We at O'Connor Chrysler believe it's important to support the community in which we live and do business. We have had so much support from the local community we want to give back.
Here are a few ways we have been able to give back in 2018...
$6500 donation to the BC Cancer Foundation. At the BC Cancer Foundation they believe that with your help BC CAN make a difference in the lives of all British Columbians. Did you know that one in two people in our province will face cancer in their lifetime? The BC Cancer Foundation is igniting the progress to break down cancer, piece by piece, in the labs and clinics.
We held the 1st Annual O'Connor Chrysler Car Show a $1000 donation was given to the Cyrus Centre in Chilliwack. The Cyrus Centre is a community-based response to community needs, working with the diverse communities to bring about creative solutions. They are dedicated to helping vulnerable and homeless youth. They offer resources, supplies and services 24/7/365.
We raised $2000 for the Starfish Pack in Chilliwack. What is the Starfish Pack? The program is simple. Backpacks are sent home each Friday, full of food for children and their families for the weekend during the school year. (Approximately 600 children in Chilliwack go to school hungry on Monday mornings. Currently, most students in need are provided with breakfast, recess snacks and lunch each day at school. Unfortunately, the lack of access to food does not end when the weekend arrives.)
We supported Bethel #20 - Abbotsford Chapter of Job's Daughters BC and their "Kiss Cancer Goodbye" event. in 2017 an estimated 26,300 Canadian women were diagnosed with breast cancer and 5000 died from it. Breast Cancer accounts for approximately 26% of new cases of cancer and 13% of all cancer deaths in Canadian women.
December 21st, we went a step further and we were able to donate $10,000 to the Chilliwack Children's Foundation. The Chilliwack Children's Foundation is a group based here in our community that supports children in need of access to any educational, medical, cultural or recreational service or program that, for economic reasons, the family or support system cannot afford. This is something we are extremely passionate about!
We also where able to give away another $10,000 that was split among 3 separate families just in time for Christmas!
Remember, at O'Connor Chrysler we know it's the little things that count and that's why "Everything we do is driven by you!"
