A vehicle will be given away at the 8 a.m., 10 a.m., noon. and 6:30p.m. services on Sunday, April 28th to deserving single parents in need at First Baptist Church of Glenarden. This is the launch of Sterling Motorcars’ Community C.A.R.E. Program.
Four unsuspecting single parents will be surprised this Sunday when they are selected to receive a quality pre-owned vehicle from Sterling Motorcars at one of four services at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden (FBCG). These parents currently do not have transportation, and yet they give tirelessly of their time and talent to others. While their names cannot be disclosed, their backgrounds are as follows:
Parent One: Husband passed leaving her to raise eight children, ages 8-15
Parent Two: Was involved in an automobile accident and her car was totaled. The person who hit her didn’t have insurance. This parent volunteers with FBCG’s Special Needs Ministry and has a 15-year-old child.
Parent Three: Uses public transportation and has two children ages 7 and 9. Despite various hardships in her life, she continues to serve in the Kids World Ministry and the Children Bible Study Ministry for the last five years.
Parent Four: Volunteers their time working with the dance ministry youth ages 13-18. They have a 9-year-old son, who is also actively involved in the church.
The Sterling Motorcars’ Community C.A.R.E. Program is new, and is being launched by Chairman, Thomas A. Moorehead and new President and CEO, Paul White. The acronym stands for Commitment, Assurance, Reliability and Excellence. White, who comes from the largest selling auto dealership, AutoNation, is bringing his highly successful community outreach program to Sterling Motorcars. While most dealers pay for this type of community outreach, Sterling Motorcars is organic and coming from within the walls of their dealership. This is a huge difference, and just the first of many initiatives to the community via faith-based organizations, schools, and local organizations.
FBCG Pastor K. Jenkins Sr. states, “We are thrilled to be the first recipients of the Sterling Motorcars’ Community C.A.R.E. Program". We have identified four single parents based on their financial needs, having young children, and being active members of the First Baptist Church of Glenarden. Our recipients are faithfully involved in our ministries and are single parents who recognize that their lives are bigger than themselves. They give generously by serving outside of themselves by helping other people.”
