We live here. We work here. We give here. The Dick Hannah Dealerships team is committed to supporting those who share this community and its resources with us. From donating raffle vehicles that raise thousands of dollars for the Children's Cancer Society, to giving a new car to a high school student who improves their grades, to planting a tree for every vehicle we sell, we're committed in supporting local families, education and the environment.
Dick Hannah Dealerships partners with the CCA by donating a car as a raffle prize to raise money during their annual Valentine's Day for CCA radiothon each February. This event promotes awareness and support to the CCA's award-winning programs and resources that bring joy and hope to seriously ill children and their families. Employee volunteers staff the phone bank to help the CCA with in incoming phone donations.
These organizations receive donations of cash, loaned vehicles or both:
