Today, we’re taking a look at a 2005 Toyota Camry car donation with a special story. The proceeds from the sale of the Camry will help build a home for a family in the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity community.
I am donating my beloved car to Habitat because Habitat people painted the outside of my house. I only just now had to repaint the window sills. . . when the economy crashed [years ago], I applied for help with my bathroom and in order to get help I had to apply to Habitat. When the crew leader came to assess I said I didn’t want to use resources, better that someone else get help. But the crew leader disagreed. She looked at my garden and boulevard and said that since I give beauty to the neighborhood, Powderhorn Park, she wanted Habitat to give beauty to me.
I loved my car because my mom loved to go for road trips as her Alzheimer’s deepened. . . she loved to look for turkeys along the river in the Lilydale Regional Park. I’d drive her to the bench at the river by the High Bridge dog park. The car sits in my [driveway] and all year it reminded me of how much my mom is still a vibrant, funny, adaptive, adventurous, loving mother. I had wanted my car to go to some family that could fix it, but I just can’t deal with that during the pandemic and when someone suggested I donate it, I realized it’s a way to thank Habitat.
