Nonprofit provides families with transportation in Chicagoland
A local man has been helping to provide families in need with transportation of their own via his nonprofit. Romas Povilonis has served as the executive director of Cars of Hope for nearly a decade. The 501(c)3 nonprofit that is run primarily by volunteers, repairs and donates cars to deserving families in the western suburbs of Chicago. Any car donated, whether it is in running condition or not, will be accepted by the organization and they will make any repairs needed in order to make sure that the vehicle is safe, affordable and reliable for families to maintain themselves.
With winter here to stay, it is important that Chicago residents take extra care to ensure their car is protected from the elements if they will be street parking. If you do not regularly park your car in a garage or carport, then there is nothing to stop the elements from wreaking havoc on your vehicle. A good quality car cover will help protect your car from the elements year round and preserve its value. The Chicago Tribune has shared consumer reviews on the best car covers on the market.

The best car cover
If you don’t have a garage or a carport, then there’s nothing to protect your vehicle from the elements. A car cover will protect your car from environmental damage and preserve its value.
Car covers vary in their size and fit, as well as their protective features. Some covers are designed for daily use and protection against weather, while others are better suited to protecting vintage cars in your garage. Choosing the right cover means considering your vehicle, environment, and needs. Learn more
