Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting donated $45,000 to the Children’s Miracle Network at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The contribution was made as Maaco employees, franchisees and suppliers gathered at the second annual Maaco golf tournament and charity auction to benefit CMN at CHOP.
In the Philadelphia area, Children’s Miracle Network raises funds and awareness for the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, reaching about 1.3 million children every year with treatments for all kinds of injuries and illnesses from broken bones to cancer to heart defects, regardless of their families’ ability to pay.
“Maaco is a company that reaches out to the community,” said MAACO Franchising President David Lapps. “We get as much out of this as we give.
"A check to the CMN for $35,000 and at last count, we are approaching $45,000. This was not only raised by the golf event but by the efforts of many of our employees either through contributions or many of the outings, bake sales, hot dog and pretzel days, baseball outing, Chick-fil-A Spirit Day and a car wash organized by our CMN committee."
Added Maaco Chairman Ken Walker, “We as a brand have responsibilities to the communities we are in, and the fact is that giving that is heartfelt is much more fun than receiving.”
“No child is turned away, thanks in large part to the funds raised in the community by people like Maaco,” Valentino said, “people who take time out of their days and their schedules to do golf tournaments and raise funds for kids they know or may never know.”
The golf event and charity auction was supported by the participation of more than 100 Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting franchisees, staff and suppliers. The suppliers include Saint-Gobain, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes and Yodle.
Founded in 1972, Maaco repairs and paints more than 500,000 vehicles annually at 475 franchised collision repair and auto painting centers.
