Vehicles will go to survivors in shelter and out-of-shelter
FAYETTEVILLE— A 1999 Crown Victoria was donated to Peace at Home Family Shelter by former State Rep. Lindsley Smith. This vehicle was repaired by Kent Atkins and his team at the Greased Pig in Fayetteville and presented to the shelter for transportation of clients to appointments, job interviews, and other important tasks.
The program has allowed many domestic violence survivors since this program began the opportunity to gain necessary transportation to become self-sufficient and create a new, peaceful life for themselves and their children.
“Having a vehicle is going to mean that she is able to move about safely with her children and build a future that is violence free,” said Maria Thompson-McSperitt, Transitional Services Coordinator for Peace at Home. “It means so much to have people like the Hussle family and Mrs. Smith looking out for those in need.”
Both Kent Atkins and his team of technicians from the Greased Pig and Murphy Pair and the service technicians at J & B Auto have been supporters of the Bumper to Bumper, Peace at Home, and Charity Cars partnership since its inception in 2007. They have also volunteered several hours of time and donated many repairs for the shelter vehicles over the years and have always done so very graciously and generously. They do this with the support of the great team from the Parts Store that provides them with the parts that they need to do the repairs at no cost to the shop.
