Refurbished Car Sale a Soaring Success

On Saturday, May 9, 2015, the Foundations Office students were a shining beacon in the dull mist of the morning. Students from the Montgomery County Students Automotive Trades Foundation (ATF) impressed staff and customers with their incomparable ability to sell refurbished cars. ATF students were busy from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., when they worked with the customers, took customers for test drives, and provided additional information to customers about the cars. At 11:00, the lottery for the cars was conducted to determine when people were able to select the car they would like to purchase.

The remaining inventory of cars and computers will be sold by the Foundations Office, 12501 Dalewood Drive, Silver Spring, MD 20906. Interested buyers should contact Rick Gangloff at 301.962.4810 for cars.   

This was the last refurbished car and computer sale of the school year. However, our first sale of the 2015-2016 school year will occur in December, at Gaithersburg High School from 9:00 am – 11:00 am. 

Additionally, the Automotive Trades Foundation and Information Technology Foundation rely heavily on support from the community. The ATF is always in need of used cars. To donate a vehicle, please contact for cars 301.929.2190. Please visit our informational page at www.cars2donate.org
