Drop Off Donations at Frank Ancona Honda for Coats for Kids

For the third year in a row, we’re happy to announce that we are participating in Coats for Kids, a campaign which provides school children with coats and warm wear for school during the cold winter months. Anyone who wants to participate can drop off their coats at Frank Ancona Honda located at 1000 North Rogers Road in Olathe, Kan. The cutoff date for this year is Dec. 7, 2013, but the campaign will run throughout all of 2014 in order to prepare for next winter.

This is especially important for kids, as it is easier to attend, focus and participate in the educational process when nobody has to worry about something as simple as staying warm. Even better, Coats for Kids is designed to assist the health and educational needs of economically disadvantaged families who need the help the most.

This is a low impact means to make a difference; most families with children likely have coats that they have outgrown, and can probably find one that would be suitable for donation.

#MyJourney Facebook Contest Winner Announced!

After much anticipation, we’re finally announcing the winner of our Honda #MyJourney Facebook contest! Facebook fan Melinda Lee’s entry was creative, witty and engaging enough to win her the $100 Visa gift card! Congratulations, Melinda!

Read her submission below:

“If I could travel 100,000 miles in my Honda I would take Santa Claus with me, because he needs a reliable piece of transportation to travel around the world. I would make sure I visited all the good boys & girls because they deserve nice Christmas gifts. And I couldn’t miss seeing Las Vegas because what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? I would also want to attend the World Series because I have never been to a Major League Baseball game before.”

When we launched the contest in September, we asked Facebook fans to fill-in-the-blanks with their Honda story. We received tons of fantastic entries and loved reading all of them. Thank you to everyone for playing!

Missed your chance to win the gift card? Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter page, because we’ll be launching even more contests soon, along with some great deals!
