MERRIAM, Kansas - Since 2008, Country Hill Motors in Merriam, Kansas has made one family's Christmas a little more mobile by giving away a free mini-van each year. Organizers say it's an event to help families with a real need for dependable transportation.
The dealers thought it would be a small promotion … but it quickly grew. Organizers have received more than 2,000 nominations for needy families since the first event in 2008.
If you know of a family who really needs a dependable and safe vehicle, nominations can be sent via the Country Hill Motors website at http://countryhill.com .
A family will be selected to win the late model mini-van along with numerous other holiday gifts and toys. The winners will be notified in person on December 17th.
