"We could not have asked for better results from this year's Mazda Drive for Good event," said Jim O'Sullivan, President and CEO, MNAO. "The growth seen in monetary donations and volunteer service hours are a welcomed increase. It allows Mazda's employees, dealers and business partners to lend a helping hand and participate in constructive and engaging ways, helping their community throughout the year."
Mazda's Drive for Good event ran from November 21, 2014 through January 2, 2015. For every new Mazda vehicle purchased during this time period, Mazda donated US$ 150 to one of four national, or 44 local, charities, with the choice of the charity being left up to the customer. Customers who bought a vehicle during the program period still have until January 31, 2015 to make their donation decision. In addition to the monetary donation, Mazda also pledged an hour of charitable service for every test drive of a new Mazda vehicle taken during the Mazda Drive for Good event.
