SIMCOE – More than 250 less fortunate children in Norfolk County will have presents under the tree this year thanks to Aitken Chevrolet Buick GMC and 98.9 myFM.
Aitken has been serving Simcoe and surrounding communities since 1922. The family owned business is passionately and positively active within the community and that is evident with the Christmas Wish Program. Each year Aitken teams up with a local radio station to give gifts to children in need on Christmas Day. Community members are able to pick a child and bring the child’s desired gift to the dealership.
This is the 14th year Aitken has done the program and works in conjunction with Children’s Aid and local women’s shelters.
“The whole premise behind this program is that there are a lot of children in Norfolk and Haldimand County who are living in conditions where Christmas isn’t financially possible,” says Dealership Principal Linda Cripps. “This is our chance to bless others and it’s a program everyone in the community likes to support. We would really like to thank the entire community for making this program such a success”.
The Christmas Wish Program has helped more than 4500 children locally and continues to exceed expectations every year. If you would like to contribute, the end date to give a gift to the Christmas Wish Campaign is December 15th.
