Pohanka Becomes Major Donation Drop Off For Toys For Tots

Toys For Tots

You see the crimson “Toys For Tots” signs all over during the holiday season imploring you to donate toys to children in need. Pohanka however, in their usual generous efforts to raise awareness for charitable causes, took the “Toys For Tots” Initiative one step further this holiday season.

Any customer who was to donate a toy to one of the “Toys For Tots” bins, located in every Pohanka showroom and service department, would receive a $10 discount on any service. This not only gave initiative for every car owner to donate a toy but also implored them to bring their vehicle in for a discounted service visit and inspection before the harsh winter weather was to hit the eastern shore.

Pohanka donates to “Toys For Tots” every year and is proud to be a recognized and major donation drop off location for anyone willing to give to the cause regardless of whether they are in the market for a vehicle or not. It is giving acts like this that make Pohanka stand out amongst their competition as a top quality car dealership and also a kind, caring and giving organization of Wicomico County.

“We are always proud to help out when we can especially around the Holidays season when there are so many who could use our help” Says Paul Eaton COO of Pohanka of Salisbury Automotive Group and one of the proud leaders of Pohanka’s charitable group “Pohanka Pays It Forward.”

Pohanka Caught Doing Good In The Community

Anyone who has heard of the Pohanka name knows not only of the sublime customer service they provide but also of their extensive community involvement. Through their “Pohanka Pays It Forward” campaign Pohanka of Salisbury has managed to donate over $1,000,000 to local charities and nonprofit organizations. Pohanka constantly looks for way to be active in the community and help those in need.

 

Though Pohanka largely participates in community events they sometimes take a quirkier approach when looking for ways to reach out to local community members. This holiday season Pohanka of Salisbury is partnering with Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan and Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis to bring some joy to unsuspecting drivers.

 

Recently drivers in Salisbury and Wicomico county were personally pulled over by either Lewis or Duncan for a minor violation. The drivers were given a warning… as well as a $100 bill, compliments of Pohanka Automotive. The idea behind this initiative came from  Pohanka’s combined want to spread joy to local community members during the holiday season and to show locals that our police force not just upholds the law but also serves to benefit the community.

 

“We believe it’s important to support and cooperate with local enforcement, and we do our part to help create good relationships between members of the public and our police officers” Says Conrad Morgan Marketing Director at Pohanka of Salisbury.

 

Pohanka is also collecting “Toys For Tots” donations in each of their six showrooms from now until the 23rd of December. Anyone who wishes to donate will receive a free car wash with the donation of a new, unwrapped toy.  Paying forward and empowering the community is the Pohanka way.
