Annually in November & December:
- Orange County Rescue Mission - Village of Hope
THE GIFT OF GIVING. Our Donation Drive for new toys or clothing December 23, 2011 helped benefit families, adults, teens and kids in need this holiday season.
Part of the annual tradition at Tustin Acura is our annual charity drive for the needy children and families in the Orange County Rescue Mission in Tustin. The largest homeless sub-population on the Village of Hope campus is single women with children.
Thanks to the generous donations from customers and employees, we were able to deliver another car load of stuffed animals, bicycle, Barbie dolls, electronic toys.
Thank you for helping to uplift their spirits with a simple gift for the holidays.
- Holiday Food Drive Mission
Due to the demand for food donations this year was higher than ever before. While we also felt the effects of financial burden, the employees of DCH Tustin Acura have risen to the calling of giving to the less fortunate people by participating in two holiday food drives this season. One was for the Second Harvest Food bank and the other is for the Orange County Rescue Mission.
This has been an on-going effort for DCH Tustin Acura for the last 10 years. In the past, we have also contributed to the Second Harvest Food Bank. This Year we focused primarily on the OC Rescue Mission, a local mission right here in Tustin, both places accept donations year round. The recipients have sent their thanks to all the people at Tustin Acura who participated in these campaigns. To see our efforts that can put a smile on some faces is a rewarding experience for all of us, thank you for your support!
Annually in October & November:
WEAR PINK. HAVE FUN. FIGHT BREAST CANCER WITH MONITORY CONTRIBUTIONS.
That's what we did in the month of October and November. DCH matched dollar for dollar for each donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, our employees know that we can help fund critical breast cancer research, local education, screening and treatment programs that impact people in our community.
Thank you in joining our support, and if you missed out don't worry, you can donate anytime to help stop breast cancer! Click on the pink for the cure logo for more information.
3rd Annual Campaign Contribution
Due to budget constraints facing all the schools in Orange County, we joined hands with all the dealers in the Tustin Auto Center to make contributions to the Help Our Schools Campaign.
For every vehicle we sold between October and November, we contributed $50 to the school chosen by the buyer. Last year, we have raised over $80,000 for the local schools.
Annually - Year Round
We like to encourage reading, for children and adults alike. So by purchasing used books directly from the Orange County Public Library and creating our own book exchange at our dealership we are helping the OCPL and encouraging others to pick up a book.
Please feel free to pick up a book in our waiting area or drop one off with our cashiers during your service visit!
- DCH Teen Safe Driving Foundation
DCH Auto Group began a Teen Safe Driving Campaign in each of the 26 stores nation wide nearly 6 years ago, during this time DCH Tustin Acura has been working and sponsoring Local High Schools at Beckman High School, Foothill High School and Tustin High School in an ongoing program called Students Against Destructive Decisions "SADD", These students have made a significant impact on students' awareness in distracted behaviors that may impede the safety of driving.
Now we are also proud to announce the addition of our 4th SADD Chapter, newly forming at Northwood High School, part of the Irvine Unified School District.
At DCH Tustin Acura, one of our primary goals in the community is to stop the preventable destructive actions in life's path on and off the road which take so many of our young adults.
We recognize that teens are more responsive to each other and more likely to use positive peer pressure when educated. We focus our goal on allowing teens to run their program their way with ongoing educational support and guidance, leadership trainings, spreading awareness by actions, information, and behind the wheel attention, and the value of positive living all around. We are extremely proud of these students and very excited to announce that each year they exceed our expectations in growing.
Currently with nearly 300 students sharing awareness and growing, they have recently started reaching out and working with neighboring schools in getting the word out. Your can help show your support by acknowledging these students when you see them, supporting fundraisers, and taking a moment to think and drive safely.
