Holiday Auto Group owner Matt Johnson has vowed to give back to the communities which support his businesses. Recently, he decided to ask the local communities to nominate someone they knew that had experienced an exceptionally hard year in a contest he called “You Deserve A Holiday” car giveaway. After reading stacks of local stories submitted by nominations, both heartbreaking and heartwarming, choosing the winner was not an easy task.

While the requests for nominations indicated there will be one lucky winner chosen, Holiday had so many deserving nominations they decided to give away two.
