The Charles Barker Automotive Team made a decision in 2014 to change their annual giving campaign from the United Way to their very own charitable foundation, Charles Barker Champions for Kids. They recognized that they could ensure most of their fundraising dollars would go directly to the charities that were a good fit for the mission of building a better community by supporting its children to successful lives.
The employee pledge campaign is renewed every September at the Annual Rally for Kids. All 350+ employees gather together to hear from some of charities on the importance of their support and to recommit their annual pledge. The Charles Barker Automotive employee support for the community through their charity foundation has grown every year through the pledge campaign, direct donations and volunteer hours.
