In celebration of the Santa Rosa store opening, CarMax donated $5,000 to the Redwood Empire Food Bank in Santa Rosa. CarMax associates recently volunteered with the Food Bank, and selected them to receive the grant to help support their mission to end hunger in the community.
The CarMax Foundation is also providing a $10,000 grant to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Sonoma County. Funding from the grant will help expand an intramural sports program where members learn the importance of practice, teamwork, sportsmanship, encouragement of others and more. This expansion will add more sports and allow an additional 3,000 youth at 20 Clubs the opportunity to participate in this free program. Support for the Boys & Girls Club also came at the recommendation of the Santa Rosa associates.
