IN HONOR OF FIRST RESPONDERS NIGHT – SEIDNER’S COLLISION CENTER ‘S RECYCLE RIDE PROGRAM PRESENTED A CAR TO A FAMILY FROM THE SHERIFF’S YOUTH FOUNDATION SANTA CLARITA YAL!!! (www.seidnerscc.com)

irwin4All active first responders (Police, Fire, Emergency) were invited to join the fun at Irwindale Event Center on Saturday night, September 19th, for one of the biggest stock car cards of the 2015 season at Irwindale Speedway. It was a very special night that thanked and saluted our great First Responders with a full night of short close-up track racing action and adventure!

There was a spectacular pre-race show with many first-response vehicles and their crews “taking a bow” and getting a cheer from the fans as they took a lap or two on the banked oval at Irwindale. Fans were able to see all of those vehicles close up and met the drivers at the same time that they met all of the night’s race drivers and crews right down on the track’s surface.

It was irwin1truly a great night of celebrating our neighborhood heroes …
A single mother of two young children from our Santa Clarita Youth Activity League Center received a CAR, two car seats and toys for her young children!  Rebecca Medrano is a 22-year-old single mother of 2.  Lyssa (5) and Isaac (2) are in her sole care and custody.  After the father chose a life of drugs, Rebecca was evicted from the residence and had to find a room to rent for herself and 2 kids.  Rebecca had two jobs to make ends meet until she was hired full time at our local Hospital.  Rebecca is currently putting herself through night school so she can provide a better future for her kids.  Rebecca attended our YAL from age 7 to 18, and returns on numerous occasions to volunteer as an alumni.  Rebecca has an unreliable car, which breaks down and causes her more financial hardship than it is worth.irwin3

In honor of first responder’s night, Seidner’s Collision Center recognized the incredible work the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies do each day in our youth centers. Due to her participation in the Santa Clarita YAL youth programs, Rebecca has turned her life around and now her small children will be safe and ready to join our YAL family!

“The Recycled Ride Program is changing lives, and we are excited to partner with them to honor our youth, our deputies and our YAL program! We are also very grateful to Seidner Collision Center for their proactive community outreach and recognition of the authentic accomplishments our youth centers provide.” Dr. K- Director of Programs, Sheriff’s Youth Foundation.
