Local auto dealerships to provide free rides for those in need on Thanksgiving

As public transit will be closed on Thanksgiving in the Coachella Valley, a local auto group has stepped up to provide free rides to those in need.

Ken Garff Automotive will be sending a fleet of cars from Chevrolet Cadillac of La Quinta, Honda of the Desert, and Toyota of the Desert to provide free transportation for those who need it from noon to 8 pm Thanksgiving day.

“We at Ken Garff strive to give back to our community as much as possible and are very lucky to have the resources to fulfill a need in the desert this Thanksgiving, Community Engagement Director for Ken Garff Austin Koluncich-Walker told Cactus Hugs. “We are not just about cars at our dealerships we are about being the best to our employees, customers and community members.”

If you or someone you know needs a safe and reliable way around town, you can sign up here.

They are also looking for drivers.  If you would like to volunteer to drive to those in need on Thanksgiving Day, you can send an email to [email protected].
