Wester­gard Ford is work­ing with The Sal­va­tion Army for their third an­nual Toys for Tots event for lo­cal chil­dren one month to 19 years of age.

The Sal­va­tion Army pro­vided an ‘An­gel Tree’ that is lo­cated at the far cor­ner of the deal­er­ship where any­one can grab a tag with a child’s age, gender, and Christmas wish.

“It has to be new and un­wrapped and we at­tach the tag to it and get it over to The Sal­va­tion Army,” said or­ga­nizer and Wester­gard Ford fi­nance man­ager Tif­fany An­drew.

All toys must be brought to Wester­gard’s by De­cem­ber 9. They need two weeks to get ev­ery­thing or­ga­nized, wrapped, and sent. Many tags are still on the tree for in­ter­ested gift-givers. “It’s go­ing well but we have a lot left,” said An­drew. The deal­er­ship plans on fill­ing the boxes of the two trucks found in the foyer and then driv­ing them to the Sal­va­tion Army to drop off the toys.

“It’s a way of giv­ing back,” said An­drew.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Wester­gard Ford at 403823-2500.

Wester­gard Ford general sales man­ager Steve O’Dwyer and fi­nance man­ager Tif­fany An­drew stand next to one of their two trucks be­ing filled with toys for the an­nual toy drive, Toys for Tots. Do­na­tions will be ac­cepted un­til De­cem­ber 9.
