MANKATO, Minn. -

Jerry's Body shop and Minnesota Valley Action Council join together to donate a vehicle to a deserving family.

Douglas Foster, Sally Beltz and twenty month old Douglas Junior were selected from a number of nominations to receive a restored 2009 Dodge Journey.

This vehicle was donated to Recycled Rides through Progressive Insurance... and Jerry's Body Shop put in $5,500 of donated parts to restore it.

Douglas Foster, along with Sally Beltz and their 20 month-old Douglas Junior, talks about his experience leading to today, saying "Walking for 2 years back and forth to work, going to get groceries and things like that. We did have rides from her sister and some of our family members, this is one of the biggest blessings we could get right about now."

If you would like to donate a vehicle, contact Minnesota Valley Action Council at 507 - 345 - 6822.
