Give and Go a chance for Nanaimo to offer drive-in charity

The Give and Go holiday charity event makes it easy to give.

The event this Wednesday, Dec. 5, at Steve Marshall Ford, is a chance for drive-in charity, with community members encouraged to drop by the dealership with donations for the Hamperville Christmas hamper program, an effort of the Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank and the Salvation Army.

Give and Go used to be held at the Nanaimo Daily News and this will be its third year at Steve Marshall Ford.

“We have got the most giving team, so any time I have a crazy idea and we want to do something good, they just jump on board,” said Ann Marie Clark, owner of Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln. “It’s nice to do something for the community in a fun way. It’s easy for the people in Nanaimo to come and drop off, so I like that.”

Give and Go sees community members drive up to the dealership between 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, when volunteers including local athletes will be waiting to unload vehicles. People are urged to donate non-perishable food, money, or warm clothing such as jackets, socks and tuques.

“Anything that comes in to support the people who are accessing food hampers is great…” said Major Yvonne Borrows with the Salvation Army. “Anything we can do to support and help families have a better time than they might normally have at this time of year, we’re going to do.”

There will be hot drinks, live music, a barbecue and gift bags at the dealership that night.
