Mazda Drive For Good Going on Now

Mazda Drive For Good

During the holiday season, most people feel more generous, and that includes Mazda. Mazda is once again bringing back its popular Mazda Drive For Good charity event. Now through January 2, 2015, Mazda will donate $150 for every new Mazda sold or leased.

Mazda is even taking it a step further, and will volunteer one hour of service for every test drive. Those service hours will be fulfilled by Mazda employees, dealers, and business partners in 2015.

“We are excited to have increased the donation amount for the 2014 Mazda Drive for Good charity event,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO, in a statement. “Mazda donated more than $2.7 million last year and while we know the charity partners were appreciative, we always want to do more. However, no Mazda charity event would be complete without rolling up our sleeves and lending a helping hand by donating an hour of charitable service for every test drive.”

Customers will get to choose among four national organizations for the $150 donation: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, American Red Cross, American Heart Association, and the Mazda Foundation. In addition, Mazda gave regional dealerships the chance to choose a local charity. If you lease or purchase a new Mazda from Wantagh Mazda, you can add Autism Speaks to the list of charitable options.

Mazda Donates $500,000 to American Red Cross

Mazda recently donated $500,000 to the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP). All made possible by the Mazda Drive for GoodTM program.

Mazda has supported the Red Cross before when disaster struck. Now, Mazda is the first auto maker to provide the Red Cross with everyday operation funding.

The Mazda Drive for Good campaign consisted of $100 donation for each new Mazda sale around the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s holidays to the customers’ chosen non-profits. In addition, Mazda employees volunteered for one hour in their respective communities for each test drive taken.

“Mazda is honored to not only partner with the American Red Cross, but to also be an official member of its Annual Disaster Giving Program,” said Jim O’Sullivan, CEO and president of Mazda North American Operations (MNAO).

“Our Mazda Drive for Good program has enabled all of us at Mazda to focus on giving back to our local communities and our nation as a whole, so it was a natural fit for us to partner with a great organization like American Red Cross.”

When you purchase a Mazda, you get more than a top-notch vehicle. You become a member of a caring family that works hard to make a difference not only in the world, but also in our local community. Join the Mazda family at Wantagh Mazda today!
