WATCH: Christmas comes early in the form of a new ride

Lucky resident wins vehicle from Cariboo Chevrolet

With this summer’s massive wildfires and evacuations, it’s been a tough year in the Cariboo, and many families are still getting back on their feet.

The Cariboo Chevrolet team wanted to help.

General sales manager Doug Peters asked the community to share the story of a deserving individual or family who would truly benefit from the gift of a van.

“It’s been a difficult year,” Peters reflects. “With the fires and evacuations and now coming into the holiday season, some people are not in the best place, and we want to do what we can to help with that.”

Three residents were shortlisted as deserving the new vehicle.
