Heartland's car giveaway program continues to grow


WILLMAR -- A unique donation program that gives cars to low-income people has experienced phenomenal growth.

Since it was started last year, Heartland Community Action Agency's "Helping people get there" program has collected 29 vehicles to provide low-income families with reliable transportation to work and school.

Most of the vehicles have been donated by area residents. Businesses, including Jennie-O Turkey Store, have also donated cars and trucks.
