Key Auto Group matches donations for
DOVER - Key Auto Group is pitching in to help Dover mother Liz Harding purchase
a wheelchair accessible van so she can transport her two handicapped sons
around town more easily and efficiently.
Christopher, 5, and Aaron, 6, are both physically handicapped with severe
limitations in motor skills, mobility, and communication. Both of the boys have
significant development delays.
Further, both children are wheelchair-bound and it's a daily struggle for
Harding to physically fit them and their wheelchairs into the car to transport
them to school, therapy sessions, and doctors appointment.
"Basically, my car is too small to fit my children," Harding
previously stated in a June 21 Foster's article.
Since then, a benefit barbecue/pig roast was held Aug. 18 at the Dover Elks
#184 and The Loyal Order of Moose #443 held a benefit breakfast on Sept. 9 at
its Chestnut Street location in Dover.
And now, Key Auto Group is stepping up, too ? offering to match any donations
contributed to the Liz Harding fund. Recently launched, the fund has already
received $185 in donations, which totals $370 after Key Auto Group matches that

The goal of the project is to raise the estimated $31,000 it will take for the
Hardings to purchase the wheelchair accessible van.
