Jan. 6, 2013 - PRLog -- Auto Haus Volkswagen ( in Winnipeg, MB has recently made a $5,000 donation to the Christmas Cheer Board, a charity that benefits local families by providing food and gifts around the holiday season. Donations of toys, food, and money are accepted in several locations around the Winnipeg area. Auto Haus is proud to have supported the Christmas Cheer Board and the great work they do for families during the holidays.

The precursor to the Cheer Board was originally established by several Winnipeg area churches in 1919. The charity was created in order to provide Christmas Hampers and toys to the widows and children of soldiers lost in WWI.

The church groups continued to operate for several years before turning their attention to the many other families that needed assistance during the holiday season. As the charity expanded the churches began to work together to coordinate the growing project. In the mid-1940s, the churches formed one organization. The newly formed Christmas Cheer Board was then able to coordinate charitable activities to avoid duplications and to better serve the area.

The Cheer Board now provides assistance to local families that qualify for Employment Income Assistance in addition to many lower income working families. Over half of all the food and toys the Cheer Board distributes are donated by individuals and companies, and the rest is purchased by the charity. The Cheer Board is comprised of almost 5,000 volunteers, including school children and seniors. Volunteers make, pack, and deliver all donations.

Donations to the Christmas Cheer Board ( can either be made by mail or dropped off at the charity’s warehouse in Winnipeg, AB or at several other locations in the area.

Auto Haus VW will continue to give back to the community while providing affordable vehicles and service at their dealership, located at 660 Pembina Highway, in Winnipeg, MB. They can be contacted online via their website ( or by phone at (204) 284-7520 for any questions.
