Thank you Anne and Ashlee!

Here are some photos of Anne Arnold-Ratliff and her travel companion, Ashlee, volunteering here at Good News Garage VT. They spent most of the day washing donated cars and vans. They also stapled information pads to the front of posters, which they will be putting up on their way back to Georgia.

Anne is on a forty-eight state journey, volunteering in each of the states. She choose Good News Garage as her nonprofit for Vermont.

Watch the WCAX News coverage of her visit.

Good News Garage NH LOVES Volunteers!

Good News Garage New Hampshire loves our wonderful volunteers and the assistance they provide. Here are a few of our recent volunteers and how they are sharing their diverse skills and interests to benefit Good News Garage's car donation program:

Annie, a retired businesswoman, loves to scrapbook. Over the last year, she has created two wonderful Good News Garage NH scrapbooks which feature our car recipients and donated cars. Annie is now preparing an Impala Car Opportunity scrapbook which will highlight the ten 2008 cars donated by Rick Hendrick and Hendrick Motorsports last May when Good News Garage and our car donation program was featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Matt, an MBA student, is interested in providing marketing assistance for our program. He will be helping me with numerous marketing projects to enhance and improve our marketing efforts and strategies.

Brittany (pictured above) is currently enrolled in interior design school. She is interested in helping Good News Garage NH spruce up our outdated offices. Brittany recently finished painting and decorating a bathrooom and next week she plans to paint a banner to help advertise the Good News Garage NH Car Donation Day event which is happening on April 15, 2010.

Annie, Matt and Brittany are just a few of the many folks who help fuel our Good News Garage NH car donation program. Interested in sharing your skills with an inspirational organization? Contact me, Susan, at or 603-669-6937 to explore our current volunteer opportunities.
