MAYWOOD, Ill -- The automotive program at Proviso East High School in Maywood needs your help.  It is in desperate need of more cars for its students to work on.

There are 250 students at the school who take the mechanics class, but they only have three cars right now to work on.

They should have about 15 cars but last year, debris from a fire at the school damaged some of the cars beyond repair. Others were stolen right from the school.

So the school is reaching out now asking the public for help.

They’ll take anything but are specifically looking for vehicles made after 2000. They have nice, new scanning systems and technology, but can’t use them because the cars they currently have are too old.

They feel confident that donations they receive will be around for awhile. They now have additional security, new lighting system and a locked fence to keep any new cars donations safe.

If you would like to donate, contact Frank Bexes at Proviso East High School:
