(Redding, Ca.) A traditional Christmas – decorations around the house, a tree brimming with ornaments and gifts, a special, hearty meal to cap it off— may be just a dream for families struggling to make ends meet.
That’s why Northern Valley Catholic Social Services (NVCSS) has worked for more than a decade to give these families a more joyous Christmas. Through their Adopt-A-Family program, generous citizens and local businesses and organizations provide clothing, food, and toys to north state families who have fallen on hard times. Last year, nearly 700 families were adopted through the program.
Continuing its own Christmas tradition, SJ Denham Chrysler Jeep & Tire Center in Redding and SJ Denham Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram in Mount Shasta are partnering with the NVCSS Adopt-A-Family program. For every vehicle sold, SJ Denham will donate $50.00 to Adopt-A-Family. “This is our fourth year participating in this fantastic program in Shasta and Siskiyou Counties. The employees and management of SJ Denham are proud to support Adopt-A-Family and work with NVCSS to help those in need this Christmas season,” says Ryan Denham, General Manager at SJ Denham.
SJ Denham wants to contribute to the hope of the holidays, and believes that when people come together, the community is strengthened for everyone. By helping a parent buy a warm coat for their child, or giving a family the chance to have a Christmas dinner, burdens become lighter and families are able to do more together in the community.
Ultimately, everyone at SJ Denham participates. “Donations come from the proceeds of the day-to-day business,” Denham says, “so all of our employees work together to make a difference. We always want to give more than we did the previous year.”
SJ Denham is a third generation family-owned and operated full service auto dealership. They understand they are only as successful as the community that supports their products and the services they provide in Northern California. They are dedicated to giving back to the community by donating funds to local charitable organizations.
