Local business owner makes big donation to local hospitals
The owner of a Listowel business recently made a sizeable donation to two local hospitals.
Scott Davidson, the owner of Stop 23 Auto Sales, invited representatives from the Listowel Memorial and Palmerston District Hospital Foundations to the car dealership to receive what they thought was a $10,000 cheque. But on top of that cheque, Davidson revealed Stop 23 is pledging $200,000 over the next five years to be split by the foundations.
Davidson said because COVID-19 has made it impossible to do fundraising, he wanted to contribute what he felt was necessary right now.
“My thoughts were well, why don’t we just put this on autopilot? Make the pledge October 1st every year, issue the money, and that way it’s a goal that our team can work for, and we know how to budget for it every year now.”
