Representatives from the Cooperative Christian Ministry (CCM) showed appreciation to Todd Asher and Tim Short Chrysler of Middlesboro on Friday by presenting them with a certificate.
Ashley Witt said she began asking Asher for the use of a pick-up truck to assist in the transportation of goods for CCM because the organization does not have company vehicles. She said anytime they need a truck she can call Asher and he will help.
“It’s a big help,” said Witt. “If it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t be able to go and get the stuff we need.”
The truck is often used to transport clothes from storage to the CCM, pick up food for food drives and to pick up furniture that people have donated.
Witt said they usually provide a notice for when a truck is needed, but there have been several short notice calls. She said there has never been an issue with the dealership providing a truck.
On top of providing the truck, Witt said Asher has never asked or required them to put gas into the vehicle.
“We just want to help the community in any way we can,” said Asher. “If providing a vehicle helps them out then we’re more than happy to provide one to them anytime they need it.”
Witt said before Tim Short Chrysler came to Middlesboro, they had contacted other dealerships for the same reason. Nothing ever came to fruition.
