Thank You Peterson for our New Van!

Thank You Peterson for our New Van!

By Keith Yee in Donation on January 18, 2018

We are thrilled to show off our new van that we were able to purchase thanks to a very generous donation by Peterson!

The van, a Dodge Ram 3500, has enormous carrying capacity that can carry three pallets of items at once- saving us precious fuel and reducing the number of trips we need to take.  The high box allows us to pickup tall pallets and to stand up inside the van- saving the backs of our volunteers and letting us accept more donations.  This van will be very useful as we find new ways to help our neighbours in need.

Peterson donated the entire funds we needed to purchase the van.  This donation is in addition to the matching donation drives they held in 2017 and in 2016.  We are overwhelmed by their thoughtful, generous, continued support!

Thank you, Peterson, for the new van.  It’s already making a huge difference in how we can help the people we serve!
