ALL THE GOOD NEWS THAT’S FIT TO PRINT - 10 PUBLICATIONS - OVER 350,000 READERS PER MONTH! - CHAMPION OF NON-PROFITS

    Local philanthropist will make a donation for a car

    As part of the Bucks County Opportunity Council’s Wheelz2Work program, Gene Eptstein of the Gene and Marlene Epstein Humanitarian Fund will make a $1,000 donation to the first 10 people who donate a car to BCOC’s Wheelz2Work program between now and the end of the year 2019.

    Since the program started years ago, over 450 families’ lives were changed for the better.

    At BCOC, they have received over 50 donated cars for this program and turned them over to help their clients on the road to economic self-sufficiency. 

    In some cases, the car has made the difference between getting a new job or not.

    “I think if you have an old car, you should really consider this opportunity,” explains Gene, who has been advising this program for many years, particularly when it was run out of Bucks County Community College. “Donating a car like this will change a life, we have already changed countless lives in Bucks County with BCOC and we would like to do 10 more before the end of 2019. Remember that our program is one of only a handful in the USA where you get a full retail value donation based on book value of your car, since it goes to the recipient, plus you get a bonus donation made in your name to your favorite charity. It’s a win, win.”

    All cars are evaluated by mechanics who have partnered with BCOC on this project before being accepted as a donation to the Opportunity Council.
