Contributing to our community and having a real, positive impact on those we serve is important to the team at Jim Sampson Motors. During the past year, we’ve been fortunate enough to give back in a number of ways, and to a number of causes that are close to our hearts. Read on and learn about the recent impact we’ve made on our community as well as our commitment to public engagement and charitable causes.
Jim Sampson Motors: business with conscience
Since 1997, the Jim Sampson team has upheld a strong commitment to maintaining a positive and long-lasting influence in Sydney, NS and outlying areas. Delivering excellent customer service and honest business is only one part of how a dealer integrates itself into the community it serves. In an age of increased competition, it’s important for players in our industry to diversify their fronts of appeal. For us at Jim Sampson, the decision to be an engaged and active player in supporting and promoting the health of our community was a no-brainer. Leading by example, our owners, Dan Keough and George MacEachern made a $25,000 donation in support of a planned renovation of the Whitney Pier Youth Club. At Jim Sampson, we recognize the positive influence that organizations like this have on area youth, and we’re more than happy to contribute and sustain such initiatives.
For the past five years, our dealership has upheld a commitment to match individual donations (up to $10,000) during the annual Cape Breton Cares Radiothon which raises support for the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation. A healthy community is a happy community and, since our community is the very heart of our business, we’ve view this ongoing commitment as one of our most important and most valuable.
The Jim Sampson brand of community conscience can be found at all levels of our business, all the way down to the caring individuals who make up our team. Evidence of our business’ commitment to providing ongoing community stability, even at the molecular level, lies in individual staff payroll deductions made in support of the United Way.
Jim Sampson Motors: business that cares
As you can tell, we don’t refer to ourselves as your Nova Scotia Volkswagen Dealer simply because it sounds good. Not only do we put our money where our mouth is, we underpin all forms of our support with real interest and engagement in the causes we support, throughout Cape Breton. Whether it be providing stability for individual area-athletes to help them along in their respective journeys to national and international-level competition or maintaining ongoing sustenance to numerous foundations and charity events throughout the reason, the message is the same: Jim Sampson Motors is your Nova Scotia Volkswagen Dealer because we care about you.
