$2,400 in Donated Repairs Allows Mother to Get Back on the Road

HORSHAM, Pa., June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AAMCO, the world's largest chain of transmission specialists and leader in total car care, is pleased to share a story of generosity from one of its Florida center owners.

Cassandra Brownlee is a mother of two sons, ages nine and 14, who both have special needs and require regular medical attention. She is client of Daniel Kids, which provides therapeutic assistance for one of her sons. When Brownlee's transmission was slipping on her 2003 Ford Explorer, she knew she needed urgent repair work. Brownlee brought her car to AAMCO Jacksonville at 103rd Street with roughly $200 in borrowed cash and could not afford the repairs. Fortunately, Brownlee noticed a sign on the wall for the We Care Repair program, a partnership between AAMCO and Daniel Kids to repair automobiles for those in financial need, which relies on community donations. She immediately applied for the program.

When AAMCO Jacksonville center owner Jason Butler spoke with Brownlee about the cost of the repairs, he took the borrowed money and dropped it in the Daniel Kids donation box. Butler then provided the rest of the repairs, at a cost of $2,400 at no expense to Brownlee. Repairs included a new transmission rear seal, transmission service with synthetic fluid, new valve cover gaskets, oil pan gaskets and a differential reseal.

Brownlee was touched by the gesture. She burst into tears when Butler placed the money into the donation box.

"AAMCO did not just help fix my car," says Brownlee. "I have two special needs children, so fixing the car is like keeping the house running; it lets me get to doctor appointments without interruption. Words cannot express how much AAMCO helped us, and we thank them again."

"I am proud of Jason's initiative to give back to a loyal customer at a time when financial assistance was very much needed," said Brett Ponton, AAMCO President and CEO.  "AAMCO supports providing additional assistance where we can, whether it's donated fees or time, so that customers can get back on the road safely and worry free."
