Straub Automotive donates toys to soup kitchen


Kids in Wheeling will be getting some unexpected Christmas presents thanks to Straub Automotive.

During the month of November, the dealership took out a portion of money from each of its oil changes. They used the money to buy toys for children in the area.

On Wednesday from 3 to 4 p.m., those toys were given to the Wheeling Soup Kitchen. This was the first time Straub Automotive did something like this for the Christmas season and they are happy to help families in need.

“It is a wonderful feeling to be able to give back to the community. It is such a good cause. We are very appreciative of our customer base. Without our customers we wouldn't be able to do things like this, so we'd like to also thank them,” said Charity Fato, Straub Automotive.

Management and staff also assisted with serving meals to the kids that came. They plan to complete a similar project next year.
