Wheels of Success helps families move forward

Tampa, Florida — Getting to work everyday would take a lot of extra time if you had to depend on the public bus system.

Local single mom, Paula Holmes, no longer has to ride the bus 6 hours a day to work and school because she just received a car from Wheels of Success.

Wheels of Success is a non profit group that helps local low income families receive cars and other transportation assistance.

Today Wheels of Success held a luncheon fundraiser to honor local business partners and volunteers who make their mission possible.

Businesses honored today include:
-Sponsor of the Year: Caspers Company McDonald's
-Crew of the Year: Auto Club South
-Driver of the Year: DLT Wholesale
-Community Champion: Altrusa International
-Rookie of the Year: Rent A Wheel
-#1 Fan: Diane Jamai

People who are eligible for the program must be working full time and in need of transportation. A social service agency or business must nominate them.
