Miles Toyota: What's Your Why
A humbling and rewarding experience
Ronald McDonald House South Island has received great support from the team at Miles Toyota over many years. This support has enabled us to welcome hundreds of families into a home-away-from-home when they need it most. CEO Mark Mills explains his motivation behind the valued charity partnership.
Every year we continue to show our support through monthly employee volunteer days, weekly employee donations matched dollar-for-dollar by the company, plus additional dealership fundraising efforts. Late in 2021 we provided them with a cheque from our “Just a Buck’ initiative: payroll giving that each of our staff members can choose to participate in. For just $1 a fortnight staff can give back and it certainly all adds up over the year – raising $5,050 in 2021 (we match every dollar raised).
Miles Toyota is proud to have sponsored Ronald McDonald House South Island right from day one. Amongst other activities, we have provided the RMHSI team with Toyota vehicles to help them carry out their work, participated in street appeals, and proudly hosted the celebration of their 10-year anniversary in 2013.
To partner with an organisation like Ronald McDonald House South Island is especially important to us, as our efforts enable them to continue to provide the vital care and support to children and their families in a very difficult time.
You decide the support from a financial perspective, but the return from associating with a charity like Ronald McDonald House South Island, you can’t put a price on that. Make the most of the opportunities for your staff to volunteer within the House; it is a truly humbling and rewarding experience.
