Vision Auto Group gives children toys that it collected in a holiday drive

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Vision Auto Group held an event on Friday to give out gifts that it raised during its 17th annual toy drive. Children got to sit on Santa’s lap, enjoy milk and cookies, and chose a toy to take home at the vacant Rent-a-Center on Ridge Road in Irondequoit.

Children and pediatric patients from over 400 families benefited from the toy drive. Vision Group staff, Rochester General Hospital staff, radio personalities, and local law enforcement helped with Friday’s event.

“There is nothing more rewarding that giving back to the communities we are a part of,” Mike Sacco, President of Vision Automotive Group says. “It is a priority within our company and we are honored to be able to bring this event back in person after a two year hiatus.”

All ten area Vision dealerships participated in the toy drive. Since 2015, Vision has provided more than $120,000 worth of toys to children, including those under the care of the Rochester General Pediatric Associates.
