They looked more like a clothing store than an auto dealership, but it was worth it as Western GM held their annual Coats for Kids event last week.
People were asked to bring new or gently used winter clothing to the dealership on Highway 9 South so it can be handed over to the Salvation Army to distribute to those in need.
"We had 74 brand new snow suits and jackets, which was more than we'd ever received," reported Alycia Rollo. "We have a tonne of good used items that will be going to the Salvation Army as well."
This year, they appealed to people to wash clothing before donating it and Rollo admits it seems to have worked.
"We did receive a lot of laundered stuff," she told 99.5 Drum FM. "We have some stuff we have to send to Alsco, who dry cleans and looks after that for us, but most of the stuff we did receive was washed, so that's a huge help.
"I think Alsco is going to get everything back to us by Wednesday, so hopefully by the end of the week we should be able to get everything over there," she speculated. "We might take a load over today of everything that was new and already washed, but the rest of it should get over by the end of the week."
