- The Rick Case Automotive Group collected 1,000 bikes as part of the 36th annual Rick Case Bikes for Kids program, launched by Rick and Rita Case. The new or used bikes donated during the holidays by Rick Case customers were distributed to kids in need through Boys & Girls Clubs and other local charities, churches and schools. With 16 dealerships in Florida, Georgia and Ohio, Rick Case Automotive Group offers Maserati, Acura, Audi, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Kia, Mazda, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Honda vehicles.
- New Country Mini in Hartford, Conn., collected art supplies for Hartford Public Schools, and delivered them in two Mini Coopers, as part of the fourth annual Stuff the Mini to the Max campaign. Customers donated the supplies at the dealership and at Minis parked at participating Staples stores in December. The school district is especially in need of art supplies this year because of budget cutbacks and hundreds of new students relocated from Puerto Rico who benefit from art as a way to overcome language barriers.
