As part of its Change for Charity initiative, Market Street recently donated nearly $11,000 to God’s Garage. The funds were raised by Market Street patrons and The Woodlands Car Club event attendees during the third quarter of 2020 and will assist the organization, which is a garage that repairs vehicles for single mothers, widows and wives of deployed military.
God’s Garage does not require labor costs and gives vehicles away to qualifying recipients. Through donated cars and parts, they are able to bridge troubled times in their recipient’s lives.
Since the program's inception, Market Street patrons and The Woodlands Car Club event attendees have raised more than $200,000 for local charities. Four Montgomery County organizations are selected each year.
The Woodlands Car Club generously raises money at their events, held the first Sunday of each month. Their contributions, coupled with the amount donated to Market Street's 68 parking meters make up the total amount given to a selected charity each quarter.
