Grapes n Grease

A car for a deserving Alaskan in the Valley for just $1.00. There is no catch. Edmonds Import Auto, an auto repair shop in Palmer, wants to make a difference in someone's life. On April 25th, 2017, Edmonds Import Auto started accepting nominations for people in the Wasilla-Palmer-Sutton-Big Lake area that are deserving and have a transportation need. They, or someone wishing to nominate them, will be asked to write a letter explaining why someone they know deserves the opportunity to buy a refurbished 2007 Kia Rondo for $1.00!

The people at Edmonds Import Auto, with support from NAPA, The Santerre Insurance Agency, Car Deets, and Ohana Media Group, are trying to bring change by making a difference in any way they can. All these groups believe that small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can change the world. The ideal person is someone not thinking of themselves by instead always looks out for others.

The Wheels to Proper program is nationwide and was started in 2009 by a close, personal friend of the owners at Edmonds Import Auto. The technicians at Edmonds Import Auto have inspected and reconditioned a 2007 Kia Rondo with parts donated by your local NAPA stores. The car will be offered with a maintenance package for one year and a limited one year warranty from Edmonds Import Auto. Car Deets has provided detailing services to make sure the new owner will enjoy a clean, fresh vehicle. Ohana Media Group and The Santerre Insurance Agency have partnered together to help raise money for insurance for the new owner. All of these groups have come together to prove that "small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can change the world."

All the nominations will be reviewed and a deserving person will be selected by a panel of volunteers to be the new owner of the Kia for $1.00.
