With the challenging health and economic conditions affecting a large number of families this year, family-owned Auto West Group has enlisted with the Richmond Christmas Fund army to provide extra help for those in need, joining TD, Platinum Pro-Claim Restoration, Herbaland Naturals, Sage and Pacific Gateway Hotel as ‘angel donors’ on the march to bring joy this Christmas season. 

"As a business that has been investing in our community since 1986, we aim to be involved with as many aspects of our neighbourhood as possible,” says Auto West Group president Joachim Neumann.

“This year is one that brings unexpected difficulties to almost all organizations, and society at large,” he continues. “Therefore, we feel a need to increase our commitments, and redirect extra funds to help bring additional measures of relief to those in more difficult situations. It is our hope as a company to make the holiday lights shine a little brighter this winter season for those who are struggling in our community." 

The Richmond Christmas Fund has been servicing the city since 1932.

"Simply put, we have a large number of people who live on the margin in our city and province, and extras such as Christmas food and gift giving creates a vacuum in their life,” says Richmond Christmas Fund co-chair Wayne Duzita. “They are not homeless, however they are working with only just enough money to make it from one pay or social welfare cheque to the other. These are families who have children in our school system that rely on community breakfast or lunch programs." 

In addition to private and public auctions, A Not So Isolated Night 2020 (scheduled for November) along with select fundraisers and toy drives will also take place with social distancing in mind.
