46 FRIDAY, JANUARY 4- MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013 CAPE LIFE Cape Gazette Presto./Cambridge Auto Body helps Hurricane Sandy victims During the month of Novem- ber, Preston Auto Body and Cambridge Auto Body made a commitment to assist the victims of Hurricane Sandy on Delmarva by donating 2 percent of their re- pair orders to the American Red Gross, which provides immedi- ate emergency assistance in times of disasters. John Culp, community execu- tive for the Lower Shore Chapter of the American Red Cross, said he and his team truly appreciate the SUlort and commitment the local Red Cross receives from those in the community who can and do make a difference. At the local level, the Ameri- can Red Gross Delmarva Region supported 25 shelters, housing 1,878 people during the peak of the storm. The Red Cross pro- vided more than 10,000 meals and handed out cleanup kits to local residents. "When we are faced with events like Sandy, you cannot budget for that. The pri- mary concern is to provide im- mediate help and materials to those in need. After relief is pro- vided, that is when we address the concern of how we will fund the event," said Culp. Preston Auto Body and Cam- bridge Auto Body set a goal to raise $5,000 and on Dec. 10, Brian Grimm, Dave Wilson Sr., David Wilson Jr. and Diana Vincent, all of the Preston Automotive Group, were able to present Culp with a check for $5,040 for the lo- cal chapter. "The dedication and constant comfort provided to those in need make the Red Cross such an invaluable mem- ber of our community, and the Preston Group is pleased to help them continue their mission," said Wilson St., president of Pre- ston Automotive Group. The Preston Group will con- tinue to have donation canisters in the service departments for anyone who would like to make a donation. Donations can also be sent to the Red Cross Lower Shore Chapter at PO Box 3714, Salisbury, MD 21801. The Red Cross is a charitable organization, not a government agency, and it depends on volun- teers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information, go to www.redcross.org. Preston Automotive Group and owner Dave Wilson have been very active in the commu- nity for nearly three decades.
