Free gas giveaway held at Milwaukee gas station on 8th and Atkinson

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Kai Trimble-Lea owns the gas station at 8th and Atkinson in Milwaukee. Monday morning, cars lined up there for free gas. 

"Everyone was excited, we saw some tears, so it was a blessing," Trimble-Lea said. 

The Greater Milwaukee Foundation donated $20,000 for a gas giveaway and chose this station. Gift cards were handed out at the Juneteenth festival Sunday and more were passed out Monday. 

Each car got $50 worth of gas. 

Timble-Lea says she expects to do this again, though she doesn't know when.
