GREAT FALLS – A Great Falls woman will be able to get around town easier thanks to a donation from an anonymous Family Promise board member.

Linda Williams was surprised with a 2004 Hyundai Sonata on Thursday afternoon.

Linda is a former guest of Family Promise of Great Falls. The agency is dedicated to eliminating child homelessness one family at a time.

Linda, who works at the Comfort Inn, says the new transportation will be a big help, especially to her three kids.

“They go to different schools and daycare and my oldest boy wants to join sports so now he can because I’ll be able to take him” said Linda.

This is the second car a former Family Promise guest has received this summer as part of the organization’s ‘Drive to Greatness’ program.

Since opening its doors in 2015, Family Promise of Great Falls has helped nearly 100 families.

Family Promise is a non-profit, interfaith program that provides a community response to homeless children and their families with children through shelter, meals, and comprehensive support services.
