Wheels from the Heart Empowers Single Moms


BOCA RATON, FL – Local media outlet WRPBiTV and the Wheels from the Heart Foundation are seeking to empower single mothers experiencing financial hardships by providing vehicles for them and their families. In the last 15 months, they have given away 33 cars to women in need and are continuing to spread awareness for the cause. On May 6, WRPBiTV’s Wayne Filowitz and Gina Barron hosted a Wheels from the Heart event at Bardot Salon and Spa in East Boca Raton. Their goals were to give another car to a woman in need and raise awareness about this growing issue. Gina Barron stated, “We want to empower women so that their children can see them overcoming obstacles and being successful.” The invitation-only affair was attended by about 75 people and featured a fashion show sponsored by Chic Devotion as well as food and beverages by Melting Pot. As a car dealer, Steve Muschlitz, founder of Wheels from the Heart, continually met single mothers who were in need of a vehicle but couldn’t afford one. The stories the women shared spawned his passion and ultimately, the creation of the foundation. Today, Wheels from the Heart works diligently to find funding to purchase vehicles and have them repaired before giving them to struggling mothers. The foundation has also built a community network of businesses that have joined the cause and assist the women with other needs they may have.
