Each month in 2021, Better Car People spotlights one dealership and a local charity of their choice through our new Gratitude Campaign. Better Car People donates $1,000 to the charity in the name of the dealership in the hopes of helping the local community and spreading the word about the specific charity.
In March, Better Car People and the Gratitude Campaign were delighted to highlight George Moore Chevrolet and their charity Community PedsCare in Jacksonville, FL.
Dealer Partner: George Moore Chevrolet
Location: Jacksonville, FL
Spokesperson: Justin Moore, General Manager
Charity: Community PedsCare
What is Community PedsCare?
Community PedsCare is a part of Community Hospice and Palliative Care. Founded in 1979, this organization has helped over 220,000 adults and children to “live better with advanced illnesses.” Community PedsCare provides assistance, help, and comfort specifically to children from prenatal (pre-birth) to 21 years of age.
Along with caring for the child, PedsCare also provides spiritual and emotional counseling for the parents and siblings, helping them to better cope with the strain of the illness, and they provide resources for the parents to utilize as well.
Why Does George Moore Chevrolet partner with Community PedsCare?
George Moore Chevrolet has a community-first approach, and it shows. When I asked Justin Moore, General Manager of George Moore Chevrolet, why Community PedsCare, he stated that George Moore is invested in the local community. Just take a look at their Facebook page--it definitely tells that story. They are involved in many charities and organizations, but this time the focus is on the kids.
They promote local businesses (especially during this last year), sponsor children’s athletics, host Golf Tournaments that benefit schools, provide multiple children and families with Christmas presents, and every month highlight a Police Officer who has gone above and beyond to engage with the community.
This is definitely a dealership that puts others before themselves.
Community PedsCare was an easy choice for this donation. “Who would not want to help sick children feel better and have better care?” stated Justin Moore. And the assistance and hospice that PedsCare provides do just that.
