Over the years, the Raja family has consistently involved themselves and the Autodome dealership with philanthropic community support both locally and globally. From their partnership with World Vision Canada that spans more than twenty years, supporting university awareness programs, helping to feed the hungry in the GTA through Second Harvest to contributing to Scott McKay’s Charity Climb in support of Make-A-Wish® Canada and donating to the Canadian Cancer Society. Autodome gives back and is a proud local and global community member. We receive a lot of feedback from customers that view our thank you letters, pictures and plaques that are on display in our customer lounge and throughout Autodome. We always thank them and say, it’s because of nice people like you and your family that we can make these contributions and help make the world a better place by giving back and getting involved. Here is a look at some of those thank you letters and plaques that are on display within the Autodome environment.
A Partner Against Hunger in the GTA
In January of 2013, we received a letter from Second Harvest, thanking us for our support. The customers and staff of Autodome generated a generous donation during the December Give Back Campaign. 7,200 healthy meals were provided to Toronto’s hungry during the 2012 holiday season, thanks to our combined efforts of community support.
