Give & Go for Hamperville Dec. 6

Drive-through fundraising event returns to Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln

With December on the horizon, are you ready to Give & Go?

The annual holiday giving event returns at Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln Wednesday, Dec. 6, collecting food and cash donations in support of Hamperville Nanaimo.

“Last year was so exciting, and seeing the donations literally pile up was heartwarming. I’m glad we were able to continue the legacy of taking care of our community and I absolutely LOVE how the Give & Go brought us all together for even just a few hours,” said Ann Marie Clark, owner of Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln.

In just one day, the 2016 Give & Go collected an amazing 1,634 kilograms of food, valued at $8,987, and raised $2,800 in cash donations.

What you need to know to Give & Go:

  • Gather your donations, including non-perishable food, cash and warm clothing such as jackets, socks and toques.
  • Drive through the Give & Go location at Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln, 3851 Shenton Rd., between 5 and 7 p.m. where volunteers will unload your donations.
  • Stop in and enjoy hot chocolate, coffee, live music and a barbecue by donation.

“We see so much need in the community and this is one way we can help, so please come by, drive through and Give & Go Dec. 6,” says Steve Marshall’s event co-ordinator Krista Ferris, inviting anyone who would like to volunteer or sponsor Give & Go 2017 to connect with her at 250-758-7311 or kristaferris@stevemarshallford.com.

“Thanks to the hundreds of volunteers, donors and community members, we’re thrilled with the success of our first annual Give & Go and we’re excited to try to surpass that this year!”

Hosted every year since 2002, Give & Go supports Hamperville Nanaimo, a partnership between Loaves & Fishes Food Bank and the Salvation Army to distribute Christmas Hampers in the Nanaimo area.
