Back to school time may be one of the worst times to be stuck without a vehicle. This was the case for the Dombroski family of Killeen who just received an amazing gift from Caliber Collision.

I think most of us have a story about a time or two when we either didn't have a working vehicle or we had one break down, leaving us without transportation. It can be a real tight spot.

KWTX reports that Antoinette and Patrick Dombroski have a combined 16 years of military service between them, and when they recently found themselves without a car the staff at Caliber Collision decided to lend a hand. Antoinette and Patrick are both disabled veterans.

The Dombroski family received a refurbished vehicle through a recycled ride program on Friday morning. Their vehicle was refurbished by 13 individuals enrolled in the Caliber Changing Lanes Program. Changing Lanes is a 13-week program offered to soldiers who are transitioning out of the military.

So military personnel in the Caliber Changing Lanes Program were able to help two fellow veterans in their time of need. It's a really cool story about the ways our military community is able to help each other.

The Dombroski family is very active with the Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts. They are thrilled they will be able to get their kids around town and continue to assist in activities as volunteers. The Caliber Collision team put some extra surprises in the trunk of the family's new ride that will help with the Scout activities. The crew who refurbished the car also signed the inside of the hood so the family could remember the people who helped in their time of need.

The 13 graduates of the Changing Lanes Program have all been offered work by the Centex Caliber Collision locations in Bell County.
