANT TO SHOW YOU THAT INDIANAPOLIS IS A COMMUNITY THAT CARES FOR ITS OWN BY PRESENTING YOU WITH THIS REFURBISHED CAR SO THAT YOU CAN CONTINUE TO SUPPORT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY. WE ARE INSPIRED BY YOUR EXAMPLE AND WE ARE FORTUNATE TO HAVE PEOPLE WITH YOUR KIND OF DETERMINATION LIVING AND WORKING IN OUR COMMUNITY. ON BEHALF OF EVERYONE AT INDY AUTO MAN AND MAACO, WE WISH YOU CONTINUED SUCCESS!
Second IAM 4 INDY Recipient!
Indy Auto Man is pleased to announce that our company with the support of its employees and our partners have delivered another IAM 4 INDY car to a deserving Indianapolis resident! During this important time of the year, we were honored to meet Mrs. Allean Porter, our IAM 4 INDY recipient, and to learn of her personal journey. Mrs. Porter, although retired, works hard taking care of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She also is the primary caregiver for a relative who suffers from a chronic health condition.
Mrs. Porter is 100% dependent on others for any and all transportation. Because she had no vehicle, it made it very difficult to go to the store, the pharmacy, medical appointments, and to provide those important needs for the people who are dependent on her. In spite of her own adversity, Mrs. Porter's number one reason for wanting to own a car was so that she "could volunteer to feed the hungry and be able to get a part time job" to help support herself and her family.
Mrs. Porter epitomizes what it means to "pay it forward" and provides her labor of love with joy in heart. Mrs. Porter exemplifies what it means to be a good citizen in Indianapolis and because of her unselfish service to others and her good citizenship Indy Auto Man is proud to call her our friend and to present her with a FREE automobile to continue her good works!
Third IAM 4 INDY Recipient!
Indy Auto Man delivered its third IAM 4 INDY car on Wednesday March 8, 2017. Employees and contractors from Indy Auto man joined together for the delivery of this refurbished vehicle to Ms. Shameka P. and her 3 children. Shameka has worked hard to provide a safe, loving home for her children and other kids in the neighborhood. Shameka has not had a car for quite some which makes it difficult for her to find permanent work and support her family. Now that she has her own car, Shameka is planning on furthering her education so she can begin a career in nursing. Shameka encourages her children by emphasizing education, sports, and community involvement.
Indy Auto Man and its partners and contractors, including Maaco Collision Repair, provide refurbished, reliable vehicles through its IAM 4 INDY program. Eligible central Indiana residents who exemplify excellent community standards are chosen via a program listed on our website. Indy Auto Man believes that a free reliable vehicle can be the perfect tool to help good people maximize their potential and pay it forward in our community. Congratulations Shameka!
