For each new car purchase, Alexandria Motors will donate $20 toward the Toy Drive. Toys will be purchased throughout the month, and used to fill the truck bed of a Chevy Silverado on the dealership show floor before they are distributed. The dealership expects to donate over $2,000 in toys thanks to new car purchases.

In the past, Alexandria Motors has worked with the Alexandria Area Jaycees to distribute the proceeds of this Toy Drive. This year, half of the toys will also be allocated to the Runestone Detachment 1409, Marine Corps League's project Toys for Kids. Comprised of former and active area Marines and FMS Corpsmen, this organization will distribute the toys to children age 15 and under in the Alexandria area.

Raising funds for toys for area children is not the only way Alexandria Motors is giving back to the community. This month will also feature the Test Drive for a Turkey promotion. Past customers will be receiving an invitation to test drive a new vehicle, and receive a gift card to a local grocery store in appreciation for their past business. These are just a couple community incentives sponsored by the dealership.

Alexandria Motors is located at 3710 Hwy 29 South in Alexandria and offers a wide selection of new and used Chevrolet, Cadillac and Mazda vehicles, as well as maintenance and repair services.

For more information on the Toy Drive or Test Drive for a Turkey promotion, interested parties may visit the Alexandria Motors website at or call the dealership directly at 320-762-2114.
