Dealership collects shoes for orphans
A dealership in Georgia met two goals with a recent charity drive: It collected footwear for orphans around the globe, and it demonstrated the storeês community spirit.
Prater Ford in Calhoun, Ga., repeated a program from last year, when it encouraged members of the community to drop off new shoes and socks in the showroom to be donated to Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls. The donated footwear will be distributed to children in the U.S. and around the world through the charitable organization.
Itês a healthy way to stand out in the community, and everyone wants to help a child who doesnêt have any shoes, Prater Ford President Jimmy Prater told Edmunds.com reporter Rene Wisely.Download Bulletin PDF
