Trenton’s Pettijohn Auto Center has embarked on a charitable initiative to bolster the Grundy County Food Pantry this holiday season. The dealership is hosting a food and fund drive, aptly named “Fill the Ford for Christmas.” Alan Ferguson, spokesperson for Pettijohn Auto Center, announced that a new Ford Maverick pickup truck is prominently displayed in the showroom, welcoming community members to contribute canned goods, non-perishable items, and monetary donations.
The initiative focuses on filling the truck’s bed with donations. When it is full, the Maverick will transport the collected items to the Grundy County Food Pantry, directly benefiting those in need within the community. Ferguson emphasized that all monetary contributions would be used locally to purchase additional necessities for the pantry.
Residents and supporters can make their donations at Pettijohn Ford, located on Oklahoma Avenue in Trenton, during regular business hours. The food drive will conclude on December 20th.
