Skip Davenport will present the keys to a refurbished car to Carlos Cabrera.

The presentation, April 27 at 10 a.m., is a part of D&D Ford’s partnership with Recycled Rides and Greer Relief and Resources Agency. Recycled Rides is a nation wide community service project where members of the National Auto Body Council repair and donate recycled vehicles to families and service organizations in need, in their communities.

"In suburban areas, having a car is an essential part of your daily life,” said Skip Davenport, owner of D&D Ford.

“The need is even more present when you depend on your car to get you to medical appointments on a regular basis,” said Davenport. “At D&D Ford, we really try to positively impact members of our community, so we couldn't be more excited for Carlos.”

Cabrera is a member of the community who has struggled with a chronic medical condition that resulted in him being on Social Security Disability for 10 years. His automobile is 20 years old and undependable

With his new car, Cabrera will be able to attend his frequent medical appointments as well as pick up his children from school.

D&D Ford partnered with Greer Relief in identifying Cabrera as the recipient of the vehicle.
