Greensburg Restaurant Week was launched by the Greensburg Community Development Corporation (also known as Think Greensburg) and now happens biannually. It is a week-long celebration that highlights and promotes small local restaurants that participate, and brings the community together by encouraging people to try new restaurants. Participating restaurants promote a week of specials at a reduced or fixed price.
Sendell Volkswagen is a proud sponsor of Greensburg Restaurant Week because we feel that it is important to support other local businesses in our community. We also appreciate that it encourages the community to come together, and allows people a fun way to enjoy the fantastic dining options in Greensburg at an affordable price.
The basic mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas. Our Sendell VW filled a VW Beetle with so many gifts to donate for kids this year. These donations will be given out to kids in the community to make this holiday more memorable.
The Greensburg YMCA would like to convey our sincere gratitude to Sendell Motors for making it possible for local children to attend summer day camp at the Y. During the summer months, child care is an essential need for many families, but for children living in disadvantaged households, it can be a struggle to afford. Our child care programs seek to nurture the potential of all children and youth, regardless of income or background, but we must rely on community support to make this possible. When we reached out to Chris Mohler-King, she graciously agreed to help. With generous sponsors like Sendell Motors, we were able to provide financial assistance for Summer Camp to local families, allowing these children the opportunity to learn new skills, develop new interests and build lasting friendships. This year, we were thrilled to welcome back 151 campers. Sendell Motors helped make this possible, and we appreciate their commitment to improving the lives of children. Thank you for making summer great for all!
Blackburn Center’s signature event, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, takes place each April in Greensburg. Over a thousand participants from Westmoreland County and beyond come together to support Blackburn Center’s mission to end domestic and sexual violence, and to raise awareness about these issues. Some wear high heels, while others prefer sneakers. Some carry signs, and others walk without signs. One thing they all have in common is a desire to speak out against gender-based violence. Since 2015, Sendell Motors has teamed up with Blackburn Center to make this unique event a success by becoming a major sponsor. The Walk provides Blackburn Center with much-needed funding to continue the services victims of violence count on, and to expand our community engagement in strategies to end gender-based violence. Blackburn Center provides a hotline that answers 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, supportive counseling and therapy, a shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children, support during legal and medical proceedings, and more. Having the endorsement of Sendell Motors – through financial support and hands- on work the day of the event – showcases their commitment to Westmoreland County and the efforts of Blackburn Center. The Sendell team understands the importance of our services in the community, and they are dedicated to work with us to end violence and abuse.
