Service King's Memphis teammates, in conjunction with State Farm, helped to make the holiday season bright for a local domestic violence survivor with the gift of a fully restored 2007 Chevrolet Impala. The emotional presentation took place on Dec. 14 at Service King’s local Memphis repair center as technicians who volunteered time, labor and weekends handed over the keys to the restored vehicle to Gladys Mulkey and her children.
“The Service King family is honored to come together in support of Gladys and hand over the keys to her family this holiday season,” said Patrick Matthews, Service King Market Director. “The gift of reliable, personal transportation has the power to transform lives. It’s our sincere hope this gift provides just that.”
With the car, Gladys will be able to take one step further in her and her family’s effort to start a new life after fleeing from an abusive relationship. The new vehicle owner will also have the opportunity to look for a better job and transport her children to after-school activities, doctors’ appointments and more.
The NABC Recycled Rides program brings together collision repairers, insurance companies, local businesses and non-profit organizations to restore and donate vehicles for deserving individuals and families in need. Service King is a longtime partner in the initiative. Thursday’s giveaway is just one of several vehicles the company has given away this year to families across the country.
