Valley Motor Center, in Van Nuys, CA, Hosts Another Successful Vehicle Donation

Valley Motor Center has proudly held another successful charity event. As part of giving something back to the communities the business serves, Valley Motor Center completely refurbished a 2006 Toyota Sienna minivan, and on November 21, 2011, donated it to New Horizons, a local organization dedicated to helping adults with developmental disabilities reach their potential and fulfill their dreams. Attending this year’s event were representatives of insurance companies, vendors, parts and paint suppliers, car rental companies and community leaders.

On hand to help kick off Valley Motor Center’s charitable donation were Assemblyman Bob Blumenfield, Detective Bill Bustos - Valley Division LAPD, and Jason Levin of Senator Fran Pavley’s office,  who all spoke, as well as Marsh Gluchow, owner of Valley Motor Center, Sue Weitkamp, Board Member & Past President of New Horizons, and Matt Williams, Material Damage C.A.R.S. Manager of Mercury Insurance.

Valley Motor Center was honored to have Malissa Moreno sing, and Adam Sher and Lisa Bronet speak, all clients of New Horizons.  Guests enjoyed food, photos, and of course the vehicle donation.

Valley Motor Center has always believed in giving back and getting involved in the communities they serve. The company feels that today, during this economic downturn which has affected everyone, they’re so fortunate to be able to do a little extra by fully refurbishing a vehicle previously owned by Mercury Insurance, and donating it to such a worthy organization.

“Our goal is to help as many people in our local community as possible by donating a vehicle to New Horizons, an organization that operates right here in the communities we serve.” states Marsh Gluchow, owner of Valley Motor Center. “It is truly our privilege to be a part of this wonderful cause.”

“We are excited about participating in Recycled Rides,” states Holly Rasey, VP for development & Marketing for New Horizons. “Valley Motor Center has a long history of helping those in need in their community, and we’re proud that they chose us to be a recipient of this vehicle. We’ll work diligently to make sure the van they are donating to us is put to its very best use, and allows us to help as many people as we can.”

Valley Motor Center has provided expert auto collision repair since 1944, and through all those years of experience, has earned the highest levels of integrity, quality repairs, customer care, reliability and safety.

Every one of the employees at Valley Motor Center has such a strong commitment to their customers that “You Will Be Satisfied” is engraved in stone in their Customer Care Center.
