Northwest Dodge will be hosting a Toy Drive & Care Package Event to collect New Toys for children ages 3 months to 16 years old as well as Care Packages to be mailed to our military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. Toys can be dropped off at the dealership any time prior to and on the day of the big event November 13th 2011. All toys collected will be distributed in December to children of wounded soldiers in December. This year we have over 250 kiddos on the base and would like to have enough toys for all of them. ****Walmarts Gift Cards are strongly encouraged. Walmart in Marble Falls has made us an offer and we will be able to MAXIMIZE our buying power through them.****
There will be plenty of activities for children, so bring the whole family, invite friends..... GAME WILL BE TELEVISED ON THE BIG SCREEN!!!
Care packages will be sent to soldiers deployed overseas and in harm's way. They won't celebrate Christmas like those of us back here in Houston; they are off defending our freedoms and it is our chance to give back. Say Merry Christmas by providing care package items that will make a difference for these brave men and women. Care package items needed are toiletries like: shaving cream, deodorant, razors, toothpaste, underwear, and t-shirts.
Main Event: Northwest Dodge is hosting this event benefitting Wheelers for the Wounded, MoMsUSA and Cypress Cares. The event will take place at Northwest Dodge located at 19616 Northwest Freeway, Houston Tx. 77065. The date for event is November the 13th from 10am to 4pm. The need has never been greater as so many troops remain deployed in harm's way; both for the soldiers in the field and their families who once again will spend the holidays without their loved ones. For all those that donate to this worthy cause you will receive raffle tickets to win big screen TV's, ipads, ipods, and numerous $25 gift cards to local restaurants and businesses. For those in the off-roading community you can win accessories for your vehicles in a special show-n-shine event.
