The journey to reach the community began with a thought and a heart connected to cars. Strictly Vettes of Memphis was founded by Maurice Woodard in Aug 2008, and within the most strongest endeavor, it became a image of giving, sharing, and building the community one community at a time. Maurice Woodard who majored in Music in college somehow never knew that his creative ingeniousness would touch lives throughout the Memphis area, but even greatly throughout the nation. Having developed a plan to unify cars and charity, Strictly Vettes of Memphis is all about cars and giving. Cars that move and mentor to young people who desperately need a re-evaluation of the representation of wealth. Making a decision to devote their cars to charity, Strictly Vettes of Memphis is echoing the sound that drug dealing, gang banging, and criminal behavior is not the way to gain the most out of life, but hard work and education can get you the image you deserve. By donating technology equipment to Georgian Hills Elem. their adopted school, Strictly Vettes has facilitated their time and resources to transfer vibrancy and victory to the community. Through turkey giveaways for Thanksgiving each year, and toy giveaways to low income children in impoverished communities, to their Beat the Heat Fan Drive for the elderly in the summer, Strictly Vettes also spend time with ill children at St.Jude Ronald McDonald House, where we've had cook outs and car shows for the children to judge. Strictly Vettes also partners with community efforts with the Memphis Mid-South Food Bank feeding hundreds with the donations the club gives during the year. By delivering food to the Homeless through the Memphis Union Mission, Strictly Vettes has enjoyed promoting a strong unselfish concern for the welfare of others.
Strictly Vettes hope to leave a legacy for upcoming car clubs to follow. Strictly Vettes formula for success is to combine cars and strong character and share resources and reach out to corvette and non-corvette car clubs and exchange ideas,and explore what other other clubs has to offer. Echoing a new voice to cars the team of Strictly Vettes has touched every aspect of the hurting conditions of a community reaching out for help We believe that a community is only as good as the people serving it, and we want to do our part to make Memphis a better place economically and socially for the children who live in Memphis, knowledge is the key to empower us all to serve on a higher level than expected and we expect great & excellent results from our labor,We can,t save the world but we can surely do our part and try..
Filled with community activities, their club is unified through cook outs, community engagements, and advocacy. Bringing self confidence, self awareness to young boys & girls and promoting Good Health within the African American community, Strictly Vettes shares a brilliant magnitude of enrichment by taking the America's favorite car and endeavoring it to become a combination of change and recognition to charity. By creating strong partnerships with other Corvette & Non Corvette Clubs and Corporate leaders , and community organizations, Strictly Vettes has touched thousands of lives, and aim to open doors that redefine the representation of car clubs everywhere.Strictly Vettes is now an Award Winning Corvette Club with Maurice Woodard the President winning the “2012 Man of the Year Award” / Strictly Vettes involvement with St.Jude Ronald McDonald House warranted the “2012 Volunteers Award” and the “2013 Spirit of Giving Award was given in April”.
