These are wonderful programs and hopefully being used by those intended Roy Kelley . We have several such give-a-ways here and it always amazes me how many people show up in Escalades and other $100,000 vehicles.

Hi Roy... every year it makes me sad that these kinds of events are so necessary... but it also makes me happy to see communities step up and help (as we do in Charlotte, as well).
