OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — With spread of COVID-19, there are people who can't leave the house. So Nissan of Omaha is offering up not only their cars, but their services to help out those in need.

Shiny cars, great sales and now a community service helping out those unable to help themselves. Nissan of Omaha is looking for people, companies and organizations to contact them if they need, food, supplies or medications delivered.

"They don't have the ability to go and get their own groceries and some are scared to go out that have deficiencies to the immune system," said executive manager Jason Jones. "So we decided it would be an excellent opportunity to take some of our resources that we have and give back to our community."

Employees say they are anxious to get behind the wheel and pitch in.

"Getting out there and helping people out in their time of need is what I am most excited about," said salesperson Maddie Lynch. "I'm really excited to do my part to help."

Nissan of Omaha has about 400 cars at their disposal and almost 80 employees driving this program to make sure it is a success.

"It's more than just a business relationship; we want to do everything in between," said Jones. "We want to be good partners in our community; if someone needs help in our community, we want to be the first ones to step up."

The program is called Everything In Between, and is available Monday through Friday.

Jones, says just give him a call, and he will personally make the arrangement. Just give him a call at 402-493-4000
