Country Hill Carma
Throughout the year, we’re always looking for new ways to give back to the Merriam, Olathe, and greater Kansas City communities. Whether it’s supporting local schools and their sports teams or Kansas City MindDrive, or taking part in our annual Season of Giving, we just want to give back to the community that supports us.
For us, it’s all about reinforcing our company’s values as a family-run and locally-owned business and paying that forward. We always encourage all of our team members to let us know about local organizations and causes that they care about so that we can do everything we can to help.
MINDDRIVE’S mission is to inspire students to learn, expand their vision of the future, and to have a positive impact on urban workforce development. MINDDRIVE works with students in the urban core of Kansas City, and mentors them through the process of building electric cars out of old Karmann Ghia bodies. The program provides students with a sense of accomplishment and pride, and helps them build confidence and determination.
We are proud and excited to be supporting MINDDRIVE in their financial literacy classes by hosting Financial Peace University classes from Dave Ramsey and by raising awareness and program funding.
GREAT PLAINS SPCA
If you’ve been to Country Hill Motors, then you’ve probably met Bentley the Country Hill Car Dog. Bentley is very much part of our Country Hill family, and we know how important it is to take care of our furry friends, especially when they’re not able to take care of themselves. Great Plains SPCA is an important organization in Kanas City and one of the only No-Kill shelters in the city.
We are especially excited about supporting the 2014 HERO Funding Campaign. Country Hill Motors raised awareness to help Great Plains SPCA meet their funding goal, but we were also excited to donate a minivan equipped to transport pets, supplies, and other vital deliveries to help pets in need.
AIDS Walk Kansas City raises money to help support the AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City which serves over 5,700 men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS in the Kansas City Community. The AIDS Service Foundation supports all demographics and populations affected by this disease through education, prevention, treatment, and housing services.
AIDS Walk Kansas City is hosted every April in Theis park. To donate or join the Country Hill Motors walk team, click on the link below!
