Rescue Mission Van Overhaul
This year, Quality Cares will be overhauling the Women and Children’s Rescue Mission Van. This van is a very important part of the Rescue Mission because it takes the families to and from essential appointments and provides them with a more enjoyable ride. The Rescue Mission has served the Roanoke community since 1948 and Quality Cares would like to give back to an organization that has done so much for those around them. Please let us know if you are interested in helping out with this exciting project.
We currently have temporary tattoos, posters and t-shirts available for purchase with all proceeds going towards this overhaul. Please stay tuned for more details on how to get involved.

In April of 2011, Jr , the manager and estimator at Quality Auto Paint And Body received an email from an old friend with the story of a bullied college student named Jordan Addison. Jr knew immediately that he had to do something to help. He invited Jordan to the shop to view the damages in person and then went above and beyond to completely overhaul Jordan’s car. We fixed the doors, gave him new tires, a new paint job, tinted windows, new security system, and a new stereo.
The WDBJ7 coverage of the vehicle reveal went viral overnight. QAPB immediately starting answering phone calls from all over the world. A week later, Richard took a surprising phone call from The Ellen DeGeneres Show. He was soon on his way to Hollywood to be on Ellen’s season premier. Jr. left Hollywood with $25,000, a commercial that included Olympic gymnasts, Patrick Dempsey, Pink as well as an experience he will never forget.
