Margo Osmond, administrative assistant at Lloydminster Honda, expects to stuff this 2016 CR-V at the dealership at least once with donated food and items for the Lloydminster Salvation Army Food Bank.

At Lloydminster Honda, filling up means stuffing a 2016 CR-V in its showroom with goods sought by the local Salvation Army Food Bank.
The dealership hopes to make several runs to the food bank before Christmas thanks to donations from folks like Lloyd Gee who dropped on Friday with two bags of groceries.
“I’d seen it on the news and I thought well I’ll bring some groceries down,” said Gee who is an operations supervisors at the Husky refinery.
He said he’d amassed the goodies to give out at Halloween, but this year no trick or treaters came by his house.
“I brought some Kraft dinner, and some pork and beans and those sorts of things — those non perishable items,” said Gee.
The Honda food drive is accepting non-perishable food, household items, hygiene products and small gifts for Christmas and anything a family can use year round.
“It’s raising products or money or whatever we can get for the Lloydminster Salvation Army Food Bank to hopefully help someone in need this year,” said Margo Osmond an administrative assistant at the dealership.
“Apparently their need is a lot higher this year going month the month.”
Osmond said they are hoping to stuff the vehicle more than once if people like Gee keeping coming in.
She noted the food drive got underway last Monday so there is plenty of time for a few car refills.
“It’s awesome to see local people coming in to help our needy. Customers are coming in, but we actually have a lot of support from the community. Everyone is coming in to help out,” said Osmond.
Those who donate get to enter a draw for their choice of a pair of Oakley sunglasses from the pro shop or a Strider bike for tots.
“They are awesome little bikes for little boys and girls. They have tons of fun with them,” said Osmond.
