Every quarter, Earnhardt Auto Centers employees have the opportunity to make a difference by donating a portion of their paychecks to a chosen charity. In the first quarter of 2024, their generous contributions benefitted Hospice of the Valley.

Services from Hospice of the Valley include assistance with senior placement. This no-cost service provides referrals to group homes, assisted living and nursing homes pre-screened by Hospice of the Valley. The organization also offers programs to honor veterans, provide grief support and educate the community. The 11th Hour Companion program provides specially trained volunteers to be at an individual’s bedside for end-of-life care if their family can’t be there.

Earnhardt team members are also encouraged to spend time serving in the community. Events have included the 2nd Chance Bike Drive, which benefits St. Vincent de Paul. In addition to collecting gently used bicycles at Earnhardt dealerships, employees donated their time to refurbish the bicycles.
