Jeep Night Returns

published July 2017
The time is almost here to start up Jeep
Night powered by Burns Motors.
We had a quick recess for the months
of May, June, and July but coming up in
August we will be back to our regularly
scheduled Jeep Night, every second
Thursday of the month.
Jeep Night is
a community relations event held once
a month as an opportunity for all Jeep
owners to meet and hang out.
Although Jeep Night was put on a
brief hold, that didn't stop our Jeepers
from getting together this summer break
to give back to the community.
the latter part of April Edinburg Gospel
Church, in conjunction with Jeep Clubs
and Jeep owners, gathered in a colonia
in Edinburg and put together an Easter
barbecue for community members.
This Edinburg colonia has become
a familiar place to hold community
events including Christmas Toy Drives,
Thanksgiving Dinners, and much more.
This has been done by a community of
Jeepers and Jeep clubs who take pride
in their desire to give back, share their
blessings, and spreading the love of God.
This band of Jeepers, also known
as "Jeeps for Jesus", are eager every
month to continue these thoughtful contributions.
Next Jeep Night will be held Thursday
August 10th at Sofies 'SS' Saloon in
South McAllen. The night will start off
at 7pm. Burns Motors will be providing
food for the evening.
August is back to
school for the majority of our children.
Edinburg Gospel Church and member of
the Jeep community would like to hold
a Back to School drive at this month's
Jeep Night to help ease the burden of
back to school shopping for the families
at our colonia in Edinburg.
Any and all school supplies are welcome
considering we have children of
all ages that we will be donating to.
Thank you all in advance. Any little bit
goes a long way.
