Henrico non-profit repairs cars for those in need

One unique Central Virginia non-profit is helping people get their cars repaired and back on the road, for not even a dime out of their pockets.

The organization’s employees and volunteers work out of the backyard of New Life Baptist Church in Henrico.

Mechanics of Faith has helped a little over 70 people this year so far, either by donating a car to them or making hundreds of dollars of repairs on their car, for free. One of those people, Erik Bennett, said his car wasn’t running as well as it is now a few months back, until now.

“I’m a single dad and I’m on a fixed income and I had some car repairs that need to be done and I reached out all over and I couldn’t get anybody to help me,” he explained.

That’s where Mechanics of Faith stepped in, performing what could’ve been hundreds of dollars of repairs, and charging not even one penny.

“Now I can, you know, get my daughter to softball practice, get to doctors’ appointments,” Bennett smiled.

I don't know about you, but I needed some good news to start my day.
