Three Dutchess County residents got a new set of wheels this week.
It was part of a county program called "Way to Work," which helps low-income people get and keep a job, even getting a chance to earn a car to get them to and from work by working hard through the initiative.
News 12 spoke to one person about what it means to get a car.
"I work a lot and want to be able to provide easier, so having the car and being blessed with getting the privilege to have a car is going to make it a lot easier for me to take care of the family and move forward in careers," says Lisa Vasquez, of Poughkeepsie.
County Executive Marc Molinaro says Tuesday's event marked over 900 cars that have been given to county residents since the program began in early 2000.
