Car dealer is filling semi for Hurricane Katrina victims
PRESCOTT Auto dealer Tim Coury is aiding relief efforts for the hurricane victims in Louisiana by loading up a semi-trailer truck with clothing, food, bottled water and other items and delivering it to New Orleans.
"We are going to load up that semi as soon as we can get it full," said Guy Graham, general sales manager at Tim's Buick Pontiac GMC Toyota Hyundai Isuzu in Prescott. "We just need people to bring stuff in."
Graham said that the donations of non-perishable food and bottled water are crucial to the relief effort. People have donated a stroller, baby seat and clothing to the dealership.
He said Coury and Prescott attorney Chris Kottke will drive the 45-foot-long semi. Drill Tech Inc. of Chino Valley provided the vehicle.
Coury is accepting donations at the Hyundai dealership at 3250 Willow Creek Road and Hands On Healthcare at 720 N. Montezuma St., Suite A, Prescott.
