Councilman Tom Owen (D-8) is praising the effort of one local business to help keep children in need warm through the coming winter. AcuDENT’s “Dents for Kids” program is underway to assist young people at Boys & Girls Haven by trading automotive dent repairs for winter coats.
Every Friday in December, AcuDENT Paintless Dent Repair will offer up to one, 3-inch dent repair, normally a $159 value, for free. In return, the customer must provide an M-XL adult sized winter coat that equals $50 or greater that will be donated to Boys & Girls Haven.
“I believe this is an innovative way to help Boys & Girls Haven and at the same time shows community involvement by a local business during the holiday season,” says Owen. “Anytime we can help those in need, it helps all of us enjoy the spirit of this time of year.”
The company has worked with Boys and Girls Haven in the past, and realized the specific need for coats for the boys and girls in this organization.
“AcuDENT is always looking for ways to give back to the community,” says owner Gavin Reherman. “This seemed liked the opportunity with the largest impact. Many of these children go through the winter without any type of protection from the cold.”
Since 2004, AcuDENT has served clients from its retail shop, newly located at 1647 Norris Place, and from several reputable car dealerships and body shops in the area. To participate in the program, please call AcuDENT-Paintless Dent Repair to make an appointment at (502) 648-2693.
Boys & Girls Haven began in 1950 and currently serves over 800 children each year from across the state of Kentucky through a variety of programs. The kids they serve have come to Boys & Girls Haven to heal from abuse and neglect. Boys & Girls Haven gives these kids a sense of belonging and a home. They receive the therapy they need to recover in a warm and caring environment.
