Pay it forward during our 2nd annual give back to kids event!

November 1st, 2019 by

The season of giving back is here!

And we are so excited to announce that we’re launching our second annual Give Back to Kids Event now through the end of December. If you remember last year, we were able to donate $50,000 to 5 local charities thanks to customers like YOU! Help us do the same this year.

For every new and used vehicle purchased, we’re donating $25 to on of these five charities. But the best part is, you get to pick which one! Yes, the display is back and so are the ping pong balls. Pick the charity that strikes a chord with you and drop the ping pong ball in the corresponding cylinder.

It’s been said before, but there really is no better time to buy a car. Help us donate up to $50,000 to the kiddos in our community.

What if I don’t need a new car? Can I still contribute?

Great question. As the weather gets colder, odds are your vehicle may need some service done. For every completed service, you will have the opportunity to round up to the nearest dollar–or whatever amount you feel compelled to give.

And now the burning question… Which charity will you choose? While some may be very familiar to you, we were excited to add some new non-profits this year!
