"On top of this, we have many local insurance agents donating presents to put in the car and be a part of our event. This program gives all of us at Mike’s Auto Body a sense of great pride, and that's why we are so grateful for the partnerships we have."
Looking back on the Benevolence car and what followed, TeJae is moving forward and looking toward better days.
"Yes, it has been a tough journey, but we are proud of ourselves and so thankful for the car," she said. "Not everyone gets a vehicle from Mike's Auto Body, and this experience has been incredible. Asad came through the treatment and I am graduating from Cal, and none of this would have happened without the Benevolence program at Mike's Auto Body. I would like to thank former recipient and Cal student Tito Ramos for recommending me for the car, and of course I would also like to thank everyone at Mike's for helping us in so many ways!"
