A splash of colour was added to the windows of dealerships at the Richmond Auto Mall, as part of an effort to make Christmas a little merrier for local families in need.

Some 23 windows were decorated by more than 200 volunteers from the community, said Gail Terry, general manager of the auto mall association.

And although she won’t know exactly how much this year’s efforts will bring in, last year’s Windows of Hope brought in a record-setting $20,000.

That money will be directed to the Richmond Christmas Fund, which hands out toys, grocery vouchers, and books to local families to help them celebrate the holiday season.
