At Mike’s Auto Body, we truly believe it is an honor to serve the communities in which we do business. All of our employees are proud of our charitable efforts. One such charitable effort at Mike’s Auto Body is the Community Give Back program that runs year round.
The Community Give Back program is truly driven by Mike’s Auto Body and their customers. The donation amount comes directly from a percentage of the cost to repair the customer’s own vehicle and sent directly to the charity they have selected. Whether it’s a school, non-profit organization or other charitable cause close to the customer’s heart, it’s just another way for Mike’s Auto Body to give back to the community and allow their customers to decide on the charity who will benefit
One huge fan of Mike’s Auto Body’s Community Give Back Program is Jerry Stone, owner of Jack Stone Insurance Agency in Brentwood, CA. . His agency represents Safeco and Mercury Insurance companies and with more than 40 years of experience in the insurance industry, Jerry has always been proactive when it comes to helping his community. The Give Back Program aligns perfectly with his agency’s ongoing mission.
“When a client calls after getting into an accident, we discuss the company that will be repairing the vehicle, and my agency always mentions Mike’s Auto Body and the Community Give Back program,” Stone said. “It immediately gets their attention and that’s why so many of my clients have gotten involved over the years. Mike’s Auto Body is one of our preferred shops and their work and overall customer experience is excellent. The existence of the Give Back Program makes our clients’ decision even easier.”
Jerry has four charities he often recommends to clients if they do not have a specific one in mind. They include Shepherd’s Gate – a shelter for women and children; East County Veteran’s Support Services – which supports veterans and active duty military families, , Kitty 911/K-911 – a pet rescue organization, and the Delta Wrestling Club – a youth wrestling organization. “These are charities we are personally close to but there are so many great non-profit organizations out there, you really can’t go wrong. Mike’s also has an extensive list on their website to choose from, or if you don’t see the charity you would like to benefit, just let them know and they will add the organization to their list” he said.
Upon completion of the repair, a check is sent to the charity and everyone is recognized for doing a good thing by participating in the Give Back Program. “The client feels good about the donation, Mike’s employees feel good knowing they are a part of it, and I get our name out there as well. “It’s a win, win, win!” Stone said. “I really get a kick out of it every time. It creates a sense of goodwill, which is exactly what we want to achieve. People end up calling their friends and telling them to get their vehicles repaired at Mike’s Auto Body and the Give Back Program often plays a pivotal role in that process.”
We can all agree no one chooses to be in an accident situation, but if you find yourself needing Mike’s Auto Body’s services, remember to mention the Give Back Program. You can check out our list of organizations on our website at www.mikesautobody.com under the Community tab. Click on the link for your charity, print and fill out the certificate, and bring it with you when you come in for an estimate. If you don’t see your charity of choice, just let us know and we will add it to the list. Once the repair is complete, Mike’s will send a check for 3% of the total parts and labor directly to your charity along with a letter informing the organization that the gift is from you!!
By donating the money on your behalf, we are working together to make our communities a better place to work, live and raise our families.
