Shane Harris organizes $15,000 gas giveaway to help families in need

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Several local organizations are hosting a free gas giveaway to highlight the surging gas prices and need to help working-class families.

Over 500 working-class and low-income families registered for today’s “Gas Me Up” event and went to get their tanks filled amid the rising gas prices.

Funds for the gas giveaway are being donated by the People’s Association of Justice Advocates, along with the County of San Diego Black Chamber of Commerce, the Heartland Coalition, San Diego-based attorney King Aminpour, Attisha Enterprises Inc., the Chaldean Coalition and some anonymous donors.

On “Good Morning San Diego”, KUSI’s Kacey McKinnon was out at the Arco with several community leaders to talk about this event and how it is helping San Diegans in need.
