The 2016 Mazda Drive for Good: Help a Great Cause!
Giving back has always been part of Mazda’s core philosophy, and as such they have launched the fourth Mazda Drive for Good program — it’s happening now through January 3, 2017. The Mazda Drive for Good program allows customers to come in to Tracy Mazda and test drive one of our cars for a good cause. Every test drive will add one hour of volunteer time that our employees will perform in the Stockton and Modesto areas. But there’s even more good will that is coming out of this incredible program, so keep reading to learn more.
Mazda Drive for Good
In addition to volunteering time for every test drive taken during the holiday season, Mazda will also be donating $150 to charity when you purchase or lease a new Mazda like 2017 Mazda3 or Mazda CX-3. To date, Mazda has already raised $14,635,000 and donated 214,871 hours of time to worthy causes.
Here are just a few of the charities that you can direct your $150 donation towards:
- St. Jude Children’s Hospital
- American Red Cross
- American Heart Association
- Ronald McDonald House Charities
- Rady Children’s Hospital
- Children’s Hospital & Medical Center Foundation
- Nationwide Children’s Hospital
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the American Heart Association, and the American National Red Cross will receive the following minimum donations regardless of how many test drives are taken: $350,000, $250,000, and $200,000.
Mazda Drive for Good Contest
In partnership with NBCUniversal, Mazda also gave one person $30,000 to take their cause to the next level. The winner, Jahmal Cole of My Block My Hood My City, will use the money to bring even more teenagers from Chicago on tours to explore their home city in new and unexpected ways.
Test Drive a Mazda Today for a Good Cause
There’s still time to test-drive a new Mazda for a good cause at Tracy Mazda, so make your way to our showroom and take one out for a spin. And remember: if you purchase a Mazda before January 3, 2017, Mazda will donate $150 to charity. Stop by soon to make a difference over the holidays!
