White River Toyota Running Canned Food Drive

Dealership making donation to Springfield Family Center

WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, Vt., Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- White River Toyota is running a canned food collection drive through the end of November. Anyone coming to the dealership to look at its inventory, for regular service or just wants to do a good deed can drop off non-perishable food items and other necessities which will end up at the Springfield Family Center. The White River Toyota team is very proud to be helping to support this worthy cause which not only provides people with a few extra groceries but also gives out free hot meals and operates a day shelter with several important services.  

Reaching out like this is just a small way to support the community that supports the dealership. 

While the primary goal of outfits like the Springfield Family Center is to provide food to hungry people, they also want to make sure these meals are a healthy and nutritious as possible. Experts have pointed out there are few things that every emergency food bank needs to really help, including 100 percent fruit juice, water-packed canned fruit and whole grain pasta noodles.  

Also, given the time of year, having a few holiday staples on hand like stuffing and yams can really do a lot of good. Finally, the main thrust of the effort is about getting people fed, but sundry items like soap and shampoo are also important. Brand new and clean socks are actually the most requested item by operations like the Springfield Family Center. 

Anyone can view the White River Toyota inventory by visiting the dealership's website, www.whiterivertoyota.com. The showroom is located at 303 Sykes Mountain Avenue, White River Junction, VT; this is also where people can drop off their donations for the food collection effort. Anyone with questions about making a donation can contact the dealership by calling, 802-299-2800.
