Dealers have always been known for their charitable giving, partnering with food pantries, sponsoring local baseball teams, and most recently supporting hospital staff and first responders. Last month, we launched our Driving Difference contest as a way to celebrate and reward those helping out in their communities. We asked dealers to share on social media what they’ve been doing to spread positivity and use #DrivingDifference. We received entries from dealers across the country and, after weeks of anticipation, we are thrilled to announce our winners!
