Jeepers Having Fun!

There is a lot to be thankful for all year round and the month of November is a special time when we can do just that.

There was a change in scheduling this time around making Jeep Night fall on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Jeepers gathered at Sofie's 'SS' Saloon for this very special Jeep Night, dedicated to giving back to the community. In the spirit of the season attendees were encouraged to bring canned goods for donation. To make things more interesting it was decided that the Jeep Club who made the largest donation would be receiving a "Jeep Night Food Drive" award.

The turnout was phenomenal and our Jeepers went above and beyond. Jeeps were filled to the brim with canned goods ready to be donated. Everyone did an outstanding job and should be so proud to be a part of this Jeep Community.

Texas Jeep Crawlers were the winners of the "Jeep Night Food Drive" award for the largest bounty of canned goods.

Pastor Mike from LOGOS Community Church joined us that evening to give us more information on the distribution of our contributions. All canned goods will be going to a colonia in Edinburg, consisting of 85 families, 20 of which are single parent households, and 112 children. The distribution took place on November 23rd with Pastor Mike, LOGOS Community Church members, Jeepers, and the Edinburg Assistant Chief of Police in attendance.

Jeep Night powered by Burns Motors is typically held on the second Thursday of each month, unless changes are made beforehand. Next month's Jeep Night will be held December 8 at Sofie's 'SS' Saloon, located at 6801 S 10th St in McAllen, Texas.

We will be holding a "Toy Drive" which will be dedicated to collecting toys for the children of the same colonia in Edinburg. An award will be give to the Jeep Club with the most bountiful contribution.
