Wheels of Hope gives cars to needy families

August 23, 2012 12:00:00 AM PDT
Some local mechanics are giving the gift of wheels to a deserving person in our community.

The Wheels of Hope group wants to help someone get some much needed transportation help. Next week they will giveaway a 1999 Ford Explorer to a person or family that is in need of a vehicle. You can nominate someone to be the recipient of this gift.

Rusty Rasmussen has been involved in the project for some time. He says the group came together after hearing about a similar donation in Denver, Colorado. He knows this small gift can go a long way for someone in need of a vehicle.

The deadline to nominate a deserving person or family is this Monday, August 27. You can drop off a nomination at participating auto services around town.

This is the third vehicle the group has given away to a person in our community.
