STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — National Automotive Experts/NWAN was the main sponsor for the Cleveland Christian Home’s annual 5K Walk and Run for The Kids.
The event in total raised over $72,000 with the NAE/NWAN team raising over $59,000. Funds raised will go directly to the organization to assist in supporting their residential and community outreach programs.
“I have a sincere passion to volunteer and financially support the efforts of this organization,” said Kelly Price, chief executive officer of NAE/NWAN. “It has been a true honor to watch our growth as a company directly impact the vision and mission of the Cleveland Christian Home through our continued financial support. I personally commit to matching each donation from my associates or our clients dollar-for-dollar, whether its $1 or $1000.”
In addition to sponsoring the annual 5k Walk and Run for the Kids, the NAE/NWAN team supports the Cleveland Christian Home through events like Spirit Week and their Friday Jean’s Day, where Associates donate $2 each Friday if they wear jeans.
In addition, each year during the holiday season, the team adopts a family by providing Christmas gifts to children in need. They also volunteer their time wrapping the gifts each Saturday and Sunday in December, leading up to Christmas.
The Cleveland Christian Home specializes in helping troubled boys ranging in age from 7-17 years old. They counsel, educate and assist the boys in finding families to raise them, as well as helping them find some peace, happiness and love, said Price.
“The boys are very troubled and come from homes of incarcerated, deceased or unfit parents. Many of the boys go through counseling up to six times a day,” she explained.
