WHAT IS DESERVING RIDES?
Deserving Rides is a program that we started in 2015 where we find used cars with a lot of miles left in them, fix them up, make them safe and turn them into reliable transportation. Then we give it away to someone so they can get on with their life.
HOW DOES “DESERVING RIDES” WORKS?
Throughout the year, people can nominate someone who lives in the St. Charles / Fox Valley Area who could really use a reliable car by filling out the form on this page. At the same time, we look for cars that we will use in the Deserving Rides program, bring them in and fix them up. Then, we gather leaders from the St. Charles community to choose the person who would benefit from the car and give it away. Yes, just give it away.
But more than just giving away a car, we also help the recipient with car repairs and maintenance to make sure that the car will serve them well.
