A local Patchogue, NY, woman was gifted a vehicle at the Village of Patchogue Fire Department.
Nilza Rodriguez was introduced to NABC’s Recycled Rides program, hosted by The Collision Centers, by the Economic Opportunity Council of Suffolk County. Rodriguez is a single mother of three and has been working with EOC to help ease the burden of being a single-income family.
According to Anna Maddux of EOC, “Nilza is a bright and articulate woman… a car would be one less thing to worry about as she manages to pay bills and feed her children.”
Facing one battle and challenge after another, Rodriguez has been able to conquer many hardships and continue her goal to better her situation. Previously, Rodriguez walked to and from work, as well as walked to pick up her children each day. Now, after receiving her 2013 Dodge Dart, she can complete her day-to-day tasks much more easily.
