Valley Motor Center in Van Nuys, Calif., Holds Successful Recycled Rides Event


Valley Motor Center of Van Nuys, Calif., says it has held another successful Recycled Rides event. Valley Motor Center completely refurbished a 2006 Toyota Sienna minivan, and on Nov. 21 donated it to New Horizons, a local organization dedicated to helping adults with developmental disabilities reach their potential and fulfill their dreams. Attending this year’s event were representatives of insurance companies, vendors, parts and paint suppliers, car rental companies and community leaders.

To help kick off Valley Motor Center’s charitable donation were Assemblyman Bob Blumenfield,; Detective Bill Bustos, Valley Division LAPD; and Jason Levin, Sen. Fran Pavley’s office, who all spoke, as well as Marsh Gluchow, owner of Valley Motor Center; Sue Weitkamp, board member and past president of New Horizons; and Matt Williams, Material Damage C.A.R.S. manager of Mercury Insurance.

The vehicle was donated by Mercury Insurance.

“Our goal is to help as many people in our local community as possible by donating a vehicle to New Horizons, an organization that operates right here in the communities we serve,” said Marsh Gluchow, owner of Valley Motor Center. “It is truly our privilege to be a part of this wonderful cause.”


“We are excited about participating in Recycled Rides,” said Holly Rasey, VP for development and marketing for New Horizons. “Valley Motor Center has a long history of helping those in need in their community, and we’re proud that they chose us to be a recipient of this vehicle. We’ll work diligently to make sure the van they are donating to us is put to its very best use and allows us to help as many people as we can.”
