Mazda will make a charitable donation for each new Mazda vehicle sold this Holiday Season. Last years “DRIVE FOR GOOD” event was wonderful. Mazda had the opportunity to donate over $2,700,000 to charitable institutions like Philadelphia Children’s Hospital, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, American Red Cross and the American Heart Association; touching lives where and when they need it most. Since money is not always the answer, Mazda also donated work time time.
This year Mazda has rolled up it’s sleeves and committed itself to increase the amount donated for each new Mazda by an additional 50%. “We are excited to have increased the donation amount for the 2014 Mazda Drive for Good charity event,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. “Mazda donated more than $2.7 million last year and while we know the charity partners were appreciative, we always want to do more. However, no Mazda charity event would be complete without rolling up our sleeves and lending a helping hand by donating an hour of charitable service for every test drive.”
The Mazda Drive for Good event will run from November 21, 2014 through January 2, 2015. In addition, Mazda Dealer Marketing Groups around the nation also have the opportunity to select a local charity that enables new Mazda owners to select a charity option closer to home.
