How We Gave Back at Our Toys for Tots Event in Chicago

February 3rd, 2020 by

Chevrolet strives to give back to people by manufacturing great new Chevy cars, and at Mike Anderson Chevrolet Chicago, we attempt to carry that message onward. Throughout the month of December, we helped spread joy through the city of Chicago with the help of our charitable donation to Toys for Tots.

How Our Chevrolet Dealers Gave Back

In December, we teamed up with Toys for Tots, a national charitable foundation that works to give gifts to children from underprivileged families. Set up through the United States Marine Corps Reserve, Toys for Tots was founded in 1947 by Major Bill Hendricks, and since the early days, it has helped give joy to children across the country, especially during the holiday season.

At Mike Anderson Chevrolet of Chicago, our dealers helped the Toys for Tots Foundation by matching every donation brought into our showroom. Our staff gathered up donations from you, and once collected, our dealers would make a one-to-one donation. If you donated 100 toys, our Chevy dealers near Oak Park would donate another 100. The event lasted through the entire month of December, and over the course of it all, we collected hundreds of toys for our local youth. No matter what time of year it is, we’re thrilled to help children throughout the Chicagoland area experience pure joy.

Here at Mike Anderson Chevrolet of Chicago, we’re serious about giving back to our local community and believe it makes what makes a dealership truly great. We’re more than just an auto retailer; we’re a powerful force for good in Chicago.
