Single mom Alicia Steehler gets gift sure to give her a lift

PHOENIX - A single Valley mom got a surprise on Saturday, something that was sure to give her a lift.

A local non-profit organization and businesses got together to make sure she keeps pursuing her dream.

"I was on my way home and I got into a car accident," Alicia Steehler said.

The car was her only way to get back and forth to school where she's a full-time nursing student.

But Joanne Grady, Program Director with Helping Hands for Single Moms, had a solution.

On Saturday morning, the Valley non-profit handed Steehler a set of keys for a pre-owned Honda that had been fully serviced thanks to several locally owned businesses.

"Means a lot, it means I can go to the grocery store," Steehler said.

A simple errand that becomes a difficult task when you don't have transportation.

Steehler was chosen along with a few other single moms to get behind the wheel and back on the road to success.

"I'm so grateful to everyone who's put in the effort, they don't even know us, it's very nice," Steehler said.
