BALTIMORE —

A Baltimore family is in for a very special Christmas morning thanks to the organization Cars with Care.

“Having us come and knock on your door and hand you the keys — free and clear — to a vehicle, I think that’s a big deal,” said Stephen Green, one of the co-founders of Cars with Care.

Cars with Care is an organization made up of a group of Black-owned business owners who buy, recondition and donate vehicles to families in need every Christmas.

“Cars with Care is about giving a family opportunity, giving someone the means to explore opportunities beyond their immediate borders because, a lot of times in the city, if you depend on public transportation or spending money on an Uber or a Lyft, it can be kind of taxing on that family,” Green said.

Cars with Care team members all have backgrounds in auto reconditioning or philanthropy. The team includes Green, who owns Paintless Dent Doctor; Damond Horne, who owns Total Recon; Eric Randall Jr., who owns of KXK Financial; Michael Foy, who owns CM Mobile Detailing; and Kermit Fowlkes, who owns Focus Movers.

Green and his team have been reconditioning and donating cars for the past seven years, and they’ll give away their eighth car this year.

Baltimore nonprofit Hug Don’t Shoot will fill the car with toys and other items for the recipient family. Cars with Care has not picked a winner yet, and they’re still accepting entries on their website.

While the group looks for the next lucky winner, it works to get the vehicle in tip-top shape. It’s a costly process from start to finish, as they purchase the car from Auto Source, which also helps with the mechanical work. The rest of the team helps with the exterior and interior reconditioning, in addition to the detailing.

The Cars with Care team works for free, but they spend thousands to transform the car into the best gift it can be. Every year, they hold a gala to help raise money.

“It would help us get better quality cars,” said Eric Randall Jr., a board member for Cars with Care.

The gala takes place at 8 p.m. Friday at The Cellar 2 in Parkville, and it will include food and live music. Tap here or ticket information on the gala.

“It’s one of those feel-good things at the end of the year,” Randall said. “We are praying for another sold-out year.”

The money from the gala will help Cars with Care continue to give Christmas gifts that can change lives.

“It makes it all worth it for us to see their reactions year after year,” Green said.
