Car Care Program donates 26th car

The Douglas County Car Care Program (DCCCP) gave away its 26th car on a recent DCCCP Saturday. It donated a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am to Linda Mueller of Alexandria.

Mueller’s previous car had a severe gas leak, so she had to get rid of it. With the Pontiac, she is looking forward to possibly getting a job and caring for her granddaughter.

Four other people showed up to Car Care Saturday to have their vehicles repaired.

Twelve volunteers were at Juettner Motors to help fix the four vehicles. Because the biggest repair job for the Saturday morning was completed under warranty, the volunteers finished by 10 a.m.

To donate a car or become a volunteer, call DCCCP at (320) 460-7911 or visit

Cars may be brought to Koep’s Korner in Alexandria with the title or call (320) 460-7911 to make arrangements for pick-up.
