OKEECHOBEE — Okeechobee City Police Department donated a surplus vehicle to Martha's House on Thursday, Oct. 20.
David McCormick of Tire Zone donated tires for the vehicle.
Hank Soler and Shayne Clayville of Soler Automotive did some minor body work and touched up the paint to leave the vehicle looking almost new.
Jose Luna of Luna Window tint replaced the tint on the windows.
Jonathon Bean, executive director of Martha's House and Edna Malagon, director of programs took possession of the car.
Bean expressed gratitude and explained the vehicle will be used for errands where the van Martha's House uses now is not needed, trips involving smaller groups of people. With the price of gas going up, it will be a great help to the non-profit which serves victims of domestic violence in the Okeechobee community.
