Quarter One - Centennial Kickoff
Thank you to Greg Greenwood and Greenwood Chevrolet for being a Presenting Sponsor for our Centennial Celebration.
We truly appreciate you always "going the extra mile" for our community.
"It's a real honor to be a part of this celebration as a family and as an organization, and as a long term supporter of the United Way," said Greg Greenwood, owner and operator of Greenwood Chevrolet.
Greg is one of four presenting sponsors for the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley's Centennial Celebration.
For years, Greg has not only run a work place campaign encouraging his employees to donate to the United Way, but he's also provided an amazing incentive for other donors to give. He has generously sponsored the Greenwood Cruze or Cash Giveaway for the last 9 years.
If a donor gives $260 or more a year, they are entered into a drawing to win a brand new car or $15,000 cash. He then hosts 5 finalists from Mahoning County and 5 finalists from the United Way of Trumbull County at the Austintown dealership. One lucky winner picks the correct key to start the car and picks what prize they would like to take as their own!
So when Greg was approached to be one of the presenting sponsors for our 100th Anniversary, he was proud to say yes.
"It's an honor to be a part of the process that celebrates 100 years of that," said Greg. " And it's equally exciting to know what is going on right now with the United Way programs and the future that the first 100 years built for us."
Not only is Greenwood Chevrolet supporting United Way, but they are extending their generosity to our partner agencies as well. They are sponsoring a monthly charity giveaway each month until the end of the year. Twenty charities, which have been selected by the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley, will be paired up and lobby for the most votes at www.GreenwoodChevrolet.com/vote during a given month this year. The charity receiving the most votes will receive a $500 donation, while the runner-up will receive a $200 donation from the dealership.
"We love the United Way for how many lives it touches. We love its strategic intentions," said Greg. "We think so much of what they do is setting us up for a brighter future as a community."
Our United Way is so thankful to Greg, the Greenwood family, and the Greenwood Chevy family for all their support. We look forward to the next 100 years thanks to your generosity.
