The Doctors are happy to share the story of Terry Franz, also known as "The Car Santa," who is helping some of the 7 million Americans who are behind on their car payments or do not have a car or access to one.
Not having transportation can make getting to school, work and doctor appointments challenging and Cars 4 Heroes is working to make the issue easier for veterans, first responders and those who are experiencing financial burdens.
Terry says the organization gives away 250 to 300 cars a year. In addition to helping with transportation, Terry also helps people in need find resources to find food, clothing and, housing as well.
"I really do get a lot of pleasure out of doing this, not monetarily, but I'm a very wealthy man in rewards that I get back from these people and I wouldn't change anything," Terry says of his work, adding, "There's nothing better than handing someone [car] keys and saying, go get your life moving."
He explains that he's not solving people's problems, but instead giving them a tool to then address their problems on their own terms.
In the video below, see Terry surprise Matthew, a veteran who has been riding a bike for the past 5 years, with a car that will help him follow his career dreams.
