Patterson Community Involvement
Patterson Gives Back:
Patterson Auto Group is proud to partner with 12 different non-profit organizations throughout the year, one for each month. These organizations are selected based on how large they are, how much impact they have on the community and the business they do with Patterson Auto Group. A portion of each car sale for that month is donated to that specific organization, with the total amount not to be less than $4,000. Both the organization and Patterson Auto Group are promoted on each end, respectively. A check presentation is held each month as well. This is just one way that Patterson Auto Group gives back to our community.
For the past two years, the employees at Patterson Auto Group have donated their time to ring the Salvation Army donation bell at Wal Mart and United locations in Wichita Falls. This saves the Salvation Army time and money that they would normally use to hire people or find workers. With the number of employees that volunteer time, Patterson Auto Group is normally able to fill 1-2 weeks of bell ringing.
Each year, Patterson Auto Group buys the first 500 boxes of Campfire candy in order to support Wichita Falls Campfire.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month:
In addition to the employees at Patterson Auto Group doing things on their own time, collectively there are pink ribbon Breast Cancer Awareness decals on the windows of every dealership and service department. The Directors and Management team wear pink Patterson Auto Group shirts once per week during Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Patterson Auto Group partners with a local elementary school, Scotland Elementary, each year as part of the Partners in Education program. A clothes drive is held at the annual Christmas party, which benefits the students at the school. We have the privilege of the students at Scotland Elementary coming and singing to the employees each year at Christmas time.
