New Truck from O'Leary Buick GMC

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.

The Fredericton Anti-Poverty Organization (FAPO) announced today that it will receive a free used truck donated by Gerry O'Leary of O'Leary Buick GMC 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.

O'Leary Buick GMC in Fredericton donated a used
truck to FAPO after the organization lost its only vehicle
in a traffic accident in early July.

"The accident really put us in a bad spot," says Weston. "The insurance wasn't enough to buy a new vehicle and we couldn't afford to rent one either."

Weston says after 30 years working with the poor and needy in Fredericton it was one of the first times that FAPO had to ask the community for help. Click here to read more....
