This summer, a Yucaipa family in need will have a life changing opportunity to win a car, thanks to a local auto body shop.

Ben Clymer’s The Body Shop has partnered with Auto Club of Southern California, Spreen Honda, Yucaipa Mayor Denise Hoyt, Martin Auto Colors, PPG and Community Connect to provide one family the gift of a car.

The gift will come complete with one year of registration and insurance, a trunk full of groceries and possibly car seats.

To be eligible for the car giveaway, the recipient must be a resident of Yucaipa, eligible to be insured, have a valid driver’s license with a clean DMV record and be in need of a car.

Community Connect will be collecting the applications and making a recommendation for the recipient selection to Ben Clymer. The staff at Ben Clymer’s will make the final selection from the applicant who most demonstrates the need and life change that a car would bring to their family.

Applications can be submitted by potential recipients, a friend or family member or an agency. Applications must be received no later than 5 p.m. on May 17.

The car will be given in a presentation set for June 19 at 11 a.m. at Ben Clymer’s The Body Shop, located at 32247 Dunlap Blvd., Yucaipa.

For an application or more information, go to the Community Connect website at or email Bobbie Neff at
