It was another "White Christmas" at White Auto Body, Inc.
Owners Steve and Valerie White, with the help of their employees, presented a "new" car on Dec. 6 to Shaneka Lewis at their Florissant location, 8300 N. Lindbergh Blvd.
Lewis and her daughter, Alexyia, 9, of South St. Louis were excited about owning the car. Lewis is currently working at a nursing home in Granite City, IL, and she uses MetroLink as her sole means of transportion to get back and forth to work.
The previous car owners, Jim and Lorraine Drew, donated the car after it had been badly damaged in an accident. All the employees at White Auto Body volunteered their time and talents to repair the vehicle. The company also paid for the car's title, taxes and six months of insurance.
During the past 12 years, While Auto Body, a Greater North County Chamber of Commerce member, has donated 27 cars to people who were in need of transportation.
