Wheelz2Wor­k pro­gram re­ceives 50th car

The Morning Call - - BUSINESS CYCLE -

The Bucks County Opportunit­y Coun­cil re­cently ac­cepted the 50th ve­hi­cle into its Wheelz2Wor­k pro­gram. Since 2015, the Opportunit­y Coun­cil has op­er­ated the Wheelz2Wor­k Pro­gram tak­ing do­nated used ve­hi­cles, then giv­ing them to clients in its Eco­nomic Self-Suf­fi­ciency Pro­gram.

Wheelz2Wor­k is a part­ner­ship of BCOC, Bucks County Com­mu­nity Col­lege, and the Gene and Mar­lene Ep­stein Hu­man­i­tar­ian Fund. Fund­ing for the pro­gram has also been pro­vided by Univest Bank and Trust Co., Al Brown, the Doylestown Ro­tary Club, and Foun­da­tions Com­mu­nity Part­ner­ship. BBack Car Care in Doylestown part­ners with BCOC to pro­vide free eval­u­a­tions and rec­om­men­da­tions to BCOC; Joe Davis Au­toSport in Perkasie has do­nated six cars over the last few years bought from cus­tomers and re­paired for BCOC clients.

There is still a grow­ing need for do­nated used cars to the Wheelz pro­gram. Cars are given to clients based on the availabili­ty of do­nated ve­hi­cles, and re­cip­i­ents must have re­sources and in­surance to take own­er­ship of a car. Donors may claim a tax de­duc­tion for their do­na­tion, as a value greater than a trade-in.
