4WD continues to get in the spirit of giving during this holiday season and has now donated over $15,000 to various Jeep events and causes this year. Donations go to off-road Jeep club causes and events including medical research, needy children, and 4×4 trail runs and parades.
“The holiday season brings more awareness to causes benefitting those in need so we increase our sponsorships and charitable donations to pay it forward to the Jeep community,” says Kelly Young, 4WD Internet Manager. “We believe in supporting Jeep club events that get off-road enthusiasts together to celebrate our shared passion.”
In November, 4WD donated two $100 gift cards to the first Jeep and Truck Rally presented by the Space Coast Jeep Club and to the 8th Annual Turkey Run held by the High Desert Off-Road Club. The 15th Annual Great Lakes Jeep Thing staged a Toys for Tots parade in Chicago with 244 rigs. “The weather was unseasonably cold, but it didn’t dampen peoples’ spirits,” says president of Chicago Off-Road Expeditions (CORE) Chris Ryan. “We were fortunate to have 4WD donate gift cards that we raffled off at our members party and this raised money for next year’s parade.”
Additionally, 4WD donated two $100 gift cards to the 2nd Annual Kickin’ Cancer with JJ Facebook Auction. Funds raised went toward JJ Bland and his medical expenses for bone cancer treatment. Last, but not least, 4WD donated a Smittybilt XRC 8 winch to the December 7 Christmas party held by the Arkansas Crawlers Jeep club.
