Check Presentation To Local Charities From Progressive Chevrolet Employees
PRLog - Dec. 21, 2012 - MASSILLON, Ohio -- This year, the employees of Progressive Chevrolet and Progressive Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram donated a total of $38,000 to local charities and organizations throughout the area.  These funds are donations made exclusively by employees and are collected throughout the year as part of the Employee Civic Fund.  Jennifer Johnston, 4th generation of the family owned business, mentions that “as our company grows, so does our Civic Fund (http://youtu.be/grICVn-RX2A).”  2012 has been no exception.  In just one year, employees of Progressive Chevrolet have increased the total giving by $4,000, and Progressive Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram employees have increased the total giving by $2,000.

The Employee Civic Fund has been part of Progressive Auto Group (http://www.ProgressiveAutoGroup.com) since 1950, when it was created as a way for employees to get more involved in the community.  With its start, employees have generously contributed each and every year since.  By donating just a small portion of each paycheck, employees are able to give back in a huge way.  In just 10 years, employees of Progressive Chevrolet have contributed donations of over $208,000 and employees from Progressive Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram have donated over $107,000.  Combined, that’s more than $315,000 in just 10 years!

Because employees contribute the donations, they also determine where the funds go.  Representatives from each department are selected to participate as part of the Civic Fund Committee.  This committee meets once a year to determine how the current year’s funds will be disbursed.  Most organizations chosen are local charities or local chapters from national organizations that in some way help families in our area.  Bringing it even closer to home, many of these organizations have directly impacted the life of an employee or loved one at Progressive Auto Group.

Organizations chosen to receive donations for 2012, include (http://youtu.be/grICVn-RX2A):
