Thelen Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Kia, of Thelen Auto Group, gave back to the community last month by collecting canned food items through its annual offsite community event sale.
The event was held in the KMart parking lot in Bay City from Sept. 18-27. Customers were encouraged to donate two canned goods to the Women’s Center. In total, the dealership collected 230 non-perishable food items.
“We feel great knowing we were able to make a donation to the Bay Area Women’s Center and help those in need in our community,” said Mike Thelen, general manager of Thelen Auto Group. “Our organization prides itself on being community-oriented, and we look forward to raising an even larger number of items to donate at next year’s event.”
Customers who donated food items at the event received raffle tickets to win a flat-screen television. The winner was Jenny Bermejo of Bay City.
