Have you made a nomination for the “Giveaway For Good”? The giveaway is an initiative of the WLR Automotive Group, who is celebrating twenty-five years of service in the central Maryland/York County PA region. As a part of that celebration, and to give thanks back to the community who have supported the company, its owners have opened up nominations for charitable organizations and nonprofits to win grants of $5000 next January. The nomination process was opened up in mid-November, and anyone can continue to nominate groups through 14 December. Once the nomination process closes (14 December at midnight), the public will vote on the five organizations that they would like to see get a $5000 award from WLR. As of this post, about 25 organizations are up, and your organization certainly can nominate itself.
WLR Automotive (‘Wash, Luke, and Repair’) has been a keen practitioner of corporate philanthropy: “Since 1987, the company has operated 16 vehicle maintenance, repair, and car wash facilities throughout Maryland and Pennsylvania. Since its inception, WLR has adopted a philosophy of giving and donates significantly each year to local groups.”
The nomination and voting processes are really easy thanks to the well-designed and easily-navigable website. Please get your nomination in and/or send this story to colleagues and peers whose organizations could use an extra $5000 to continue their good work in 2013!
