So far the dealership has set aside three used cars for donation, both from their stock and donated from the community, said Sheila Countryman-Bean, marketing and public relations director for Dwayne Lane.
The dealership is continuing to act as an intermediary for people who want to donate a vehicle to slide victims, and is contributing labor and parts to them before passing them on.
“One of the vehicles, we did $800 worth of work on it before giving it out,” Countryman-Bean said.
In addition, the dealership has loaned a vehicle to one customer who lost everything until she could make arrangements for a replacement, and has loaned a box truck to the Red Cross to carry supplies from Arlington to Darrington and a passenger van to transport rescue workers to the slide site.
To donate a vehicle, contact Dwayne Lane service manager Rich Filori at 360-435-2125 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Slide victims who need a vehicle can email email@example.com to make arrangements.
Chris Winters: 425-374-4165 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
