Playing Meet the Car Santa Who Helps Veterans Get on The Road Again

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.
