Creating a Tradition of Service

#AMESGORED

    
We loved having the opportunity to show our support for the 2018 Story County Go Red for Women Dinner by learning Hands Only CPR! Our team takes pride in the organizations we support and the #AmesGoRed movement is just another fantastic example.

AMES CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: 2018 LEADERSHIP SERIES

The Ames Chamber of Commerce has developed a Leadership Series, "Developed to help you SOAR in 2018!" Looking forward to helping inspire the community one speaker at a time! We are proud to have had the opportunity to host the kickoff of this years' series with motivational speaker and founder of Headbands for Hope.

  

Jess Ekstrom is the founder and CEO of Headbands of Hope, a company she started as a junior in college in 2012. Headbands of Hope has donated thousands of headbands reaching children's hospitals across the United States and 15 countries. On March 28, 2018 at the Gateway Hotel & Conference Center, we had the awesome opportunity to sponsor the kickoff of the 2018 SOAR Leadership Series with special guest speaker, Jess Ekstrom!





THE IOWA JEEP SHOW

   
Who doesn't love having the opportunity to bring out their Jeep or Off-Road capable 4x4 and try it out on an outside obstacle course? We had such a great time supporting this awesome weekend event! From watching our friends take on the courses, taking them on ourselves and seeing all the awesome vehicles that made it out - it's hard to think of a much better way to spend a weekend! The time, work and effort that is put into planning these events are something all attendees can appreciate, whether you're there to drive or watch! 
If you missed it this year, join us next year! We're already counting down the months! 




AWARENESS MATTERS

 
In the month of October, Deery of Ames Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has  donated $20 for EVERY VEHICLE SOLD in the month of October to the William R. Bliss Cancer Center! We stand firmly next to our roots and culture as a growing family here in Ames, which is why we do our best to continuously help support the people who help to support us. We know how important every mother, daughter, grandmother, and aunt is in every family, so we hope to provide some assistance in our efforts to give back to the amazing woman in our lives.  
This is the start of a wonderful tradition that is near to our hears and we look forward to carrying on for years to come!

THE ISU CYCLONE STAMPEDE RODEO

    
We loved having the opportunity to present Rodeo Queen, Kaeli Sedlak, with our donation to the ISU Cyclone Stampede Rodeo! What a fun foundation to support! We had a great time watching the talent of these young individuals last Fall! 



LET'S FIGHT HUNGER TOGETHER

United Way of Story County holds an annual LIVE UNITED Food Drive in the spring each year. Since 2011, the number of students receiving free/reduced lunch has increased by 16%. Once summer comes, these kids lose access to these routinely provided meals. The statistics of hunger in our community is haunting. LIVE UNITED helps fight this by collecting food and monetary donations that in turn are distributed throughout the local food pantries. In 2016, this collection helped bring an additional 1,000 pounds of food to locations throughout our community. 

We proudly stay involved as a local drop spot for this great organization and invite you to join us! Stay tuned for the next annual food drive and let's ban together to fight hunger in our community! 




KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

We had the great pleasure of hosting over 100 8th graders from Gilbert Middle School at the dealership on March 21, 2017. The day was full of all things cars or trucks. We spent time with each of them to as they were able to learn about how to buy a used car and how financing and credit play a major part in acquiring new wheels. They learned the importance of setting a budget, what wants versus needs are, how to research for the right vehicle as well as what to look for when choosing a dealership to do business with.


CONGRATULATIONS!
