Anderson Animal Shelter Receives Support from the Chicagoland Dealers Care Program & St. Charles Toyota
The Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) teamed up with local dealer St. Charles Toyota to donate $1,500 to the Anderson Animal Shelter of South Elgin as part of the association's Chicagoland Dealers Care program. While charities and civic organizations know that their local automotive dealer is an integral part of the community and deeply involved in its organization, the dealers often don't receive the recognition they deserve. The Chicagoland Dealers Care program was created to help provide that support and advocacy.
St. Charles Toyota has been a financial supporter of the Anderson Animal Shelter, longtime advocates for the humane treatment of animals through direct care, education and community outreach programs. With the support of the Chicagoland Dealers Care program and the dealer community, the Anderson Animal Shelter is able to help fund programs to provide exceptional and ethical services to mistreated animals.
The Chicagoland Dealers Care program began in 2008 as an effort to donate to local charities year-round, as the association raises more than 2 million dollars for 18 charities each year during the benevolent First Look for Charity black-tie event.
