Our entire team here at Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is dedicated to helping out and giving back to our neighbors throughout the Chicago, Skokie, Park Ridge, and Forest Park areas. From our sales staff on the showroom floor to the folks in the service center, we’re all grateful to be a part of this great community.
One way in which we like to show our appreciation is by getting involved and providing support whenever and wherever we can. In 2018 alone, we were able to donate $89,500 to a variety of charities. Below are a few examples of the types of organizations we’re proud to support.
Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation
Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a national organization involved in the fight to eradicate pediatric cancer. One of Bear Necessities’ signature programs is the Bear Hug. A Bear Hug provides a child who is battling cancer with an experience that’s specifically tailored to his or her interests.
Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is proud to be a recipient of the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s William J. Casey Hope Award. Every year, this award is presented to a member of the community who has aided Bear Necessities in doing away with pediatric cancer and offering hope and support to those affected by the disease.
The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation
The Chicago Police Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that was established in 2004. The Foundation honors the Chicago area’s fallen heroes by providing aid to their families.
The Illinois Fire Safety Alliance
As a nonprofit organization, the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance promotes fire safety and burn prevention. They’re also dedicated to providing support to burn survivors. Some of the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance’s beneficial programs include the Smoke Alarm Installation Program and Camp “I Am Me.” Camp “I Am Me” is a camp that takes place over the period of a week where children between the ages of 8 and 16 with burn injuries have an opportunity to get together for one memorable experience.
Susan G. Komen
Susan G. Komen helps in the fight against breast cancer through research, community health, global outreach, and public policy initiatives. This organization is a huge advocate for research funding as well as providing access to affordable breast health and cancer care services. They also work to spread accurate information and offer volunteer opportunities where they’re needed the most.
If you would also like to get involved by showing your support to any of these great causes, feel free to contact them today. They’ll be happy to hear from you.
As for our Marino Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram family, we’ll proudly continue giving back to Chicago, Skokie, Park Ridge, and Forest Park whenever possible.
