Newgate School

Newgate School is located in Minneapolis and has been an integral part in shaping Wheels for Women. The school focuses on giving new mechanics the skills that they need to excel in the automotive world and uses these donated vehicles as a practical textbook. By fixing these cars, students will learn the ins and outs of various makes and models, and gain valuable experience that they can later turn into long-spanning careers. This school has been part of the Twin Cities community for more than four decades and helped to foster a talented generation of mechanics who seek to help the community. We're proud to partner with them, as they've been an integral part of the program.

Wheels for Women

In America, it's incredibly difficult to get anything done without a vehicle. Not every city is built with public transport in mind, and if you venture outside of the city, it's almost impossible to get around. That's why White Bear Mitsubishi is a proud sponsor of the Wheels for Women initiative, which seeks to provide single mothers with a vehicle of their own. Transportation is important and can solve major problems like:

  • Making It to School: Kids need a reliable way to make it to class, and if they miss the bus, they may be out of luck without a proper vehicle.
  • Running Errands: A vehicle makes it easy to travel to the grocery store. Trying to bring back multiple bags on the bus can be a hassle, especially when trying to feed your children.
  • Going To Work: Single mothers do a lot to provide for their children, but their ability to support them depends largely on their ability to hold a job. Having a vehicle can make it much easier to make it to and from work.
  • Doctor's Appointments: The last thing you're going to want to do when a child is sick, is to hop on a crowded bus. Having a vehicle of your own can greatly improve your family's health, as you can easily make it to the doctor or hospital.

Want To Help?

If you want to be part of the Wheels for Women initiative, you can make a tax-deductible donation to the Newgate School itself or look at donating a vehicle of your own. White Bear Mitsubishi functions as a drop site for new vehicles and works as a filter for the Newgate School. The goal is to give away at least three vehicles a month, with a larger goal of at least 36 throughout the year. With the communities help and donations, the program may even see expansion in the coming years. At White Bear Mitsubishi, we want to help the community in any way that we can, as they've helped us grow into the dealership that we are now.
