WTSP: Tampa Woman Rewarded for Giving Back

Tampa, FL — A Tampa woman is given a special thank you for all that she does to give back to the community.

Andrea Arias hasn’t owned her own car since 2008 but that all changed Wednesday morning, when Wheels of Success teamed up with GTE Financial and gave her a new car.

“It’s incredible… nothing’s ever been given to me, this is amazing,” said Arias.

Arias works for Hillsborough County Public Schools volunteers at Shriners Children’s Hospital and wants to finish her special needs degree so that she can do more for the youths.

“I can go full-time back to school, which in my world is to help children. Our children is our future,” said Arias. “I wanna work with special needs children.”

Wheels of Success gives hundreds of cars to people in need each year visit them at http://www.wheelsofsuccess.org/ to find out if you are eligible for the program.
