Winnipeg Harvest

Winnipeg Harvest

During the months of April and May we at Birchwood Chevrolet, in partnership with Winnipeg Harvest, ran a campaign to donate food to those in need in our local community. With the purchase of a new vehicle during these two months a customer could donate a non-perishable food item and receive $50 off their vehicle, up to a value of $500. At the end of the two-month campaign we donated a total of 490 pounds of non-perishable food to Winnipeg Harvest. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this great cause!
