Next Generation Deserving Rides was started in 2014 by automotive shop owners Jeremy Austrum and Shawn Kline. They are grateful for the communities in which they live and work, and they believe in passing down the value of giving.
“Western Wisconsin communities are incredibly generous. Volunteerism and service to others are key reasons why our communities continue to thrive. Deserving Rides is a good way to give back to our community. This is just another way to give to someone who truly deserves it and who could really use a good running vehicle.” Shawn Kline
The Next Generation Auto Team- along with their local partners Tri Star Engines, Wynveen Auto Body, and Westconsin Credit Union – understand the importance of giving back to their community by recognizing those who give back every day.
Every year, the Next Generation Deserving Rides awards a vehicle that has been reconditioned to drive and look like new to a worthy and deserving person from the community. The Next Generation Auto Family of owners and employees donate their time and labor to “Rebuilding Rides, to Rebuild lives.”
