Landers Auto Group donated $50,000 last week to the Arkansas Food Bank for disaster relief on behalf of its central Arkansas dealerships, Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, Toyota and Kia.
The company, moved by the devastating storms and tornadoes that struck Arkansas March 31, presented the $50,000 check in an event at Landers Toyota on Colonel Glenn Road in Little Rock, with executives from all three area Landers dealerships present.
The dealerships are also serving as donation hubs and drop-off locations for people eager to help storm victims, and the auto group said it is committed to ensuring that all donations reach local residents in need.
“We are deeply committed to our community, and we know when faced with situations like this, it’s more important than ever to come together and support one another,” said Chris Chase, general manager of the Toyota dealership. “We are honored to have the opportunity to donate to the Arkansas Food Bank Disaster Relief.”
Dave Cerutti, general manager of Landers Kia, said the auto group’s ability “to come together when our community needs it the most is what we are all about.” Ivan Figurero, general manager of Landers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, said the company was “inspired by the resilience of our friends and neighbors, and we will continue to do everything we can to ensure their safety and well-being.
