Our Community Involvement

How Murray Honda is Giving Back
Giving is not just about making a donation. It's about making a difference.

At Murray Honda in Chilliwack, BC we're not just about selling cars and providing auto services. As a successful Honda dealer serving the Fraser Valley Regional District, we believe it is our duty to show gratitude by giving back to the communities that we serve.
Backpack Community Program
In the bitterly cold winter of 2012/2013 we launched our first community program after reaching out to the Chilliwack Bowls of Hope Society to find out how many local children were showing up to school in non-adequate winter coats. After discovering roughly 400 kids were in need of proper winter attire, we connected with like-minded businesses throughout Chilliwack to fully fund our first year program and make sure no child was left cold in the winter.

After the success of that program, we felt great and wanted to make an even bigger impact for local children.  We connected with the Chilliwack School District to find out if there were any other needs that were being left underfunded and learned the need for school supplies was extremely high. Upon further investigation we found the need was as high as 1,000 local students, with a staggering funding goal of over $40,000.00 to ensure that no child was left behind.

Our first call was to Shelley Howe, the General Manager at Staples Business Depot in Chilliwack who shared our goal of making sure that no child was missed. She ensured her entire team was on board with helping us reach our targeted goal, and Staples Chilliwack quickly became our official co-sponsor of the "We Got Your Back" Backpack Program:
Project Warmth Winter Program
Following the "We Got Your Back" Backpack Program, we have continued to work with the Chilliwack School District to identify and support other needs for local children. For our "Project Warmth" Winter Program we worked with the General Manager of our local Canadian Tire to provide over 700 Chilliwack students with proper winter footwear.  We can't thank John and his team enough for reaching out to every single Canadian Tire location in British Columbia to assist in fulfilling this order in full.

With our previous programs we have raised a retail value of up to $200,000 worth of goods to our community in a 3 year span! This is no small task and we could not have been able to fund these programs without the dedicated support of our sponsors, many of whom sign on for each program we start.

Since Murray Honda's arrival to the Chilliwack community in 2012, we have been incredibly empowered by the generosity and support of our city. Together we are making a better tomorrow for our future generation and we thank you all for your part in making this happen.
