“Not only are these folks here at New Day just cleaning your car, they’re putting their heart into it,” Terry Fredrickson of New Day Products and Resources said in the story. “It’s fun to be out there in the community, have a car go by and they go, I cleaned that. They take pride in that.”

The mission of New Day is to enable people with disabilities to reach their highest economic, social and personal potential.

“We provide employment opportunities for people to come, that are disabled and they are able to get their experience here learning how to detail a car,” Fredrickson continued in the story. “And once they get that experience, a lot of times in the community they are getting hired because this is a profession that is not just at New Day but they can go outside of New Day and get hired with a meaningful job in the community.”
