Mountain View Equipment launches toy program
MIDDLEBURY — Mountain View Equipment (www.mountainviewequip.com) has launched its 2015 “Kids and Christmas” program at each of its four dealerships. “Kids and Christmas” is a program where customers have an opportunity to make a donation to a local charity. If they choose to do so, they receive 10 percent off their transaction, up to a $100 discount on in-stock parts and toys.
At the Middlebury location, the charity being supported is Middlebury’s HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects) organization, which supports local families in need, through a variety of programs and services. Specifically, the HOPE Holiday Shop seeks to ensure that all children in the community will have a few gifts to open on Christmas morning. Income-eligible parents make appointments with the organization to select items for their children — clothing, toy or doll, or activity, games and books. The shop is funded entirely by community donations of cash and toys. The HOPE Holiday Shop serves around 600 or more local children each year.
The “Kids and Christmas” program will run through Dec. 18 at each of Mountain View Equipment’s four locations. Suggested donations of $5 may be made at the parts counter by cash or check. Some restrictions apply to discounting.
