Hearts For The Holidays

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

For five years, Hardin Chevrolet has been donating a vehicle through the Hearts For The Holidays program. This year's winner is Amanda Thibault.

Amanda, an employee for the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, was nominated by her co-workers. She was selected out of 200 applicants.

Hardin Chevrolet General Manager, Jamey Eisenbarth, says Amanda is very deserving of the prize.

"You know Amanda is just a young single mom here in Billings. Kind of works everyday; you know she is a full time hard worker, and raising 3 young kids under the age of 5 by herself, and its tough," said Eisenbarth.

"It means so, so very, very much, and I really do appreciate it this. Nothing really happens to me like this. This is a very, very big surprise," said Thibault.

Besides receiving a van, Santa also stopped by to give Christmas presents to Amanda's children.

She says it will be nice to have a reliable car for everyday tasks.
