 Applications Being Accepted for Car Giveaway


A deserving City of Palm Desert family in need will have a life changing opportunity to be gifted a car thanks to the generosity of a local auto body shop.


Ben Clymer’s The Body Shop has partnered with Martin Auto Color Service, Auto Club of Southern California, and Community Connect to provide one deserving family the gift of a car. The gift will come complete with one year of insurance, a trunk full of groceries and possibly car seats.

To be eligible for the car giveaway the recipient must be a resident within the city limits of Palm Desert, eligible to be insured, must have a valid driver’s license with a clean DMV record and most of all be truly in need of a car.

Community Connect will be collecting the applications and making a recommendation for the recipient selection to Ben Clymer. The staff at Ben Clymer’s will make the final selection based on the applicant that most demonstrates the need and life change that a car would bring to their family. Applications can be submitted by potential recipients, a friend or family member, or by an agency. Applications must be received by no later than Feb 5,2018.

The car will be given in a presentation set for Feb 15 at 11:00 AM at Ben Clymer’s The Body Shop located at 73760 Spyder Circle Palm Desert, CA. The public is invited to attend the ceremony and share in the spirit of giving.
