In November, Sunrise Banks donated $5,000 to Newgate School, a nonprofit automotive technical school located at E. Hennepin Avenue and Highway 28. Since 1975, the school has offered tuition-free auto body and auto mechanics training for unemployed or under-employed young adults. The school helps lowincome students become certified as auto technicians in 18 months and the school has an excellent placement rate. As part of their training, students refurbish donated cars and vans for Newgate’s “Wheels for Women” transportation assistance program. These vehicles are provided at no cost to promising single working moms to help them transition off welfare.
