CARSTAR employees raise money for Red Deer charities

More than $25,000 donated in 2018

CARSTAR Red Deer and CARSTAR Red Deer South raised more than $25,000 for local charities this year, thanks to recent donations to Red Deer Christmas Bureau and Red Deer Food Bank.

The franchises have been supporting the two agencies since 2004. The teams at both locations played a big part in making the donations possible and plan to continue their contributions in the years to come.

Red Deer Christmas Bureau works to ensure that every child receives a toy on Christmas morning and families enjoy a hearty meal on Christmas Day. Red Deer Food Bank provides emergency food requirements for those in need.
