Stepping up for 'Miss Momo' with a surprise new car

Nelson Elementary School teacher’s aide Monica “Miss Momo” Brewer – beloved by family, students, community members, staff and faculty for all she does for them – needed a new car but couldn’t afford it, so her sister set up a GoFundMe account to help raise money for her to get a new car. The account generated more than $25,000 in pledges in just a few days, exceeding its goal. General Motors got wind of her circumstances and stepped in to give Brewer a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu which was presented to her during a lunch-time surprise presentation Thursday, Feb. 11, 2016 at Clovis West High School in Fresno (where many of Brewer's former students attend).
