She found it has been challenging to use public transportation to take her son to therapy sessions and doctors’ appointments.
When Potter-Twiford found out she was receiving a vehicle, she said she was in disbelief.
“I love my son so much and want the best for him,” said Potter-Twiford. “With this vehicle, a blessing was truly given to me and I can get my son back into his therapy and school when he is ready. I can’t begin to describe the gratitude I feel and how thankful I am for this opportunity. I’ve been struggling for a few years and this is going to open so many doors.”
The third recipient, Lozano, received a 2018 Honda Civic Sport donated by GEICO and repaired by Hamblins Body, Paint, & Frameshop.
Lozano is the mother of 13 and said her children are her life. She dropped out of school at age 14 but was determined to return and earned her General Educational Development (GED) to motivate her children to become their greatest selves.
Transportation has played a major role impacting her family to be successful and there have been times that it has affected her children’s school attendance. Lozano expressed her deep appreciation and said that having a reliable vehicle will make it easier for her to transport her children to school, activities and stay on a positive path forward.
“I want thank everyone who had a hand in making this possible,” she said. “My children and I are forever thankful and grateful for this opportunity given to us.”
