VIP store on upper Union Ave. collecting spare change for Lily & Allyssa funds - 134

LACONIA — Calling it the "Stop by and donate the spare change in your console" campaign, the VIP Tires & Service store at 1033 Union Avenue is collecting donations to both Lilyanna Johnson Memorial Fund and the Allyssa Minor Benefit Fund through the end of May.
Tire and Service Manager Dennis Ackley says that every penny that is dropped off will go directly the accounts at Franklin Savings Bank that have been set up in the aftermath of the tragic accident that occurred on Messer Street on April 19 involving the two 14-year-old girls.
"I am extremely happy with how this community has come together for these famliies," said Ackley, adding that he plans to host a car wash for the cause later this month as well. Details will be announced as soon as the date is set.
