Santa has some company riding along in his sleigh this year.
Just in time for the holidays, the Bowling Green Corvette Assembly Plant’s Corvette Club made a large donation of food – some $3,000 worth purchased at Kroger – to the Salvation Army.
Also on Wednesday, the club presented a check for $3,000 to Bellewood and Brooklawn, which will go directly to help children in foster care.
Capt. Michael Cox with the Salvation Army said the donation will be extremely helpful, especially during this time of year and also with some residents still reeling from the effects of the pandemic.
“The donation that we’re receiving today from the Corvette Club Bowling Green Corvette Club is absolutely amazing,” Cox said. “To know that it’s proteins. We all know that proteins are good to help generate heat into our bodies and to help complete meals and so forth.”
The donations are especially noteworthy because the Corvette club wasn’t able to hold its annual car show this year, but sponsors stepped up to help them make the donations, which will also include at least $3,000 more to the American Cancer Society at the beginning of the new year.
Who knows, Santa might trade in his sleigh for a new mid-engine Torch Red Corvette one day!
