Conicelli and Cradles to Crayons join forces for The Great Green Spring Clean and Drive Event

Donate new or gently used items needed by homeless or low income children this Saturday, April 20, at the Conicelli Toyota Service showroom and also test drive our full assortment of full electric, hybrid gas-electric, and natural gas vehicles.
Conicelli Autoplex of Conshohocken, PA, has joined with Cradles to Crayons to sponsor a special event to gather donations for homeless and low income children in the region.

Saturday, April 20, 2013 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., at the Toyota Service showroom at 1200 Ridge Pike, you can drop off your donations and also test drive the GREEN vehicles that Conicelli offers -- electric, hybrid, and natural gas vehicles.

Here you can drop off your donations and then test drive the many GREEN vehicles that Conicelli offers, including such vehicles as the Toyota Prius, the Nissan Leaf, and the Honda Civic Hybrid. It's a family-friendly event where, after you drop off your donation, you can spend a fine spring afternoon inspecting, comparing, and test-driving the greenest group of varied vehicles to be found in the Philadelphia area.

Kids grow up fast. Reuse, Repurpose, and Recycle their nearly new items when they do! Join us in helping homeless or low income children from 0-12 years get essential items. There is a donation box in each Conicelli showroom and donations will be accepted through May 1, 2013. Receipts will be available at the reception desks.
