Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation received a significant donation from No Bull Employee Charities. The money was raised from voluntary payroll donations of participating employees at Earnhardt Auto Centers.
“Many people don’t realize just how much free care is needed at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital,” said Jayla Hall, Media & Promotions Coordinator, Earnhardt Auto Centers, in discussing the “No Bull Employee Charities – Employee Contributions” initiative from Earnhardt Auto Centers. “We’re told that about half of the children are from families with little or no medical insurance.”
The Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation assists with raising the money needed for pediatric care. It also helps families with meal vouchers, transportation, and more.
“Many of our employees are parents, and we all know how scary it is when kids are sick,” said Jayla. “We only hope this money can help make life easier during the stress and strain of a child’s hospitalization or long term illness.”
The “No Bull Employee Charities – Employee Contributions” program chooses four charities each year where quarterly donations will be sent; voted on by Earnhardt employees. The donation to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation represented the money raised from voluntary payroll deductions by Earnhardt Employees in the months of April, May and June, 2022.
“Our employees are committed to making our community a better place,” said Christopher Kerr, VP of Marketing & Communications at Earnhardt Auto Centers. “Our local, family-owned company has a long tradition of giving back, and we are proud of our employee’ efforts on behalf of the Phoenix Children’s Hospital.”
In the past, donations have gone to a wide variety of charities, including the hospital. These include Paz de Cristo, Hospice of the Valley, United Food Bank, Phoenix Animal Care Coalition 911, the Armed Forces Relief Trust and the Arizona Humane Society.
