We're Hear For You

At Ken Garff we know that our success wouldn’t be possible without our community. That’s why we do all we can to give back.

Listening Beyond the Dealership

Listening is behind everything we do at Ken Garff. And when we say “We Hear You,” we’re not just talking to the customers that come into our dealerships, we’re talking to our entire community. Giving back has been an integral part of this company, which is why we created the We’re Hear for You program.

In the spring of 2020, we realized that there was a huge opportunity for us to do even more. Many local businesses, families, and other organizations needed support to get through those uncertain times. Our dealerships and our corporate office got to work, purchasing items from those businesses and donating them to families, teachers, first responders, and more. But this was just the beginning of the We’re Hear for You program. Since then, we’ve kept the momentum going, working on multiple projects at a time, whether it’s revitalizing a community center, providing meals and household items for local families in need, buying supplies for teachers, and much more.

Our Projects

We’ve been busy helping people and organizations across the country. Here are a few of our recent projects.

Ken Garff Orem – January We're Hear for You Project

For their latest We’re Hear For You project, our Orem dealership employees surprised 27 nominated families with food, gifts, and other necessities! These nominated families were chosen because they are always giving back and serving others in their community.

Ken Garff Lehi - December We're Hear For You Project

Our Lehi dealership teams “adopted” 18 children through United Way’s Sub For Santa program for their We’re Hear For You project this month! Employees from our Lehi dealerships shopped, wrapped, and delivered the presents to each individual family over the last few weeks leading up to Christmas. Each child was purchased toys, clothing, books, and more!

Thank you to the United Way and their smooth process in making this project so successful! Thank you so much for helping us bring joy to families in our community!

Ken Garff American Fork

Our two west valley dealerships adopted families in the West Valley area through “Trees for Keeps” which is a local non profit that identifies families who may need a christmas tree this holiday season. We found out the needs and wish list of each family and departments shopped for, wrapped, and delivered presents to the families this week. It was a heartfelt experience for all involved!

Ken Garff Riverdale

Our Riverdale team highlighted and surprised 10 hospital workers from Ogden Regional Medical Center today for their WH4Y event. Hospital employees nominated their peers who have gone above and beyond the past year and have dealt with their own personal trials and continually showed up to help care for everyone at the hospital. Some have experienced their own personal losses and tragedies and our employees were thrilled to surprise them. Along with the hospital administartion and their peers, they were recognized with personalized gifts and gift baskets that were put together by Ken Garff employees. Such gifts included jazz tickets, spa packages, vouchers for flights, lagoon passes, etc. Each hospital employee was presented with their gift and given thanks for all of their incredible work.

Ken Garff American Fork - Oct 26

We are so proud of our American Fork teams (Ken Garff Chevrolet and Ken Garff American Fork Ford) and their hard work painting beautiful murals with local artist, Lindsay Huss Art, at the Dan Peterson School in American Fork! With Lindsay’s expert help, our teams were able to prep, sketch, and paint murals on three walls in the school over three days as part of our We’re Hear For You initiative!

The Dan Peterson School is a special school for children with disabilities who need individualized education programs. These murals will help brighten up the hallways, and they are also in honor of the school’s beloved former principal, Kim Wong, who passed away from the effects of Covid-19 last year. Thank you so much to Lindsay Huss for helping bringing these beautiful murals to life, and thank you to the staff and faculty of the school for all that you do every day!

Ken Garff Corporate - 9/22

Our corporate employees were able to serve the Utah Refugee Connection by cleaning up their new campus for our latest We’re Hear For You project!
The Utah Refugee Connection recently acquired new buildings that needed some TLC, so employees from our corporate teams got together to weed and clean up the grounds outside, as well as do some intense cleaning and sanitizing in the interior.
We’re so grateful for all of the amazing work the Utah Refugee Connection does in our community, so we were so happy to give their spaces some TLC so they could focus on continuing to serve the incredible refugee community we have right here in Salt Lake! See more pics

Ken Garff Orem - Sept 15

Our teams from Ken Garff Volkswagen, Ken Garff Nissan of Orem, and Ken Garff Honda Orem helped make improvements to the community garden at the Intermountain Orem Community Hospital for our latest We’re Hear For You project! This included fixing up the hospital’s community garden and sanding & staining the garden’s surrounding fence. The garden is used by community members, hospital staff, and as horticulture therapy for pediatric rehab patients, so we were happy to make it as nice as possible!

Our Orem teams will also be supporting the Intermountain Live Well initiative by donating supplies to help take their vegetable garden plots to the next level! We’re grateful to be able to give back to the community and support Intermountain!

Ken Garff West Valley - 8/31

For our latest We’re Hear For You project, our teams from Ken Garff West Valley Ford and Ken Garff West Valley Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT worked together to assemble 400 weekend meal kits for the USANA Kids Eat program!
These kits are full of non-perishable, easy-to-prepare food to make sure kids get enough to eat over the weekend when they can’t depend on school meals. 1 in 5 kids in Utah are food-insecure, so we are so grateful for the Usana Kids Eat program!
Our West Valley teams adopted two Boys and Girls Clubs in Murray and Tooele to ensure that the kids in those programs will have meal kits for the entire 52-week year! View more photos

Ken Garff Downtown Luxury - 8/25

For our latest We’re Hear For You event, employees from our Downtown Luxury dealerships (Mercedes-Benz of Salt Lake City, Ken Garff Volvo Cars, Alfa Romeo of Salt Lake City, Ferrari of Salt Lake City, Maserati of Salt Lake City, and Jaguar Downtown Salt Lake, and Land Rover Downtown Salt Lake) hosted bingo for the adults at The Neighborhood House! To protect the health of all involved, only fully-vaccinated employees were able to participate. It was a great time for all that participated and we’re grateful for organizations like The Neighborhood House who support our communities, specifically the adults who need some additional care during the day.
