On November 8, 2019 Sgt. Michael Shuster U.S. Army was the recipient of a Ford Escape via the recycled rides program. The Shuster family applied for the program in July. In partnership, Schaeffer Autobody Centers, Travelers Insurance, and Enterprise Rent-a-Car provided the Shuster family with a more reliable vehicle. The Recycled Rides program works to donate refurbished cars to people who need them most.

The vehicle will allow the Shusters to get their twin sons to and from all their sports games and practices. But also has the towing capabilities for Michael’s lawn care service. Michael is currently studying horticulture with the hopes of owning his own lawn care business some day. He is currently maintaining lawns for his family members, elderly, and veterans, all without expecting payment.
