Auto dealers help the needy

December 22, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
Some Southern California auto dealers stepped up Friday to help the needy during the holidays. The Honda Dealers Association held a charity event in Santa Monica. The Ocean Park Community Center also took part.

They served holiday meals to the homeless, and handed out backpacks that contained: toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, lotion, and brushes.

Honda dealers say this is especially important for them when other car companies are asking for handouts.
