What a year we’ve had and the last 25 days has been amazing!

As we said when we kicked off the 25 Days of Giving program, Koons Automotive takes pride in giving back to the communities in which we are located. For the past fifty years that we have been in existence we always find ways to help where it makes the most sense.  This year we launched our “Koons 25 Days of giving” where we gave to 25 charities (well actually 29, but who’s counting), here is a list of all the groups we helped out:

Here is a link to the 25 Days of Giving Facebook Photo Album for this years efforts.

Giving anyone anything is always fun, and along the way we had to modify our plans and accommodate some of you who took us up on our challenge to match our donations, so that made this year’s giving even more fun.  Specifically, we added a donation to the Salvation Army who had some of their holiday donations stolen. We also had a few organizations reach out to us as they heard what we were doing and we were able to help them as well!  The kind words of support and notes of encouragement have been great and as a company we are certainly blessed to be able to help out like this.

We’re looking forward to giving more in next year, so stay tuned, and Happy 2014!
