Local dealership Straightline Chrysler donated a hefty sum to the Fort Saskatchewan Families First Society (FSFFS).
 
On Wednesday (October 18), a cheque for $6130 was presented to the local organization.
 
"We're grateful for the generosity of the businesses and the people in Fort Saskatchewan," explained Lorella Julien, director of human resources with FSFFS. "The donations we receive are extremely important, it takes a village to raise a child and to keep us going and those partnerships show it's important for everyone to be involved and we sure appreciate them."
 
The money will be used for family programming.
 
For Straightline Chrysler, $500 from every vehicle sold during the last week of September went towards the cause. $130 was also raised through a raffle.
