Rose City Ford has made a $25,000 donation to the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society.

The money will help build an infant nursery in the new Bill and Dot Muzzatti Child and Family Centre, which is under development.

“We are proud to be able to lend our support so they can continue to do great things,” said John Chisholm, owner of Rose City Ford. The nursery will be named after Chisholm’s daughters, Mila and Ava.

More than 600 local kids rely on the CAS for support and services.

“We are fortunate to receive ongoing support from generous people and businesses like the team at Rose City Ford and it ensures that we can continue to provide these children the best care possible,” Bill Bevan, the CEO of the local CAS, said in a statement on Thursday.

The WECAS recently got a $4.3 million budget boost from the province. Tight funds forced the agency to layoff 18 part-time case workers last month.
