One of the worst situations anyone can be is the strike of a natural disaster like hurricanes. Usually, no one can estimate the extent of damage that result after the disaster. The damage can include lose of property and even lives. That is the time when the victims require urgent help. An example of such situations includes the recent Hurricane Harvey that caused massive damages in Texas and Louisiana leaving thousands of residents homeless. Several organizations came in to offer help both financially and materially to support the victims. One of these organizations was Rancho Motor Company that donated $2,550 to the American Red Cross to support the efforts in the hurricane-stricken Houston area.
The Company had launched a fundraiser over the weekend of Labor Day where it donated $50 for every vehicle sold during that period. Although the dealership already had a fixed amount that they pledged in support of the relief efforts, the generated $50 for each vehicle sold was an approach to publicize the cause. This was an opportunity for the community to also help the affected citizens. Additionally, the company included the links to Hurricane Harvey Relief on its Facebook page and website to attract more donations and support. John Wilkins; the President of Rancho Motor presented the $2,550 check to Yvette Baysinger; a representative of the American Red Cross.
Other Organizations That Benefited from the Dealership’s Generous Donations
The donation to the hurricane victims in Texas made by Rancho Motor Company was not the first time for them. It has also donated to various local charities in the past. These include Ft Irwin Army National Training Center; a sponsor of Summer Jam event that was held in July 2017. The event attracted families and friends to Army Field where they enjoyed a great day of fun with plenty of beverages and food, carnival rides, games, inflatable houses and water slides, and a concert featuring David Cook; an American idol winner. During the event, the attendees were only required to take with them lawn chairs and blankets as other essentials were gathered for.
Furthermore, the dealership has donated to the Desert Valley Hospital Scholarship and the Sunset Hills Children’s Foundation. For a child who has lost a loved one or a parent, life becomes meaningless, and they find as though their world has reached its end. However, the foundation, with the support of organizations like Rancho, is able to meet their educational needs. Victor Valley College Foundation, Happy Trails Children’s Foundation, Victorville Rotary Club, and Victor Valley Assistance League that sponsors various events like the recently held Kentucky Derby fundraiser have also received the dealership’s donation in the past. The company also donated to Lucerne Valley Lions Club Foundation during the 6th Annual High Desert Shooting Fun Fair in April 2017. Rancho motors donations provide enormous assistance to those in need.
