Pecheles Toyota has once again teamed up with Toyota Motor Corporation to donate $40,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain! Due to the annual collaboration of Pecheles Toyota and its partners, the Club has been awarded over $215,000 in the past six years.
“The investments made by Pecheles Toyota have helped us strategically expand to serve more kids, more often with a greater impact. We are committed to serving youth who need us most and providing them with a world-class Club experience,” said Theresa Gilmore, Chief Development Officer for Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain. Last year, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain served over 3,600 kids and teens in seven eastern North Carolina counties. “We are proud to report that 100% of high school seniors who attend the Club graduate on time with a plan for the future.”
Pecheles Toyota’s gifts will be used to support programming in three priority outcomes: Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles. In addition to providing these core programs, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain partners with the USDA food program. “Over 135,000 hot dinners and healthy snacks were served in 2017,” stated Gilmore. Contributions from Pecheles Toyota also help offset the cost of the feeding program to ensure meals are provided to Club members.
“Pecheles Toyota continues to partner proudly with Boys & Girls Clubs of the Coastal Plain because we truly believe what the leadership of their organization believes: that in order to create a better tomorrow for our community, we have to invest in our children,” Brian Pecheles, president of Pecheles Automotive, said. “It has been a joy to see the organization grow in recent years. We are excited to see what the future holds as they continue to serve our local children.”
