CHRISTI CORPUS, Texas, September 3, 2020 / PRNewswire / – AutoNation, Inc. (NYSE: AN), AutoNation, America’s largest and most recognized auto dealer, has a special partnership with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Body of Christ at all eight local Body of Christ Shops. All of this is part of AutoNation’s Drive Pink (DRV PNK) initiative, which works with local and national charities to raise funds for cancer research, treatment, and other services.
With a donation program at all purchase terminals, customers can make donations to the charity by adding an amount from their credit card. 100% of the donation goes directly to the charity. Given the pandemic, Ronald McDonald House has reportedly had to suspend or change many of its planned fundraising drives David Wickwar, AutoNation Toyota Corpus Christi sales representative who leads the effort. “We are a very close community and have supported many local charities such as the Ronald McDonald House of Body of Christ and Driscoll Children’s Hospital with our saltwater fishing tournament and our Toy Drive Across America. When we heard at the Ronald McDonald House of the need to fund programs that keep families together when children were receiving serious medical attention, we immediately took action to help, “David said.
“AutoNation Corpus Christi has supported our families and missions for many years with hot meals and the ever-popular magical holiday celebrations with toys, mascots, crafts and entertainment,” he said Michelle Horine, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Body of Christ. “We’re really grateful that we were selected to benefit from AutoNation’s fundraiser this year when we need it most.”
AutoNation Market President Jeff Starch is proud of the leadership AutoNation plays in the local community. “DRV PNK is a very important part of our culture,” he said. “Customers and employees have come together for a common cause – to contribute to a world without cancer.”
