On April 5th, First City Cars and Trucks made a donation to help support the students of Nute High School who will be traveling to Ecuador over spring break. These students will be spending three days providing volunteer service to a smal community in the Amazon Basin and learning about what it truly means to be a global citizen. This donation helped the students raise funds to offset the cost of this once in a lifetime experience.

At First City Cars and Trucks we take pride in giving back to our community. Each year we make it our mission to make donations throughout the year!

In January 2017, we decided to start the year off right by offering to donate to our customer's favorite charity in their name when they purchased a vehicle from us! 
Everyone who participated selected the Cocheco Valley Humane Society. 
These donations helped the Cocheco Valley Humane Society to continue their mission of providing the best quality care and haven to animals of need.
Each year more than 1,500 cats, dogs and small animals are brought to CVHS.

Last October, the faculty, students and parents of the Gonic School were devastated by the news of the passing of Harrison Nadeau. Harrison was not only a student at Gonic School, but he was also one of the Nadeau Quadruplets in the first grade. The loss of Harrison has been felt across the Gonic Community. To honor Harrison, the Gonic PTA has decided to install a granite bench engraved with his name and a quote in front of the school. In order to do this the Gonic PTA will need to raise nearly $4,000 to finalize the project and is seeking donations to help with the cost. First City Cars and Trucks has made a donation to help with the expenses but we are asking for your help. If you or anyone you know may be interested in assisting with the efforts, a tax deductible donation can be mailed to
