Holzhauer donation benefits military

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Dan Winchell, owner of Holzhauer Motors, recently presented David Rogers, Director of Iowa ESGR Inc., with a check for $1,354 for his organization. The funds came from free-will donations at a recent lunch and from a portion of vehicle sales at a recent 3-day sale at Holzhauer's.

David B. Rogers, the Director of the Iowa branch of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, Inc., was at the Holzhauer South location in Cherokee last week to receive a nice donation from Dan Winchell, owner of Holzhauer Motors.

Holzhauer's recently provided lunch for customers with the cost for those partaking in a free will donation to go to troops in the Armed Services. Holzhauer's also had a three-day sales event, and pledged that a percentage of the money received from sales during that event would also go to the troops.

Leo Klotz of Cherokee, who is Ombudsman for ESGR, told Winchell about the organization, and he decided that all of the funds raised from the two events would go to ESGR to support their cause.

On Thursday, Winchell presented Rogers with a check for $1,354, the money raised from the two events, and Rogers said that the money would go for providing troops with phone cards to allow them to call home, and for postage for packages they want to send.

With the Christmas season coming up quickly, both gifts will be appreciated by the servicemen and women who receive them.
