ATLANTA, Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Hip-hop artist and actor Ludacris' Ludacris Foundation and Nissan South gifted 20 needy people in the Atlanta area with cars Sunday, organizers said.

"This year, we want to do something to help youth and families manage during these tough economic times," E! News quoted Roberta Shields, president of the Ludacris Foundation, as saying in a statement. "Having a vehicle to get back and forth to work and day care can make the difference in getting and keeping a job."

E! said winners of the "Ludacares Stimulus Package" contestant drove away with used vehicles and are entitled to free gas for 30 days.

Contestants penned essays explaining why they need a car.
