Fletch’s Looking to “Give a Kid a Chance,” Seeking Donations From the Public

A Petoskey Car dealership is hoping you will help them “Give a Kid a Chance” this month.

Fletch’s GMC Buick Audi is collecting different items to give to less fortunate kids in Northern Michigan.

Through the end of April they are looking for donations of non-perishable food, new clothes, school supplies and toiletries.

The goods will help stock two school pantries, The Northmen Den in Petoskey and Harbor Hut in Harbor Springs.

The donations will provide students an opportunity to get food and other basic necessities.

“Too many kids in our community are going to bed hungry, going to school hungry in the morning, and it’s sad that it happens but it’s happening right in our own backyard and we can be generous and give local and that’s what we are here to do,” Darla Smela, said.

If you are interested in donating, you can stop by Fletch’s during business hours.

They are also hosting a big donation event, by trying to fill a bus-full of goods on Saturday April, 28th.
