The year of Hindsight is beginning to disappear in the rear-view mirror as it yields to a year of possibilities in every direction you turn.

Here at CADA, our office will be closed Friday, January 1, 2021, so our staff can usher in the new year, in our own individual ways.

We wish you a very safe and Happy 2021!

Celebrating the season

Dealers help those in community by donating vehicles 

Phil Long Ford partners with nonprofit to give SUV to working single mom

Hands of The Carpenter (Hands) and Phil Long Ford of Denver are working together to solve a vehicle crisis issue for a Jefferson County woman in need.

Soraya Rivera, a working single mother of two children ages five and ten years old, will receive a 2008 Ford Edge from Hands tomorrow, December 23 at 2:30 pm at Phil Long Ford of Denver’s dealership location.

Wanting to give the vehicle to Rivera before Christmas, the partners worked together to offer her a car that would fit her needs and family.

Mountain States Toyota gives vehicle to student in need

Denver City Councilman Chris Herndon (Stapleton, DIA) mentors late-age teenagers in job preparation and life skills. One of his mentees, an 18-year-old woman had a job and needed a vehicle to get there. Thing is, she had terrible credit. 

Herndon turned to Josh Hanfling, with Sewald Hanfling Public Affairs with the dilemma. Hanfling, who lobbies on behalf of CADA's members in Denver, turned to Mountain States Toyota's Tim Van Binsbergen for help.

Van Binsbergen gave her a late-model vehicle, then paid the sales tax and license fee for her, so she could drive the car. Hanfling and Herndon then paid the insurance on her car, making for her a Christmas she could only have imagined.

Larry H. Miller Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram 104th

Brent Wood, general manager with Larry H. Miller Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram 104th launched the dealership's Five Days of Giving with a $10,000 donation to the Tennyson Center for neglected, abused and traumatized children. 

Wood said, "We can't let these kids and families down who suffer from abuse, neglect and trauma. Anything we can do to help the cause and get these kids and families back on track, especially in these tough times."

Thanks Phil Long Ford, Mountain States Toyota and Larry H. Miller Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram 104th for your generosity this season! You've changed families' lives through your generosity!

Thanks for your 24 donations!

Wow! Thank you for your generous 24 donations last week! I'm super excited that with fewer than three weeks until we close the book on this year, you are CRUSHING it in December!

We just hit 844 donations for the year, bringing us to 5,337 all-time donations. That’s remarkable considering the roller coaster year we’ve had. Check your lot, and join the season of giving by donating any of those old clunkers to the Foundation this week!
