A San Ramon, California family had a merrier Christmas than they ever thought possible, after a group of community members raised money to surprise them with a gift they desperately needed — a second car.

Cora Bolton works nights and her daughter Deirdra works the day shift. Together, they’ve been caring for Deirdra’s twin sons while sharing a single car.

One of the boy’s teachers started the fundraising effort and said her best holiday gift was being able to help someone else.

The excited volunteers didn’t have to spend all the money to buy the car.

“They found a nonprofit that was willing to donate a minivan and all the money raised will go into a fund to keep the car running and insured for years to come,” reports KGO-TV.
