While you’re busy planning a Thanksgiving meal, making a holiday gift list, and planning get-togethers with family and loved ones, please set some time aside to drop off a new, unwrapped toy or two for children ages 0-12 at any Jim Shorkey location in North Huntingdon or Uniontown as part of the US Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program. We are accepting donations until December 15. We are hoping to make this year’s haul even more successful than last year’s! Thanks so much for your generosity this season, and we look forward to making a child’s Christmas a little brighter this year!

If Batman drives the Batmobile and Spiderman drives the Spider-Mobile, then what does Superman drive? His cape? Enter Chrysler when they unveiled a special Ram Power Wagon last summer. Tied in to the premier of Man of Steel, the unique truck packed a blueish-grey vinyl wrap (textured like Superman’s outfit), gloss-black accents, anodized red trim, 17-inch alloys, and an interior decked out with Superman logos.
It was a nice tribute to the super-est of superheros, but Ram only made the one, and it wasn’t offered for sale. That is, at least, until now. With the movie’s debut now long behind us, the one-off Power Wagon is being auctioned off to benefit LA Family Housing, a charity dedicated to helping disadvantaged families in Southern California.
The online auction page places the donated vehicle’s value at $112,674, but bidding currently stands at $47,500 with 3 days remaining. Head on over to Charity Buzz to help out a worthwhile cause and give yourself the chance to get your hands on a one-of-a-kind vehicle and piece of cinematic history.
