Good News Garage Dollar Bill

I just returned from a week's vacation in Destin, Florida and ate dinner one evening at McGuire's Irish Pub. We had a great meal on the deck and I posted a Good News Garage dollar bill on the wall. If you happen to visit Destin, Florida, and eat at McGuire's, see if you can locate our Donate a Car...Change a Life dollar bill!

Your car donation is making a difference!

Every week we see moms, like Stephania from Rutland, come in to Good News Garage to pick up a car, truck or van. I wish everyone who donates could be here when the recipients pick up the car. These vehicles are badly needed by working low-income Vermont families.
