This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. When COVID hit, Ken Garff Automotive Group wanted to help the community weather the fatigue of the pandemic. Jason Frampton, Utah’s market president, is here to tell us more about how Ken Garff has continued to give back.
Ken Garff was built on a heritage of supporting small businesses and communities in need, so we planned 42 days of giving back to those in the communities we serve. We started last May by supporting individuals and buying from local businesses during the pandemic.
Since then, we’ve been able to provide items such as supplies for refugees in Utah County where we bought supplies and helped them adjust to life in Utah. We’ve provided groceries for seniors, lunches for hospital staff, free tanks of gas for random commuters, flowers for teachers and free passes to open entertainment venues like Hogle Zoo and much more. This has been so incredible that we’ve gone beyond the original 42 days of giving and we haven’t stopped.
Our employees have been incredibly moved and invested in giving back. Through this pandemic, we are all in this together. We’ve seen the tears and expressions of gratitude first-hand, and it has truly affected each of us for the better.
Ken Garff Auto is built on the strength of community service, and they are still looking to help others. Go to kengarff.com/hear-for-you for more information. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
