Forest City, Iowa – Lichtsinn Motors of Forest City recently donated $4,000 to Hospice of North Iowa through their We Care Charitable Giving program.
“The We Care Program allows us to direct our giving funds to those organizations that our customers tell us are important to them,” said Ron Lichtsinn, owner of Lichtsinn Motors. “Our customers told us that Hospice of North Iowa was important to them, and we are excited to provide this donation on behalf of our customers.”
The We Care program began in October 2009 and it provides that Lichtsinn Motors will donate $50 to the customer’s choice of one of six pre-selected organizations for each new or pre-owned car or truck purchased at the Forest City dealership.
The six We Care organizations for 2013 are: Hospice of North Iowa, the American Cancer Society, the Forest City Community School District, the Lake Mills Community School District, the Forest City YMCA and the Forest City Emergency Services Center. Organizations have the opportunity to submit an application to be part of the next year’s list as well.
Customers purchasing a new or pre-owned car, van, SUV or truck retailing over $5,000 are able to select the organization which they would like their $50 donation to go to. This is an ongoing dealership program and donations will be made annually through this program.
