SINCE OFFICIALLY LAUNCHING IN FEBRUARY 2020 WE HAVE HELPED 10 PEOPLE/FAMILIES THROUGH OUR PROGRAM!!!!
"WHAT AN AMAZING SHOP! FROM THE SECOND I WALKED THROUGH THE DOOR I FELT WELCOMED AND IN GOOD HANDS FOR ALL MY VEHICLE NEEDS. I HAD A CONCERN KNOWING MY BREAKS WERE IN NEED OF REPLACEMENT TO BE UP TO A SAFE DRIVING STATUS. I WAS EXTREMELY STRESSING WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT I ALSO NEEDED SOME OTHER MORE EXPENSIVE PARTS REPAIRED. ONE DAY I SAW A FACEBOOK POST FROM A FRIEND THAT THERE WAS A LOCAL GARAGE SHOP THAT HAD A PROGRAM FOR PEOPLE JUST LIKE ME! I AM SOMEONE WHO HAS A LOWER LIMITED INCOME DESPITE WORKING ALL THE TIME. I FILLED OUT AN APPLICATION AND WAS ASKED SOME QUESTIONS, AND I WAITED FOR APPROVAL. I FELT SO RELIEVED WHEN I HEARD THAT I HAD BEEN APPROVED FOR THE PROGRAM AT 25% COST DUE FROM ME. i PAID MY BILL AND WENT ON MY WAY KNOWING MY VEHICLE WAS SAFE TO DRIVE FOR ME AND MY KIDS. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO NATE'S GARAGE AND THEIR PROGRAM FOR HELPING SO MANY!
"Hello my name is Chelsi. I recently received help getting my vehicle fixed from Nate's Community Garage program here in cannon falls with the help of the community. I can not begin to express how thankful and grateful myself and my 2 children are to be blessed in able to get the opportunity to receive this help. My total bill was more than i could afford and i only paid 25% out of pocket. I am currently unemployed due to covid-19 and have been unable to get unemployment, so money has been very tight. I will never be able to thank everyone in person or be able to thank everyone enough for the help of the community and all the amazing people at Nate's garage that put up with me and my pain in the butt car. Thank you Nate and Ali for accepting my application and taking the time out of your busy days to run a program like this!! Also please tell all the guys (and girls if there are any) thank you so much for fixing big girl for me and my children!!"
"My car had not been running for about 8 weeks. I am on disability and living on a fixed income and had no idea how i was going to afford a repair for my car. Nate's community Garage program was able to help me by paying a big portion of my bill and my co-pay was very reasonable... Between their help and me chipping in what i could i was able to get my vehicle running again! The people at both Cannon Falls and Randolph shops were very very kind and helpful. My car needed lots of work but is now safe and operational. I am so grateful, this is a very worthy place to make a donation to if you can. They help people like me on a low-income to stay independent. THANK YOU EVERYONE THERE!" --SUSAN W.
