Emmaus Community received donation from Chevrolet
May 20, 2003
Century III Chevrolet in West Mifflin was one of 15 Pittsburgh-area Chevrolet dealerships that presented checks totaling $86,000 to local nonprofit organizations at a ceremony at the Chevrolet Amphitheater at Station Square.
Century III Chevrolet donated $4,000 to the Emmaus Community. Chevrolet Motor Division contributed an additional $4,000 as part of its national community initiative, Chevy R.O.C.K., which stands for Reaching Out to Communities & Kids. The $8,000 Chevy R.O.C.K. grant will support the Emmaus Community's around-the-clock respite care for 20-25 local special needs children. The Emmaus Community is dedicated to bridging the understanding between the broader community and people with disabilities.
Chevy R.O.C.K. matching grants are awarded to qualifying dealer-supported nonprofits that serve 6-18 year-olds and address important community needs. Pittsburgh Chevrolet dealers helped to link inner-city teens with adult mentors; modernize a school computer lab with state-of-the-art equipment; rebuild a local park and playground; send disabled and disadvantaged youth to unique camp experiences; provide college scholarships to disadvantaged youth; and much more.
