Take a STEP to mobility: six refurbished cars available to active duty or veteran military

Support The Enlisted Project is working to connect our military and veterans with refurbished cars.

Our donor has SIX additional cars to distribute to military or veteran families – (3) who live in or work in Orange County and (3) who live in or work in San Diego County – who really need a car.

Please share this information with your connections and encourage them to submit an application by the deadline: August 26, 2019, 7 a.m.

This will be vehicle number 34 – 39 that we have given away through this program, so we know it works and there are no hidden surprises. Feel free to go look at the pictures on STEP’s Facebook or contact [email protected] for more information.

As always, this will be a refurbished car and it will be titled in the recipient’s name at the time of the gifting. The donor will select the candidate from among three or more compelling stories that we forward to them. We do not know the type of vehicles yet, but in the past, they have been basic economy vehicles that are four or fewer years old, completely restored.

In order to be considered for this amazing gift, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Active Duty or Veteran
  • Does not currently own a good working vehicle
  • Be financially challenged
  • Be able to insure and maintain the vehicle
  • Have a valid driver’s license
  • Have proof of income/employment
  • Have a safe driving record
  • Live in San Diego or Orange County
  • Have a compelling story that will help them stand out to the donor.
  • Be willing to undergo a background check by the donor.

If you know of veteran or military families in San Diego or Orange County that meet the above criteria and will benefit significantly from receiving a free, completely restored late model car, then please help them submit their stories for consideration.

Please provide them with this link: stepsocal.org/car

This is a secure web form where they will be required to complete a brief application, attach proof of military affiliation and share the reason they need this car. Please let [email protected] know if you have any questions, and please share this far and wide through our military support community.

Applications received after the deadline cannot be considered.
