Jeff Gordon Chevrolet Launches Campaign In Support of Autism Awareness for Fourth Year

April 2nd was World Autism Awareness Day – a day where monuments and landmarks around the globe are lit up blue in support of the cause. Even though Jeff Gordon’s award-winning dealership in Wilmington is not (yet) considered a historic landmark, it will be joining the rest and lighting it up blue with its puzzle piece display, now up near South College Road! JGC Dealership 4-8-2019 Every night throughout the month of April, these pieces will be illuminated to show support for Autism Awareness and get the word out for the dealership’s annual fundraising campaign. If you’re local to the Chevy dealership and see the display, snap a pic (only if it’s safe!) and post it with the hashtag #JGCFamily so we can see it!

Jeff Gordon Chevy’s Annual Fundraising Campaign

For the fourth consecutive year, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet has pledged to donate $25 for every new and pre-owned vehicle sold throughout the month of April to Oasis NC – A local non-profit here in Wilmington, NC dedicated to providing Outstanding Autism Support & Instructional Services for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their families.

Oasis NC use evidence-based practices and highly individualized services & support to target a broad range of educational, behavioral, social, and communication needs. Funds raised through Jeff Gordon Chevy’s Autism Awareness campaign will go towards supporting all of these helpful practices to its students.

Help Us Support Oasis NC!

Jeff Gordon Chevy is calling on the community to help spread the word on this campaign throughout the month and there are several ways to do that:

  1. Make a purchase! If you’ve been considering upgrading or getting an additional vehicle, now is a great time to explore your options; Not just because of this campaign either – There are some really great incentives available right now, and plenty of selection!
  2. We understand that you may not be in the market now, or even for some time. But maybe you know someone that is… Tell them to at least come by and shop around with us! If they do purchase with us, that will mean money in your pocket for the referral as well (just make sure they mention you sent them.)
  3. Share the Facebook Event on your Facebook profile or Twitter feed to help get the word out about the campaign! Or, just hit the “Interested” button – Every little bit helps!
  4. Make a donation to Oasis NC directly on their website at OasisNC.org/Donate.
  5. Buy stuff on Amazon! When you make a purchase via Oasis NC’s Amazon Smile account, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase totals directly to them. Follow their link on OasisNC.org or log in with your existing Amazon account at smile.amazon.com and search Oasis NC to add them as your charity to support and make sure you always start on smile.amazon.com to make sure your purchases count.

Jeff Gordon Chevrolet also ran a Malibu Giveaway for all donors to Oasis’ campaign.  For every $50 an individual donated, they would get a chance to win a 2016 Chevy Malibu.  Unfortunately, our winning donor didn’t win the Malibu in the final game, but she did get two tickets to this year’s Coca Cola 600! And, we got some great photos!

Background
For Leap Year 2016, Jeff Gordon Chevrolet, along with Enterprise Rent-A-Car and the Wilmington Hammerheads gave the students of Oasis NC a day of fun and soccer at the Capelli Sports Center in Wilmington, NC.

Our #DayItForward efforts were part of Oasis NC‘s “Buy the Bus” Campaign – A fundraiser to help the school get a bus or van to allow them to transport the students to and from activities around Wilmington without having to take multiple trips by having to use their personal vehicles. We look forward to seeing what they pick out and watch them grow in the near future! Visit their website or Facebook Page for additional details on how you can get involved.
