 Worthington, April 26, 2016 – Jack Maxton Chevrolet is partnering with the Olentangy Braves Little League in Worthington.  Jack Maxton Chevrolet has joined forces with the national Chevrolet Youth Baseball program to provide new equipment, a monetary contribution, invitations to FREE instructional clinics, and an opportunity for community members to earn additional donations for their league via a Test Drive fundraiser.

“Playing the game of baseball helps kids develop skills like leadership, cooperation and sportsmanship while bringing families and communities together to show their support. Jack Maxton Chevrolet and Chevrolet Youth Baseball are proud to participate in a sport that brings so many smiles to kids and families in Worthington.” said Heather Todd, Marketing Director for Jack Maxton Chevrolet. “Chevrolet believes that in play, there are possibilities and supports the spirit of teamwork that baseball instills in its players.”

2016 marks Chevrolet’s Youth Baseball program’s 11th year, and since its introduction has helped aid local teams, benefiting more than 5 million young people in communities where Chevrolet’s customers live, work and play. In 2015, more than 1,400 Chevrolet dealers participated across the country.

 Jack Maxton Chevrolet will present the Olentangy Braves Little League with an equipment kit that includes useful items such as bags, scorebooks, catcher’s gear and Chevrolet Youth Baseball T-shirts. The sponsorship also includes youth clinics featuring current and former MLB/MiLB players and coaches, and instructors from Ripken Baseball.

In addition, Jack Maxton Chevrolet will present a check representing a one-time monetary contribution to Olentangy Braves Little League.  Sponsored leagues across the country will have the chance to earn additional funds as community members take test drives at their partnering dealership to help support the league.

In addition to its commitment to youth baseball, Chevrolet also is the Official Vehicle of Major League Baseball™.

“Chevrolet vehicles are designed and built for families, safety and fun, so we encourage young people and their parents to make a Chevrolet the official vehicle of their household,” said Todd.

It is very important to everyone at Jack Maxton Chevrolet that we remain part of the community and not just another dealership. Being in business since 1926 is directly related to the loyalty our customers have shown us throughout the years. We are showing our appreciation by sponsoring and supporting Olentangy Braves Little League, among other events in 2016. We also thank Chevrolet for supporting our efforts through test drive donations and clinics at the Clippers field.

Jack Maxton News: GM Recognized for Support of National Guard and Reserve


U.S. Department of Defense honors company for 40 years of support

In 1972, General Motors was the very first company to sign a pledge to the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) that vowed to continually support members of U.S. military services and their families in both times of peace and times of crisis. Recently, GM was honored by the DoD for its commitment to the National Guard and Reserve, and its loyalty to a promise that has spanned more than four decades.

“Our veterans embody the values we believe in, and I thank the U.S. Department of Defense for the opportunity to formalize this commitment and express our sincere gratitude,” said Mark Reuss, GM executive vice president of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain.

At a Veterans Day celebration at GM’s Technical Center in Warren, Michigan, representatives from the DoD were joined by hundreds of employees and reps from several military groups and councils to recognize the 100,000-plus GM workers who have served.

“General Motors is setting a high standard for all automobile manufacturers to follow by providing above and beyond support of veterans, many of whom currently serve in the Guard and Reserve,” said Tom Bullock, chief of employer outreach, DoD Office of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).

Also at the ceremony, the ESGR Extraordinary Employer Support Award was bestowed upon GM for the company’s continued commitment to employees in the National Guard and Reserve.

Despite only being formalized in 1972, GM has been providing exemplary sustained backing to members and families of the U.S. military for more than 100 years. GM currently supports organizations and programs such as Building for America’s Bravest and the Achilles Freedom Team. In fact, at the ceremony in November, GM announced a new campaign, spearheaded by the GMC brand, to raise funds for and general awareness of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation (the parent organization of Building for America’s Bravest) to help build customized, specially-adapted homes for injured or disabled veterans.

Places to go in your Chevrolet: Five Places to Volunteer in Ohio this Holiday Season


Reach out and help those in need

Volunteering-Ohio

For most families in Ohio, the holiday season is a time for enacting traditions, from gift-giving rituals to special seasonal meals. Now is a great time to add a new tradition to the list and find a way to give back to the community and help the less fortunate. There is no better way to get in the holiday spirit than by donating one’s time, money or effort to a local charitable organization.  Here are five ways that families and individuals can get involved and help out the community this holiday season.

Christmas Cheer

Each year, the Salvation Army in Columbus puts on Christmas Cheer, one of the state’s largest holiday toy and food distribution programs. Christmas Cheer provides thousands of less fortunate families with food and toys over a two-day period during the holiday season. Salvation Army relies on donations, as well as volunteers, who are needed to assemble boxes, fill food boxes, register families, give out toys and more. More information about volunteering for the Christmas Cheer program is located on the Salvation Army’s website at http://co.salvationarmy.org/CentralOhio/CHRISTMAS-CHEER.

The City Mission

The City Mission has been serving Cleveland’s homeless population since 1910. Today, the organization has two shelters, the Crossroads Men’s Crisis Center on Carnegie Avenue and Laura’s Home Women’s Crisis Center on Puritas Avenue. Every November and December, City Mission serves tens of thousands of special Thanksgiving and Christmas meals to those who are less fortunate. Families interested in volunteering to help out at the City Mission should fill out the volunteer form at https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?AP=1007694277.

Give Back Cincinnati Fall Feast

Civic-minded southwestern Ohioans should look into Give Back Cincinnati, a non-profit that offers over two dozen volunteer opportunities annually. On Thursday, Nov. 26, the downtown Duke Energy Convention Center will host the tenth consecutive Give Back Cincinnati Fall Feast, providing free food and fun to all guests in attendance, including the city’s homeless and underserved. Registration to volunteer for Fall Feast is open at http://fallfeast.org/get-involved/.

 

Toledo Christmas Baskets

Through thousands of human services programs, Volunteers of America helps nearly 2 million people in the U.S., over 20,000 of whom live in the Greater Ohio area. Each year, Volunteers of America helps feed Toledo’s most vulnerable citizens by providing them with free Christmas baskets filled with food. To find out more about contributing food items or volunteering, visit http://www.voago.org/christmas-cheer.

Athens County Children Services Santa Tree Project

Southeastern Ohioans have lots of opportunities to help the less fortunate this holiday season, including the 28th annual Santa Tree Project, which is being coordinated once again by the Athens County Children Services. Each year, the Santa Tree Project provides gifts to over 1,500 underprivileged children in Athens County. Community members are encouraged to donate and get involved, which they can do at http://athenscountysantaproject.blogspot.com/.

The holiday season provides Ohio families with many opportunities to give back. There is no better time to teach children that it is always more rewarding to give than to receive, and these service opportunities are a great way to do that.
