Military Family Receives Car for Christmas

Collision Repair Specialists surprised a Military family with a car for Christmas, as part of their "Next Big Thing" event.
(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A military family in St. Joseph got big surprise Friday afternoon.

Collision Repair Specialists hosted an event again this year called the "Next Big Thing."

This year, it was a little different.

The event featured car giveaway for a military family.

Matthew Nicholson and his family were the lucky ones who unwrapped a 2002 refurbished Hyundai Santa Fe.

Nicholson was in active duty from 1994 through 1998, then joined the Air National Guard.

In 2001, he joined the 139th Missouri Air Guard.

He served for 17 years as an airplane electrician, and the owners of Collision Repair said that's just the beginning of his service. 

He gives back to the community when possible, helps out in church, and is the soccer coach for his four kids.

"They fight for us everyday. And, I just felt like this was a good way to give back, and they truly appreciate it," said Janice Eaton.

"To know, you know, there are others out there that are helping us it's amazing," said Matthew Nicholson.

Collision Repair Specialists also partnered with American Legion, Second Harvest Food Bank and the United Way for a food and diaper drive.

They collected a couple hundred pounds of canned goods, and about 40 boxes of diapers.
