Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale re-launches charity initiative

Posted

During these unprecedented times, Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale is re-introducing a charitable initiative that will help Valley charities.

Now under a new name, D.R.I.V.E, which stands for Donations for Recovery & Investment that are Very Essential, will kick off a year-long campaign focusing on supporting and highlighting local causes. The initiative is a continuation of Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale’s historic commitment to supporting organizations that improve our communities.

In the past Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale has supported such causes as the Jones-Gordon School, Scottsdale Fire Fighter’s Association, Homeward Bound, Arizona Science Center, HopeKids, Health Network Foundation, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Mayo Clinic and Valley View Leadership.

“As we all experience unprecedented events, Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale is grateful to be in a position to assist organizations that provide services that are essential, now more than ever. We are so excited to announce that we will be donating $5,000 each month towards local causes and charities that have been significantly impacted by recent events and to begin the initiative, our initial donation will go to support the Fresh Start Women’s Foundation,” said Co-Owner Anita Theisen.

The dealership selected Phoenix-based Fresh Start as the first charity to help this year due to a rise in domestic violence that has been a tragic result of the pandemic.

“The Fresh Start Women’s Foundation is thrilled to receive the $5,000 donation from the D.R.I.V.E. Initiative, created by their friends at Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale, located across from Scottsdale Fashion Square. The funds donated will be used to support the critically-needed programs and services offered to the women served during this time of crisis,” said CEO Susan Berman.

To help Fresh Start Women’s Foundation go to freshstartwomen.org/donate.
Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale is at 4725 N. Scottsdale Road.
