Denver, CO-- The Denver Rescue Mission is always accepting donations. A unique program they have takes vehicle donations which are given to the men and women who have graduated from their program.
But, last week, the Denver Rescue Mission received a pretty special donation that doesn't comme along very often. It's 1971 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow.
"Our number one goal when we get a donated vehicle is to use it as a gift for the graduates of our New Life Program. The program is designed to take a homeless man and woman off the streets and help rehabilitate them while giving them a chance to re-enter society as self sustaining member. It typically take several years but when they graduate, they have a full time job, they have a place to live, they have money saved in the bank and that is really where the vehicle donation comes in," Vehicle Donation Coordinator at the Rescue Mission Pierce O'Farrill said.
The Rescue Mission says they are unsure of where the Rolls Royce will go now but are thrilled with the generosity of the donation.
"This is totally new for us. We are not used to taking a donation like this, so we are in the process of exploring a few different avenues in terms of selling it. We might look into dealership, possibly an auction or even a private buyer. Really anyone who is interested in having it," O'Farrill said.
