The International Cars, Ltd. (ICL) family of dealerships invited its customers and community to join them this past March for their 3rd Annual First Responders Sales Drive. The dealerships, which include Honda North in Danvers, MA and New Hampshire’s Dover Chevrolet, Dover Honda, Audi Stratham, and Porsche Stratham, offered first responders and emergency personnel employee pricing throughout March, which is “American Red Cross Month”. In addition to employee pricing, for each vehicle sold, the dealerships donated $100, totaling $10,000 in donations, to support the Disaster Action Team of the American Red Cross of Northeast Massachusetts.
“ICL is delighted to support the American Red Cross through our 3rd Annual First Responders Sales Drive,” said Marshall Jespersen, President and CEO of International Cars, Ltd. “Every day, our local police, firefighters and EMS teams put their safety on the line to help others in crisis, which is why ICL and its employee-owners take pride in supporting the American Red Cross and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership with them."
The American Red Cross of Northeast Massachusetts has held its Charter since May 20, 1933. The chapter serves a population of over 749,000 people in the county of Essex. In 2012, it responded to 64 local disasters providing assistance to 120 families. The chapter's Disaster Action Teams (DAT) are on call around the clock to respond to local disasters that mostly happen one family at a time. They provide emergency assistance, supplies and comfort, as well as teach disaster preparedness in the community. http://www.redcross.org
ICL's community involvement is an ongoing commitment through recent contributions such as February’s Food for Friend’s drive for local food pantries. For more information on ICL and its dealerships, please visit www.iclautos.com.
