Granger Chevrolet 5k Walk/Run raises $14k for United Way

Special to The Leader

Granger Chevrolet hosted its 3rd Annual 5k Walk/Run benefiting the United Way of Orange County on October 15th and the turnout was amazing. With over 200 participants, Granger Chevrolet raised $14,343 for the United Way which exceeded the 2015 donation.

The Mission of the United Way of Orange County, Texas is to improve people’s lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community. United Way supports organizations that provide a wide range of vital social services throughout Orange County Texas. Giving to the United Way is an easy and convenient way to support many good causes throughout the year.

To put on an event of this magnitude, it is always necessary to have loyal and giving sponsors. This year the sponsors stepped up and donated some great prizes for raffle drawings. Granger Chevrolet give away an I-pad, Apple Watch and a prestigious Pro-Bowl Jersey signed by Orange Texas’s own, Earl Thomas.
