Greenwood Chevy to Give $700 Monthly to United Way Charities

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – Greenwood Chevrolet in Austintown is starting a monthly promotion where you can vote to award select United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley charities with $700 in total donations every month from the dealer.

Twenty charities will be paired up and lobby for the most votes at GreenwoodChevrolet.com/vote during a given month this year. The charity receiving the most votes will receive a $500 donation, while the runner-up will receive a $200 donation from the dealership.

“Greenwood Chevrolet and Greg Greenwood are truly going the extra mile for our United Way during our centennial celebration,”  said Bob Hannon, president of the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley. “We know change does not happen alone and our partner agencies help so many people in our community from their education programs to providing food, clothing and shelter to those in need.  We are proud of the work they do and know they deserve this extra support provided by Greenwood.”

You can visit GreenwoodChevrolet.com/vote during the final two weeks of each month to cast a vote for your favorite of the two charities or the one you feel is most deserving of the $500 donation. You can vote once a day during the voting period. Results will be posted on Greenwood Chevrolet of Austintown’s website as well as social media channels.

For March, the first two charities to be voted on are The Salvation Army and the Jewish Community Center.

For the past 9 years, Greenwood Chevrolet in Austintown has supported the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley with its contributions as the sponsor of the United Way Vehicle or Cash Giveaway, by personally donating a vehicle to be given away and has helped raise millions of dollars for United Way charities in Mahoning and Trumbull counties. Last month, Greenwood gave away its 9th vehicle as part of this promotion in the form of a 2018 Chevy Cruze Redline edition, built at the GM Lordstown Plant, to Cathy Grizinski.

“While some people are unable to financially support the centennial celebration, we wanted to give everyone a chance to join the fight by asking them to determine which charities we donate our resources to every month,” said Greg Greenwood, president of Greenwood Chevrolet. “The United Way gives people without a voice an opportunity to be heard and to make a difference.”
