With USS Hornet serving as a venerable backdrop, Mike’s Auto Body presented Petty Officer Second Class Eladia Minton with a brand-new car last week. A mother of three, Minton is stationed at Coast Guard Island. She has been unable to afford a car payment and has been getting around with a bicycle with a trailer attached. She has been struggling to afford reliable and affordable transportation because she currently does not have the financial means to manage a car payment. During the ceremony Minton read a heartfelt thank you for Mike’s Auto Body’s generosity, then had a look at her new wheels with her family.
