Local business seeks to give away van to person who needs it

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Nimey's Riverside Auto in Yorkville has decided to help a local person in need -- with a set of wheels.

The dealership is giving away a Honda Odyssey minivan to a local person who has the greatest need.

How will they find that person?

They're asking people to write letters telling them why they need it -- and they've already received many tearjerkers.

"I think it's a great idea, because there's a lot of people we realized who go without a vehicle every day," said Jessica Nimey of Nimey's Riverside Auto. "A lot of people take so much public transportation with their kids to doctor appointments, and we realize how many people are in need of a vehicle."

You can write a letter stating why you need this van and drop it off at Nimey's in Yorkville at 34 Whitesboro St. The deadline for the letters is June 15.
