Irwin Automotive Supports Local Community with 100 Turkeys for the Holidays

LACONIA — Irwin Automotive supports the Lakes Region community by giving turkeys to families in need for their Holiday feasts. With a turkey on the table families are able to maintain a holiday tradition in any situation. The Irwin team has been providing turkeys to St Vincent De Paul in Laconia for the past three years and this year donated 100 turkeys.

St. Vincent De Paul provides material assistance to those in need in the Lakes Region by establishing programs with organizations, which provide temporary relief and helpful solutions for those in need. Enabling families to share a meal with their families allows for a special celebration, a time of happiness, a gratefulness that frees them from their troubles. Irwin Automotive sees the importance in helping the less fortunate all year round, but especially around the holidays when family and togetherness is so important and magical.
