The local Hmong Association is very thankful to a local insurance company, who donated a car for them to use.
State Farm Insurance donated this 2005 Chevy Impala to the Wausau area Hmong Mutual Association. We were there as the keys were handed over.
Director Peter Yang says it will be used by about 100 Hmong refugee families from Thailand who live in the Wausau area.
"They will use it for transportation to Hmong families and provide education and training to Hmong refugees," said Peter Yang of the Wausau Hmong Association.
Yang says the car will help the refugees learn how to drive, and make sure they have access to services in the community.
