Even Skeletor Embraced the Christmas Spirit

by Doug MacRostie

We once again have a donation box for the Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys For Tots at Rapids Ford. Give gifts that will go to local families in need to help bring a little extra joy under their Christmas tree this year.

“What is this feeling?”

I don’t care if you’re the grumpiest Scrooge in the neighborhood, even Skeletor succumbed to the Christmas Spirit!

Rapids Ford to Rock Toys for Tots

by Doug MacRostie

I was working on a deal when the Rep. from the Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots stopped by Rapids Ford to ask us to be a drop off location for toys this year. As I was walking up I overheard the Rep. saying that it would be great if we signed on, because, “for whatever reason Ford Dealerships bring in the most toys.” Gary, the General Manager, smoothly replied, “Well, that’s probably because Ford is the bestselling brand in America.” Makes sense to me: If we’ve got more people walking in, that should lead to more toys dropped off.

And I intend for Rapids Ford to rock Toys for Tots. I encourage you to take the time to drop off an inexpensive toy (still in the original packaging) and bring a little joy to those less fortunate. I overheard the Rep. say these toys stay local for our community members in need. We’ll be collecting toys through Dec. 20th at Noon.
