FAPO receives gift of truck from O'Leary Buick GMC in Fredericton
|Dan Weston, FAPO Coordinator, receives the keys|
to the truck from the Manager of O'Leary Buick GMC
on Hanwell Road in Fredericton.
Dan Weston, FAPO Coordinator, says the non-profit organization will take ownership of the vehicle Wednesday, August 14 at 3:30 pm at the company's Hanwell Road dealership.
The donation from O'Leary Buick GMC in Fredericton comes nearly six weeks after FAPO lost its only vehicle in a traffic accident. No one was hurt in the July 3rd collision, but the organization's 1998 half ton was a complete "write off", said Weston, who co-founded the organization in 1983.
