Earnhardt currently participates in the “Recycle A Bicycle” program at its individual dealerships through September 30. Bring a new or gently used bicycle to any Earnhardt dealership, and it will be refurbished and given to a foster child during the upcoming holiday season. Earnhardt teamed up with ABC15 and the Arizona Association for Foster and Adoptive Parents for this program.
At Earnhardt, individual employees are also encouraged to help those in need. Through the Earnhardt H.E.A.R.T. program, participating employees choose to have specific dollar amounts deducted from each paycheck. Funds are donated to different organizations each month. Past recipients include Childhelp, a national non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of child abuse; the Arizona Animal Welfare League, one of Arizona’s oldest and largest no-kill shelters; and Let There Be Sight, a group that helps provide corneal transplants to underprivileged individuals.
Let There Be Sight was started by Kevin Murphy, the son of the general manager of the Earnhardt Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram dealership in Gilbert. Let There Be Sight teamed with the Donor Network of Arizona to help bring affordable vision surgery to vision impaired individuals.
Individual stores also participate in events to help their local communities. In February, Earnhardt Ford and the Phoenix Animal Care Coalition hosted a pet adoption event. The day showcased dogs, cats and other family friendly animals from more than 30 different animal rescue groups. All animals were spayed or neutered, vaccinated and evaluated for behavior issues. This was the sixth event hosted by these organizations, and previous events had resulted in nearly 250 animal adoptions.
When you buy a car from Earnhardt Auto Centers, you support a company that believes in giving back to its community!
