RICHLAND, WA - A local woman got a big surprise Thursday. Radonna Devereaux has been helped in the past by the support Advocacy and Resource Center in Kennewick. And now she is the proud new owner of a 2002 Subaru.

Workers at Atomic Auto Body in Richland bought the car back in June then spent dozens of hours fixing it up. They also got donations from McCurley Integrity Dealerships and Akzo Nobel Refinishes.

Radonna hasn't had a car in years and says she'll have plenty of uses for it.

Getting kids to and from school and doctors appointments and going to fun things, you're restricted by the busses.  It's a huge amount of freedom.  It's overwhelming that somebody would do something like this for someone they never even met before," Radonna said.

The owner of Atomic Auto Body suggests other business owners stop and think how they might be able to help people in need.
