Dealership fundraiser boost Poppy Campaign

Parkers’ Chrysler raises $2,500 for Legion fundraiser

Between Nov. 6 and 17, the auto dealership raised $2,660, donating $100 from every new or used vehicle purchase and $10 from every oil change.

“Parkers’ donation really helped top up a successful Poppy Campaign,” said Poppy Fund chairman Al McNeil. Parkers’ general manager Jim Tabler added “fundraising initiatives are a great team builder for our dealership and our staff enjoy getting behind them as they find it rewarding to help the very community we live and work in.”
