"Cars 4 Christmas" is a special organization that fixes up cars and donates them to people who need a little help. Saturday night, Matt Mitchell, who served in Iraq, was given a car.

"When they told me, I was kind of skeptical," said Mitchell. "Like, are they punking me," said Mitchell.

It all started when Mitchell's mom heard about "Cars 4 Christmas" taking applications on a radio program. She sent in one for her son and soon he got a call telling him he had been chosen. It's something his family is still amazed at.

"I just still can't believe it," said Tim Mitchell, Matt's father.

Mitchell said he had been walking nearly 3 miles to and from work every day. Without a car, there were some jobs he just couldn't take. Now he hopes to change that.

"I'll be able to get a better job," said Mitchell.

"Cars 4 Christmas" expects to give away at least 10 cars in the next few weeks. Saturday, they held a bowling fund raiser in Wichita to help keep the wheels turning. They will make sure as many people get cars as possible.
