The team at Comox Valley Dodge is doing what it can to help out during the pandemic.

Not only are they offering to help elderly and other individuals that need assistance with errands, store runs and assistance with everyday essentials, but they also helped get food to families in need.

General Manager Carson Grant said the food drive was part of the Comox Valley Dodge Cares Campaign.

“We managed to feed 23 families, which equalled about 62 individuals throughout the Comox Valley that are a little bit up against it. We focused our energy on trying to help those that are a little less fortunate,” Grant said.

He added that the overwhelming support from the community is something they wanted to give back during these tough times.

“It’s good to give back to the community that’s given us so much and we felt that this was a good opportunity to do so and we felt we need to stay strong here and help those individuals out as best as we could,” said Grant.

“My wife, Summer, and I went and dropped off the food to the families, which was humbling. You see the smiles on the kid’s faces and how excited they are, (and) it makes it all worthwhile.”

Grant says things are slowly starting to return to normal for the dealership, amidst COVID-19.

“At the end of March, there was kind of a bomb that went off in our showroom and we had to minimize our team which was a little bit unfortunate but we’re seeing the light at the end of the tunnel here and there are more and more people coming back to work.”

“We’ve done our due diligence as well, we’ve got plexiglass screens at all workstations, keeping six feet away from each other and clients to make it as safe as possible for not only our employees but our valued customers.”
