Auburn Youth Resources receives retired King County van
As part of King County’s annual Retired Van Donation Program, Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer has secured a retired King County vanpool van for Auburn Youth Resources (AYR).
“As King County continues to have to make difficult decisions concerning the budget, this program becomes even more important and remains a lifeline to support our regions hard working non-profit organizations.” said Pete von Reichbauer, King County Councilmember. “I know this retired van will assist Auburn Youth Resources in carrying out their mission successfully.”
In 1996 the Metropolitan King County Council passed legislation, created by then- Budget Chair von Reichbauer, transferring passenger vans to nonprofit organizations and local governments that meet the needs of low-income, elderly, disabled and young people in our community.
Since then, the King County Council has distributed over 260 retired vans to various non-profit organizations. After eight years in the King County Fleet Division, the vans are retired and prepared for donation.
AYR is a community-based, private, not-for-profit agency, which is part of a network of youth service bureaus serving youth and their families in King County. The mission of AYR is to assist families and youth by providing counseling, prevention, and support services with the goal of helping them become healthy, loving, and self-directed individuals.
