EDINBURG – Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV and Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) have partnered during this holiday season to raise awareness and funds for Boys & Girls Clubs of Edinburg RGV.
Mazda’s annual Mazda Drive for Good winter event is a national fundraising and volunteer campaign which has partnered with four national nonprofits and 42 local nonprofits to help give to those in need during this holiday season.
"Mazda Drive for Good is our unique way of supporting local and national charity organizations. By donating money and giving what's most important - our time, we are able to make a difference in the lives of those around us. It's our way of ensuring that vehicle test drives and sales not only benefit us as a company, but all the local communities our dealerships are proud to be a part of. At Mazda, we truly believe that Driving Matters most when you're driving for good." - Robert Davis, SVP, U.S. Operations, Mazda North American Operations
Mazda customers will continue to direct the $150 donation for the purchase or lease of a new Mazda to one of four national nonprofits or one or more local nonprofit options specific to their area. Mazda will also continue to pledge one hour of service for every test drive taken during the Mazda Drive for Good event time. Giving Mazda customers a local nonprofit option helps bring Mazda’s philanthropy efforts to the local communities.
"This investment is going to make a huge difference in the lives of the children we serve," said Sabrina Walker Hernandez, Chief Executive Officer for the Club. We are honored to have been chosen by Mazda and this gift ensures that we continue to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who need us the most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and influential citizens."
The Mazda Drive for Good® program launched in 2013 and further established Mazda’s commitment to charitable service with a pledge to its customers and the communities in which it does business. Responsible for donating more than $13 million and pledging more than 195,000 charitable service hours over the past two years, Mazda Drive for Good continues to provide monetary donations and community service throughout the year.
