Van donation helps coffee shop

NANAIMO – Toyota dealership supports Coco Café in Cedar.

A 2014 Sienna van donated by Nanaimo Toyota will help support Coco Café’s catering business.

“Donation of the catering van underscores Nanaimo Toyota’s generosity and their dedication to the community,” Coco Café manager Melanie Cadden said. “This van is going to provide a big boost to café operations and the mission of our co-operative.”

Coco Café is an initiative of the Cedar Opportunities Co-operative, an organization whose mission is to employ people with developmental disabilities. The café, which opened in June 2011, is located on Cedar Road in the 49th Parallel Mall.

“We are a family owned and operated dealership,” said Toyota Nanaimo Scion Sales Manager Reid Hugh. “The values associated with Coco Café align with ours and by supporting the café we believe we are contributing to our community in a meaningful and lasting way.”
