Hudiburg Chevrolet and Ally Financial Partner to Help Military Families

Jun 24, 2013

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., June 24, 2013 – During the month of July, Hudiburg Chevrolet and Ally Financial will challenge the community to raise money for Operation Homefront Oklahoma, an organization that provides emergency financial assistance to military families.

“Oklahomans give back. It’s in our blood and it’s what we do,” said Mike Myers, general manager of Hudiburg Chevrolet. “We invite the community to join us in supporting the military heroes who have given up so much for our freedom.”

Starting Monday, July 1, Hudiburg Chevrolet will donate $20 for every new car sold and $1 from every oil change directly to Operation Homefront, and the dealership encourages customers to match the donation. In addition, Ally Financial will match the total giving at the end of the month and present the donation to Operation Homefront at an event celebrating local Oklahoma military families in August.

“We are proud to partner with Hudiburg Chevrolet to support such an outstanding program in the Oklahoma community,” said Mike Kimmel, regional vice president, Ally Financial. “It is a privilege to rally behind all the deserving military families that sacrifice so much for us every day.”

Operation Homefront is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was formed in 2002 to support the families of deployed service members after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Since then, Operation Homefront has given $128 million in emergency assistance to military families, which is granted within 72 hours and comes in the form of checks, emergency food, critical baby items, home repairs, furniture and other household items.

“Our goal at Operation Homefront is to help as many military families as we can, and we’re grateful for every dollar that helps make that happen,” said Carol Herrick, Operation Homefront Oklahoma and Arkansas executive director. “This donation from Hudiburg and Ally will allow us to make sure that our service members and their loved ones are taken care of. We are very thankful for their continued support.”
