Through its Wheels with Heart program, Dickerson Automotive was able to help a Utah County family by providing them with additional transportation in the form of a reconditioned used car.
“This family is definitely a two car family that has been getting by with one car for some time. It was such a treat to give someone a hand up. This family is very deserving,” said Todd Dickerson, owner of Dickerson Automotive.
Dickerson started the Wheels with Heart Program to help those in the community who are needing a hand up.
“Over the years we have seen many instances where good people, through no fault of their own, end up in a situation where they are one car breakdown away from losing their job. Or the mother of the family gets up early to take her husband to work so that she can take care of the other family needs, like getting the kids back and forth from school. In many instances, having reliable transportation is all that is needed for many families to get back on their feet and or give them a better quality of life,” Dickerson said.
Dickerson is a lifelong resident of Spanish Fork that deeply cares about this community and proud to call it home.
“All of us here at Dickerson Automotive are very grateful for the support we have received from the people that live and work in the South Utah County area. This is our way of giving back to a community that we truly love.”
Dickerson Automotive would like to thank Jada Bunnell for donating the 2002 Honda Accord, and their employee, Jeff Redick, for donating many hours completing the various repairs needed, including replacement of the engine and transmission.
