A local veteran is driving a new car thanks to a generous donation.
Monday afternoon Zach Thomas received a car from Cars4Heroes.
The army veteran returned from Iraq two years ago. He says not having a car has kept him from finding full-time work. He also has trouble getting to the veterans hospital for treatment of his PTSD.
He says this donation will change his life.
"I’m kind of in disbelief. Like a little overwhelmed. I don't believe this is happening because this kind of stuff doesn't happen to me,” Thomas said.
Zach’s mom nominated him for the car. For information on how to apply or donate to cars 4 heroes go to the Cars4Heroes website.
