Local businesses unite to change the life of an OLHSA client Posted: October 11, 2012 Updated: October 11, 2012

It has been said that there is strength in numbers. When individuals come together to form a team, great things can be accomplished. Citizens Insurance, along with Superior Collision, Hartland Insurance Agency and the Livingston County United Way, took this advice to heart and joined forces to change the life of one of OLHSA’s many deserving clients.

On Wednesday, October 10, Elizabeth Feltis of Howell was presented with a 2001 Chrysler 300 courtesy of the Recycled Rides program, a nationwide project that donates reliable transportation to struggling families. Feltis is the first local recipient of this program.

Feltis was struggling to provide for her family of four, including a 19-year-old special needs son, after their sole vehicle was totaled by a drunk driver in July.

When Citizens Insurance sent out the call for recommendations of a local family in-need of a vehicle, OLHSA knew it had the perfect candidate. Denise Witt, Community Services Coordinator at our Livingston location, nominated Feltis as a potential recipient because she could see that Feltis was truly striving to provide a better life for herself and her family.

Witt’s nomination, along with the extensive help provided by some of our local business partners, showcases just one of many ways OLHSA goes above and beyond to assist our friends and neighbors in their time of need.
