Forest City, Iowa – Lichtsinn Motors of Forest City recently donated $2,500 to the American Cancer Society through their We Care Charitable Giving plan.
The We Care plan 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 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 the American Cancer Society was important to them, and we are providing them this donation to coincide with the upcoming June 29 Relay for Life of Winnebago County.”
Team Lichtsinn is a major corporate sponsor for the 2013 Relay for Life of Winnebago County.
The six We Care organizations for 2013 are: The American Cancer Society, HOSPICE of North Iowa, the Forest City Community School District, the Lake Mills Community School District, the Forest City YMCA and the Forest City Emergency Services Center. Donations will be presented to the remaining organizations throughout the balance of the year. In addition, each customer has the opportunity to nominate other organizations for consideration for the following year’s list. 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.
