Oshawa, Ontario — The Durham Children’s Aid Foundation (DCAF) near Toronto was treated to a procession of presents just in time for the holidays, courtesy of General Motors Canada and its dealers.
Packed full of toys and gifts for kids in the Durham region, the load carried by a convoy of Oshawa-built Chevrolet Silverado pickups was made possible by gift and monetary donations made by GM employees and dealers totalling $160,000. GM employees were responsible for $36,000 in gift donations alone.
In GM’s press release, the company said this mission carries on the legacy of Sharon Clark—a former file clerk at the Oshawa assembly plant who gave gifts to local children for more than 50 years.
Clark passed away after a battle with cancer in April 2020.
“Many thanks to General Motors Canada, its associated dealers, the men and women of Unifor and the great City of Oshawa for their heartfelt demonstration of kindness and generosity. I am so happy to see that the legacy of Sharon Clark continues to make a meaningful impact on our community,” said Oshawa mayor Dan Carter.
