Wheels of Success’ Vehicles for Veterans Program Brings Hope to Navy Vet with Help from STCOC!

The South Tampa Chamber of Commerce and the Committee for the 19th Annual Fall Golf Classic presented by Caldeco and ZapCap selected Fulfill Your Destiny as their beneficiary charity.

STCOC

The first recipient, Rebecca O. received hers on Veteran’s Day when four Community Partners joined forces and presented a Car to a Local U.S. Navy Veteran through the Wheels of Success’ Vehicles for Veterans Program. Wheels of Success teamed up with DAV Charitable Services Trust, Powerstories Theatre, and Fulfill Your Destiny to honor Rebecca O.

Rebecca O. is single mother of two young boys and a U.S. Navy veteran.  After moving to the Tampa Bay area to escape an abusive relationship, Rebecca O. found full-time employment with Walt Disney, as she describes “a happy place to work”.  Though Rebecca O. could take the bus to work, her late hours left her stranded with no way to return home.  The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay referred her to Wheels of Success in hopes of finding a transportation solution because being able get to and from work – at any hour – is vital to keeping working families on the road to success.

Karen Mertes’ Story of Triumph Shared by MADD

Every day in America, another 29 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes. That’s one person every 50 minutes. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) picked up Karen Mertes’ story of triumph late last year and shared it with the world.

karen Mertes Author

Here is an excerpt from the MADD write-up on Karen Mertes:
“In every situation we have a choice, to stay a victim or become victorious despite all odds. I chose to be better, not bitter.” The driver that made the choice to drink and drive and injured Karen, continued to make choices that harmed him. Before the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) results came back, he fled the state. The news was heart breaking. As she continued to face new challenges head-on and find ways to embrace her TBI, the person that caused so much pain and suffering chose to flee his problems and not be accountable for his actions.”
