Join Tom Gill Chevy in the Fill-A-Truck Charity Event to Help Area Seniors

December 8th, 2014 by

2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 at Tom Gill ChevyHere at Tom Gill Chevy, we have a long-standing commitment to the communities of Florence, Cincinnati, and beyond. That is why we are calling on all our valued customers and friends to help us feed elderly members who don’t have enough to eat around the holiday season.

Accepting Food and Toiletry Donations This Holiday Season

We are calling this the Fill-A-Truck Charity Event because we are literally trying to fill a truck with food. The event is running until now until December 22nd at noon. To take part, all you need to do is visit our dealership at 7830 Commerce Drive in Florence, KY and drop off as much or as little as you would like to donate.

In order to do the most good, we will be accepting non-perishable food items and toiletries. This can include everything from dry pasta, to canned vegetables, to tooth paste, to toilet paper. Take a look around your house and see if you have anything to spare, or head to the store and load up a shopping cart.

Senior Services of Northern Kentucky

All donated items will be given to Senior Services of Northern Kentucky (SSNK), and outstanding organization that provides services to low-income seniors in our area. The issue of elderly citizens going hungry is a very real but rarely talked about problem in our community. Your donation will go directly to help these seniors get the food and toiletries they need.

Prizes for Donating

The Tom Gill Chevy family is made up of a lot of generous people, but in order to show our thanks for your support and encourage even more people to come out we are offering two great prizes. The first-prize winner will receive an Apple iPad Mini 3, and the second-prize winner will be awarded a $100 gas card. Winners will be chosen by a random drawing to be held on December 22, 2014. All you need to do to enter is make a donation of food or toiletries.

Meals-on-Wheels

We will also be accepting monetary donations to benefit the local Meals-On-Wheels program. This is the season of giving, and we have partnered with SSNK to help some of the neediest people in our area.  Show your support, donate as much as you can, and maybe walk away with a great prize! You can visit us in Florence seven days a week. Please contact the dealership with any questions about donating.
