15th Annual Holiday Donation Drive November 21st-December 22nd, 2022

November 21st-December 22nd: Happy holidays from our families to yours! This holiday season, please consider supporting us in our annual holiday giving efforts. For the past 15 years we've donated to different local schools and organizations to help put a smile on the faces of our local kids in need. Whether it's donations of wish list gift items or most needed personal items, we know the importance of giving back to our local community, especially during the holidays.

This year, we will be supporting The House of the Good Shepherd and Haven of Hope Farm and Residence by donating most needed items and wish list items to this integral program in our community that supports children in foster care, and homeless women and children, respectively. Your donation of toys, books, activities, or personal items, brings joy and hope to the babies, children, and women in our area during the holidays. We have drop boxes & wish lists located in showrooms in all of our 8 locations, and posted on our websites. Donations are accepted during business hours. We hope you can experience the joy in paying it forward and help these kids in need have a great holiday! From our families to yours, thank you, and happy holidays!

Pet Food Drive

Every summer, Steet Toyota of Johnstown collects money throughout our store to get pet food, toys, blankets, and treats for all of the animals in our local pet shelters in Johnstown! In the past, we've donated to the Johnstown Pet Shelter and the Fulton County ASPCA. We love getting to give back to the animals who aren't able to find homes yet, and we love even more playing with them when we get there!
