On October 7, 2017, dozens of SADA members and staff along with volunteers from City Year spent a full day installing an exciting new toddler playground at the Ronald McDonald House on Sid Katz Drive. The volunteers also added new mulch around the existing playground for older children, and installed new landscaping. The playscape, plants and landscaping materials were donated by SA Auto Dealers in hopes of bringing joy to young children temporarily staying at Ronald McDonald House. The facility offers cost-free lodging for families of sick children hospitalized or receiving critical medical care in San Antonio.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in August, SADA members launched a number of collection drives to assist communities hard hit by the storm.
At a SADA sponsored collection drive, members donated water, canned goods, food, blankets, diapers, dog food and other essentials which were delivered to District 8 City Councilman Manny Pelaez’s office for distribution to communities in need.
SADA also made a number of financial donations to support hurricane relief efforts including a $20,000 donation to the Rebuild Texas Relief Fund, a $10,000 donation to the NADA emergency relief fund to help dealership employees affected by the hurricane, and a financial contribution to the San Antonio Food Bank which funded 7,000 meals.
SADA members also donated generously to relief efforts. Among them:
The Cavender Auto Group donated $75,000 to underwrite a star-studded George Strait benefit concert at the Majestic Theatre featuring Strait, Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen. The check presentation was made during a pre-concert press concert with the musicians and Governor Greg Abbott. A portion of the benefit concert was broadcast during a nationally televised Hand in Hand telethon on September 12.
Cavender Audi held a diaper drive to benefit the Diaper Bank.
Jordan Ford donated an entire truckload of bottled water to the San Antonio Food Bank for distribution to the impacted Gulf Coast communities.
