This Fab Five (Jenelle Pierce, Kristen O’Brien, Dawn O’Keefe, Melanie Murphy, and Tina Philpott) recently entered a video in the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup Employee National Challenge and were successful on winning $5000 to be donated to a charity of their choice.
The ladies decided to split up the prize and donate $1000 to each of five charities that were close to their hearts on an individual basis.
The recipients of the $1000 cheques were:

However, one story stood out from the rest. Katie Snow is a 21-year-old Memorial University Commerce student from Carbonear, who was just 13 when her dad was diagnosed with ALS. Katie had to grow up pretty fast, working multiple jobs from a young age and paying her way through school. Her mom, Wendy, wrote us a letter about it, and we wanted to help. Katie was the lucky winner of our contest and Jonathan Hickman was on hand to present Katie with her tuition for a year. We can?t imagine a more deserving young woman. Congratulations Katie!

Hickman Automotive Group is always proud to support Bridges to Hope and their Bag to School Program. This exciting program provides much needed support to students in our communities. Each year has been a tremendous success, largely due to Hickman’s support in donating 500 school bags to the program through our 3-week test drive promotion. Each of our branches participate in this worthwhile event, with the school bags being distributed in their local communities. Many thanks to all those involved, including our volunteers from the CCC, who donate a Friday evening to helping Bridges to Hope fill these bags for distribution each year, and to our summer student, Haley Peters, who did a stellar job representing Hickman Automotive Group on VOCM during their Block the Bus event. Thanks, everybody!

RUGGED ROCK HARLEY-DAVIDSON IS GOING BEARDLESS, DOING GOOD

harley-davidson going beardless
 
Mile 1 Harley-Davidson® is committed to supporting the community and people in need. This year, they decided to do the unthinkable and SHAVE their bountiful beards to raise money for the Community Food Sharing Association.

With an escalating tier of beards at the shop, their employees decided that the amount raised in donations would determine how many guys would shave. If they made it to the ultimate goal of $10,000, their resident wizard, Jake, would shave his face fur, allowing us an opportunity to see his chubby cheeks. We are happy to say that they exceeded their goal and presented the Community Food Sharing Association with a cheque for $10,200.00, in addition to sponsoring a family for the holidays.

Congratulations to the organizers for all of their hard work, and to those who participated in any way (especially those who are finding our cold winter just a little chillier this year).

Hickman Automotive Group – Driving Awareness for Organ Donation

The week of April 23rd-29th is National Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week. Approximately 4,500 Canadians are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant and many more are waiting for tissue transplants. Organ and tissue donation awareness is a primary focus for Hickman Automotive Group in 2017.

The Hickman family has been on both sides of organ donation and transplantation. In 2015, Jonathan Hickman was given the gift of life thanks to a kidney transplant. His sister Kim, was the donor. The Hickman family knows first-hand the importance of organ and tissue donation.

“Hickman Automotive Group is proud to partner with the Provincial Organ Donor Program and the Canadian Transplant Association in helping spread the word about Organ/Tissue Donation awareness in Newfoundland And Labrador. Our aim is to help ensure that the people of our province are aware of how they can make an informed decision and possibly give the gift of life.”
-Jonathan Hickman, Vice-President of Hickman Automotive Group and Transplant Recipient.

Join Hickman Automotive Group as we raise awareness for organ and tissue donation this year. All this week our stores will be lighting up their dealerships in green, the official color of organ and tissue donation. One donor can save up to eight lives and one tissue donor can enhance the lives of up to 75 people. Now that’s powerful. Becoming an organ donor is as easy as updating your MCP application.

IN THE SPRING OF 2016, JONATHAN WON 6 MEDALS AT THE CANADIAN TRANSPLANT GAMES - Newfoundlander captures six medals at the Canadian Transplant Games! Hickman Automotive Group is extremely proud of their very own, Jonathan Hickman, who recently captured six medals at the Canadian Transplant Games in Toronto, Ontario. Jonathan has always had a competitive edge, however, kidney complications throughout his childhood continued to plague him and in 2015, doctors determined that he would require kidney transplant surgery. Fortunately for Jonathan, his sister Kim was a perfect match. In early 2015, with the support of the entire Hickman family, including the management and staff of Hickman Automotive Group, Jonathan and Kim set out for Halifax on their incredible transplant journey.In the spring of 2016, Jonathan registered to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain and the world's tallest free-standing mountain. However, his excitement quickly diminished when his doctors warned that such a climb for an organ recipient, might compromise his health. In his quest to remain active and healthy, he soon learned of the Transplant Games and was quick to jump on board to represent his province.
PARTICIPANTS AT THE TRANSPLANT - Participants at the Transplant Games may choose up to five individual medal events to participate within their age group, however, true to his competitive nature, Jonathan participated in five events and successfully captured SIX medals! The combined times of his swim, run and bike ride were good enough to capture gold in Triathlon status. Jonathan also earned two Silver medals, (5 km run and the 50M freestyle swim), as well as three Gold medals (200M freestyle swim, the 5 km and 20 km cycling events). This impressive finish is a fine display of Jonathan's drive and desire to enjoy life to its fullest. Jonathan has already begun training for the World Transplant Games, taking place in Spain in June 2017

Hickman Automotive Group CONTRIBUTES $10,000 TO THE CANADIAN RED CROSS

As the fire continues to rage in Fort McMurray, Alberta, there has been a tremendous outpouring of support from people across the country. Canadians are collectively coming together to show their care and compassion and the people from Newfoundland And Labrador are leading the way. Many of our residents are deeply affected, with friends and family, who have moved west to the oil sand country for work, now being left homeless.

 
Hickman Automotive Group is announcing their support to the community with a donation of $10,000 to the Canadian Red Cross in support of emergency assistance for those affected by the wildfire in Fort McMurray. Financial donations to the Red Cross will allow them to identify the needs of the residents of Fort McMurray and then appropriately provide the proper resourcing for them to be able to recover from this devastating event.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the residents of Alberta during this time of devastation and we are proud to provide this support for their recovery efforts. #AlbertaStrong
