 Yark Automotive Group Dealers Collect Cans for Cars in November 

Yark Automotive Group in Toledo, Ohio and Yark Chevrolet in Whitehouse, Ohio are putting a spin on collecting food for the needy this holiday season with CANS FOR CARS. 

In partnership with 95.7 the Mix and Jeep Federal Credit Union, customers and guests may drop off cans of non-perishable food items at any Yark Family of Dealerships Sales or Service locations and take $5 per can (up to $250) off the purchase of a new or preowned vehicle or choose to take $5 (total) toward any next service visit. The more cans you bring, the more you save. 
On November 15th thru Nov 21st the Jeep Federal Credit Union will be collecting Cans at its 2 locations in conjunction with Yark Automotive Group for the Big Game Food Drive. Featuring Yark Dodge Ram Trucks at each location, credit union members and the public are invited to bring in cans to show their support for either the Michigan Wolverine’s or the Ohio State Buckeyes. Place your cans in the truck that shows your support for your team and see who wins on the Big Game Day, November 24th. The same trucks will also be at the Yark Dodge location on 11/17 and 11/23-24. 

Throughout November, Yark Automotive Group, the Mix and the Jeep Federal Credit Union will help the needy in our community with the CANS FOR CARS project. 

All cans will go to local foodbanks the Toledo Northwestern Ohio Foodbank and the Toledo Seagate Foodbank. 

Cans for Cars is part of the Yark Community Partner Project Mission of ‘being a good corporate citizen by creating lasting partnerships with organizations dedicated to uplifting the community in which we live.’ More information on the Yark Community Partner Project may be found at
