John Kot, left, is no stranger to giving money to charities in Kelowna.

Kot Auto Group had so much success with its pay-it-forward campaign last year that it decided to do it again.

Just like last year, the bosses announced at the Christmas Party that each employee was going to receive a $500 voucher to donate to a charity of their choice.

Since there are 80 employees in the organization, that means $40,000 is going to be going to charity this holiday season.

“The response was overwhelming last year, and the individual stories from the employees about why they picked the charities has been our favourite,” Kot Auto Group operations co-ordinator Jessica Vallee said in a press release. “Some of these organizations have touched and affected some of them very personally, and it’s exciting to be able to watch them all give back.”

Just a few of the charities that have received money this month are JoeAnna’s House, Kelowna’s Woman’s Shelter, Canucks Place Children’s Hospice, Canadian Red Cross Fund, BC Cancer Foundation and MS Society Canada.
