For this month’s Community Spotlight we are featuring the local business, Road Worthy. They are a non-profit that helps families and individuals get back on the road when their cars are down. The founders, Mike and Amy Lee Sewell started Road Worthy in 2021. They had one goal in mind, to help those struggling with reliable transportation to get back on the road. Without a car everything is more difficult. Going to the grocery store, taking kids to school or activities, getting to work, etc. Mike worked as a mechanic right after high school and knew how to fix just about any vehicle, which fueled his passion and love for cars. Amy Lee has enjoyed a long career in human resources and recruiting and has a passion to help people find meaningful work and a fulfilling career.
Mike and Amy Lee knew they were blessed to be a blessing and wanted to give back to the community. As a single mom with three young children for six years, Amy Lee had been in situations where she was in need of car maintenance and did not have the funds to fix it. She knew firsthand the anxiety and stress that came along with car repairs or finding reliable transportation. With Mike’s lifelong passion for all things mechanical, he was all in for the idea of a non-profit helping those that couldn’t afford car repairs. Therefore, Road Worthy was established as an avenue to get people back on the road to provide for their families and open up the path to living their best life! Their mission is to help people secure personal transportation and avoid becoming impoverished by offering vehicle repair and replacement assistance.
You can help Road Worthy achieve their mission by donating once or by monthly recurring donations. You can also volunteer your time if you are a mechanic, have shop space or own a tow truck. Lastly, if you have a vehicle that you are no longer in need of, you can donate it to Road Worthy to provide to families in need of transportation assistance. We admire Road Worthy for their work to remove obstacles by helping people get back on the road in order to open pathways to employment, healthcare and other fundamental needs.
