Calgary Veterans' Food Bank Donation
In response to the Calgary Veterans' Food Bank's call for help, Village Honda donated $250 worth of non-perishable food at the end of October. This donation encouraged other dealers in the Northwest Automall to donate as well, resulting in almost $1,500 in cash and non-perishable food going directly to the Veterans' Food Bank!
In addition to our efforts, our parent company, Wood Automotive Group President Gerry Wood presented David Howard, President of the Canadian Legacy Project, with a cheque for $10,000 in support of the Calagry Veterans' Food Bank. Cash and non-perishable food donations are needed throughout the year... to support our veterans, please donate here.
