#DealershipsGivingBack: Stevenson-Hendrick Toyota recently contributed $11,500 to the Carolina Museum of the Marine and Civic Institute to help the campaign to build a 40,000 square foot museum and institute honoring Carolina Marines and Sailors.
“We appreciate the auto dealers in Onslow County who each year participate in a month-long event, raising funds for us and for Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation,” says Museum executive director Ashley Danielson. “This year, Stevenson-Hendrick applied on our behalf for a Toyota matching grant, which added $10,000 to their total.”
According to the dealership, the Toyota Matching Grant program helps dealers like the one in Jacksonville leverage charitable giving.
“We are proud to be able to strengthen our support of our community’s nonprofits,” says Stevenson-Hendrick general manager, George Popajohn. “Helping to build a testament to Carolina Marines and Sailors while building civic engagement is a natural fit for us.”
Staff says several other dealerships were also involved in an event to raise money, including Sanders Ford, National Dodge, Marine Chevrolet, Team Chevrolet, Stevenson Kia, and Capital Hyundai. In total, the dealerships raised more than $80,000 for the Carolina Museum of the Marine and Civic Institute and Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation.
