Southside Dodge and RV Centre has a proud history of giving back to the community in a myriad of ways. Whether it’s through the United Way, the Ronald McDonald House, Aspire Special Needs Services Resource Centre, or one of many other community agencies, Southside is constantly looking for new ways to give back.
On Friday, Southside RV is hosting a special BBQ at its facility in support of the Red Deer Foodbank. This initiative is part of a year round partnership Southside has formed with the Foodbank in an effort to help all those affected by Alberta’s downturn, according to a story by Todayville.com.
And that’s not all they’re up to. Southside is developing a wide ranging community program which may include several partners. Michael Thibeau of Southside Dodge and RV Centre encourages charitable organizations to look him up to see if they just might be a good fit.
