Giving back to the community has always been something we believe in at Straub Nissan. Our dealership is honored to support a number of local charities and events that enrich the lives of those in our community. We pride ourselves on not only saying we care, but showing we care through our support of these organizations. Some of the local charities we support include:
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is the nation's largest nonprofit organization, and works to protect families from drunk driving and underage drinking. Founded by a mother whose daughter was killed by a drunk driver, the charity also supports drunk and drugged driving victims and survivors at no charge. Two in three people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime, but MADD is working diligently to change that statistic. Today, MADD has saved almost 330,000 lives and is constantly working hard to make a difference. Straub Automotive is proud to help support MADD in their mission to eliminate drunk driving, support the victims of this crime and prevent underage drinking. That's why we were honored to participate in MADD's Tie One On For Safety® awareness project this holiday season. To help celebrate the 30th anniversary of the designated driver, we handed out red ribbons to our customers to place in their vehicles as a visible reminder to always choose a non-drinking driver.
Breast Cancer Awareness
For the past four years, Straub Automotive has been raising money to help fight breast cancer and to make a difference in the lives of those affected by donating $100 for every vehicle sold during the month of October. The money that is raised is contributed to local community hospitals to help those affected by the disease. Contributing to our community is extremely important to us and we understand the importance of working together to make a difference. We plan to continue raising awareness by working together in the battle to fight breast cancer.
Soup Kitchen of Greater Wheeling's Gifts for Kidz
This holiday season, Straub Automotive helped brighten the holiday for many children in the area by distributing Christmas presents as part of the Soup Kitchen of Greater Wheeling's Gifts for Kidz program. Straub Automotive purchased gifts for local children who are part of the Gifts for Kidz program by using a portion of every oil change sold in the month of November. Bryan Fato, Straub Executive Manager, said, "We're very pleased to join the Wheeling Soup Kitchen's Gifts for Kidz program to raise money to purchase as many gifts as possible to brighten the Christmas of deserving children throughout the area. We also thank our loyal customers for helping us lend a hand to our friends and all the dedicated volunteers at the Wheeling Soup Kitchen who do so much for so many, especially during the holidays." During the holiday season, the Wheeling Soup Kitchen donates presents, new shoes, clothing and a winter coat to families with children in their program. Throughout the year, the nonprofit Soup Kitchen also provides warm meals and companionship to those in need.
