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