South Carolina mechanic gifts repaired cars to people in need
AWENDAW, S.C. — A mechanic in South Carolina is putting people in his community in the driver’s seat — for free.
Eliot Middleton works magic under various hoods, smoking barbecue at his restaurant and repairing donated cars.
He gifts the cars to people without a ride in rural South Carolina. So far, he has gifted more than 60 vehicles.
“They now know that there’s somebody in the community that was looking out for them and cared for them to be able to carry on,” Middleton said.
