St. John’s, Newfoundland — The fine people at Collision Clinic in St. John’s, N.L. are yet again giving the gift of mobility this holiday season, surprising Faith Ann Vokey and her son, Ashton, with a newly refurbished 2018 Kia Rio.
Vokey works evenings at a downtown St. John’s hotel, has to rely on taxis for transportation, and frequently finds herself waiting for up to an hour for a cab with a car seat. She is looking forward to starting school next year, and this gift is sure to help drive her and Ashton to success.
The keys changed hands on Wednesday, along with a Christmas-themed gift bag and free insurance for a year.
This marks the 18th year running that Sharon Wells and her team at Collision Clinic have given away a vehicle to a family in their community as part of the “Enriching Lives Car Giveaway Program.”
“Christmas really begins for us building up to this day,” said Wells, general manager at Collision Clinic.
“It is such a rewarding day for all of us and we look forward to it every year.”
