Christmas Toy Drive
January 24 2018, Southland Kia
In December of 2017 Southland Auto Group kicked off our tenth annual Christmas Toy Drive in support of the United Way of SE Alberta. With your generous support over each of the past 10 years, the Southland Auto Group has been able to collect a mountain of toys to support the United Way and it’s member agencies as they help children in need in our community. This year was another fantastic success thanks to the help of local individuals, businesses and politicians!
Thanks to the valuable contributions of our donors The United Way of SE Alberta received a record-breaking amount of donations with this year’s mountain of toys totalling over $37,000!
We’d like to extend our thanks to MY96 and 102.1 CJCY for coming to our dealership and broadcasting live while helping take in donations of toys!
And none of this would’ve been possible without all the incredible support from our donors including: Skinny’s Smokehouse, The Cheesecake Cafe, MP Glen Motz, MLA Drew Barnes, Mayor Ted Cugston, London Drugs, MLA Bob Wanner, Ryan Sparks of the MDA, Summit Motors, Farm Land Supply, NAPA Auto Parts, CARSTAR Collision and Glass, Xtreme Auto Detailing, Jeff McKee of Volkswagen Finance, Khan Auto, Davis GMC, Sonic Body & Paint, VW Canada, High Tech Paint & Collision, Industry Pub, Chief Andy McGrogan, Mr. Lube Medicine Hat, Gary’s Mobile Services, Ziebart, Ronco Oilfield Services, Ted’s Auto Body, Bosch Auto Parts, The Prairie Fork, House of Cars Medicine Hat and our many individual donors!
The donated toys were packed up on December 21st and taken to the United Way offices for wrapping before being distributed to local children in need!
Once again THANK YOU MEDICINE HAT for all your incredible generosity and community spirit that made this event a great success!
