Habitat truck saved from scrap heap
SAW Habitat for Humanity thought they were out of luck on a Chevy truck that had been driven too hot and was destined for the scrap heap. But thanks to master mechanics at Elliott Automotive in Staunton, that truck will once again be able to do local pickups for Habitat’s ReStore, keeping tons of other materials out of the landfill.
A ReStore is a Habitat thrift store specializing home furnishings and building supplies oopen to the general public to raise funds for Habitat’s mission work.
Pictured left to right are the Elliott Automotive mechanics who worked on the project: Jake Castellano, Tyler Lightner, Habitat Board Member Vince Ennis (receiving keys), project lead mechanic Eric Stevens and Service Manager Lloyd Puckett.
