During the month of September, charitable giving was in the fast lane. Manheim’s Total Resource Auctions (TRA), which run weekly at 69 Manheim operating locations nationwide, and Charitable Adult Rides and Services (CARS) partnered on a national “Donate Your Car” effort raising $6,114 to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Dealers, clients and consumers were encouraged to donate their car to CARS and join the fight against childhood cancer. Thirty-nine donated vehicles ran through Manheim’s TRA lanes and were co‐branded with a Manheim/St. Jude sticker to inform buyers that all sale proceeds from these vehicles will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“Partnering with CARS to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a natural fit for Manheim,” said Grace Huang, senior vice president of Inventory Services, Manheim. “Having been to St. Jude and seeing the inspiring work they do first-hand, I knew Manheim could make a difference for the children and families who spend time there. Our team members, dealer clients and the community rose to the challenge in strong support.”
In addition, Manheim has team members participating in more than 35 St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer race events nationwide as part of Cox Automotive’s annual campaign. Fundraising efforts from both events will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s life-saving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.
