Automotive shop and towing company partner with American Legion to donate vehicles to veterans


CANTON, Ga. – Christian Brothers Automotive announced Friday that it will partner with American Legion Thomas M. Brady Post 45 and the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program to expand the shop’s already existing veteran vehicle donation program.

The program provides donated vehicles to disabled veterans. This includes formerly homeless veterans who have demonstrated the need for a vehicle to get to and from work and single female veterans with the need to transport their children. Since the start of this program in 2018, 33 vehicles have been donated to veterans in need. 

Through partnerships with Christian Brothers and Patriot Towing, the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program will expand its ability to acquire and repair non-operational donated vehicles, as well as tow those vehicles.

Christian Brothers, which currently donates roughly 1,000 vehicles a year to those in need, will provide pre-inspections of all the donated vehicles and will assist in locating vehicles to donate. In addition to the car donations, Christian Brothers will also provide free services and repairs to veterans in need.  

“Our shop is honored to partner with the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program, American Legion 45 and Patriot Towing on this incredible initiative to give back to local Veterans,” said Tony Craft, owner of Christian Brothers Automotive Cherokee. “When Christian Brothers Automotive opened in 1982, our goal was to change the way our guests view the automotive repair industry. Over the past 40 years in the making, we have been true to fixing cars and driving joy, and that’s why I am happy to come alongside great partners to continue to give back to those in need, especially honorable veterans.”
