'Angels' donate cars to those in need

LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

It is certainly better than finding a new sweater or pair of socks under your Christmas tree. Auto Angels will be giving away free used cars to needy people over the next few weeks.

"You can't even describe how you feel when you see the faces of the people and the kids. That's what it is all about," David Stewart, a member of Auto Angels, told FOX 13 on Monday.

Stewart owns Stewart Auto Repair in Winter Haven. It is just one of the shops that takes donated cars and overhauls them so they are ready for their new owners. Most of the vehicles are worth up to $5,000.

This year, Auto Angels got more than 200 applications from people who need a car. So far, it has 11 cars to give away.
