(I-AutoNewsWire.com, December 09, 2014 ) Portland, OR -- The spirit of giving has become a tradition for the staff and crew of Chuck Colvin Auto Center, a local car dealer in McMinnville. Each year employees at this car dealership, take an active part in helping out others in need in the community.
With about 13.9% of the families of Yamhill County living below the poverty level, food banks and food pantries, such as the one at the McMinnville Salvation Army, are often stretched to the limits or beyond.
The Salvation Army Food Pantry is one of the agencies who help out thousands of families and individuals throughout the year. When they have food, or the money to buy more food they can help stamp out starvation. However, when the Salvation Army food pantry runs out of food, they are forced to turn away hungry families in need.
When asked about their involvement in the community, to help with issues such as these, Gary Edwards, General Manager at Chuck Colvin Auto Center, stated in part: "We also have an employee food drive donation for the local Salvation Army. Our employees donate money all year long as a payroll deduction, and we cut them a check every December for them to buy food ..."
Thanks to the benevolence and selfless actions from many of the 50 plus workers and staff at Chuck Colvin Auto Center, they are able to help the Salvation Army from having to turn away families living in poverty who are hungry and in desperate need of food.
When we spoke with the General Manager and others from Chuck Colvin Auto Center they were unable to provide us with the amount of the check that they will be giving to the Salvation Army later this month. There are still more donations to be counted and tallied up because they have not reached the last pay period for this year. What we can be certain of is that it will be a substantial amount, as it has been in years past. What else we can be assured of is that it is a tradition of giving that is going to continue to grow and thrive; to help the Salvation Army in McMinnville to be able to help feed the families and individuals in McMinnville that need it the most.
