Autoworks collecting food and holding a draw


In an effort to help the local food banks, Autoworks on Great Northern Road is running a “March against hunger food drive”.

Marion Cipriano is the owner of the store and was looking for a way to give back. If you donate food you get tickets to an end of month draw.

One item gets you one ticket, ten items gets you 15 tickets. The winner of the draw gets a gas pressure washer.

Second place gets a $200 Autoworks gift certificate.

For kids under the age of 16, they get a special opportunity to win a camera similar to a GoPro made by Akasa.

She said the offered to take some down already but the food banks said they would be good until the end of the month.

The announcement of the winners will be made April 1, 2021, SaultOnline will bring them too you also when it is announced.
