The Swope dealerships have proudly supported the United Way of Central Kentucky for more than 17 years, encouraging and matching employee contributions, becoming one of its community impact leaders, and participating in many of its community outreach projects. One such project involved Spring Haven, a local organization that focuses on helping abused family find a new and healthy start. We are privileged to partner with a community organization that works here in Central Kentucky to make a real difference in the lives of our friends and neighbors.
The UWCK contributes to major organizations like the American Red Cross, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Feeding America at the local level. For the American Red Cross, our associates refurbished the Disaster Relief office, including paint, flooring, window treatments, and furniture. We have several owners and associates who serve as Big Brothers and Big Sisters, as well as an associate who volunteers time to sit on the board of that organization. We’re proud to sponsor the Big Brothers and Big Sisters annual fundraiser, Bowl for Kids Sake. With Feeding America, we have led canned food drive initiatives and we volunteer at their packaging facility a few times a year to help with their backpack and senior programs. The backpack program offers food bags to kids on Friday afternoon, to make sure that they are fed when they’re not at school, and the senior program supplements the great work of the Meals on Wheels program in our county.
