Help Hogan’s Help the Food Bank

Hogan Chevrolet and the Scarborough Sharks Girls Hockey Association have teamed up to fight hunger this Christmas and, together, they collected a giant box filled with food for the Daily Bread Food Bank.

They have decided to continue collecting non-perishable foods until the end of 2014 and invite everyone to help in their quest, by dropping off a food donation at Hogan Chevrolet Buick GMC - 5000 Sheppard Avenue East, between McCowan and Markham Roads.
