As the new auto dealership in Winnemucca, Rackley Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram stepped up to help a local service agency in a big way. On Friday, June 28, the firm donated $5,000 to the Winnemucca Ministerial Association Food Bank. Barbara Sealy, the Food Bank’s Director, said the generous donation would be used to help maintain and operate the agency’s two pick-up and delivery vans.
“Our vans get a lot of miles every year picking up donations from local businesses two times a day, three days a week. As well, we also make out of town pickups several times a year. Then there are the big food drive pickups like from the Postal Workers and Rotary Club’s ‘Build Up the Food Bank’ campaign. The safe and efficient operation of these vans is our goal.” Rackley’s donation will help meet this challenge.
Rackley General Sales Manager, David Wheelock, presented the check to Sealy, along with Winnemuca Ministerial Association President, Stan Rorex. Mr. Wheelock said, “We hope this will encourage other local businesses to support the efforts of charitable organizations like the Food Bank to help meet the emergency needs of the less fortunate. Our company, one of three Rackley auto dealerships, the other two are in Boise and Reno, may be new to Winnemucca, but the Rackley family has been in the area for years. We feel obligated to pay it forward with help like this donation.”
