Carolyn Fugate, a Rockland County (NY) resident and Disabled Army Veteran, received a donated car courtesy of Four Star Auto (Tallman) and VFW Post 9215.

Guy Gebbia of VFW Post 9215 (Upper Nyack) works with David Davidowiz of Four Star Auto to take donated cars and make them viable options for veterans in need. Four Star screens potential vehicles, donates their labor, and repairs the vehicle. The VFW pays for parts needed for repairs.

Carolyn served in the Army from 1983-1984 and received a medical discharge due to her injuries which greatly impacted her life. Years later after learning about a program that helps other veterans, Carolyn stepped up and became a peer mentor with the PFC Dwyer program. She was an eager volunteer and connected and helped many other veterans. When offered a position as an outreach coordinator, she was willing to expand her responsibilities and accepted the challenge. But Carolyn had a limitation: she had a 30 year old vehicle in need of repair and her ability to assist others was hampered due to her failing vehicle.

But now, thanks to the donation from the VFW post she will have the reliable vehicle she needs to go to work and help other veterans. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸
