Pearson restores vehicle for charity

Staff report

Pearson Automotive’s Performance Collision Center is in the process of restoring a vehicle to be given to a client of The Julian Center.

The Wheels to Recovery Project is Pearson's latest way of giving back to the community. The company wanted to find a way for its employees to more personally connect with the community.

The Julian Center is a shelter for abused women and children located in Indianapolis. The organization has been nationally recognized as a model for communities seeking to improve their responses to domestic violence.

“At Pearson Automotive, we recognize the importance of giving back,” Pearson Automotive Owner John Pearson said.  “Our partnership with The Julian Center on the Wheels to Recovery Project is one way in which we continue to better our company, employees and the community as a whole. When Rich Pedigo, manager of our Performance Collision Center, came to me with this idea, I wanted to make it happen.
