Community Involvement The Sullivan Auto Group

The Sullivan Auto Group Logo


John L Sullivan

John L. Sullivan's involvement in the community began over 40 years ago. Today, he leads and encourages all of his employees to participate in philanthropic activities in our community. For each dollar our employees raise with their fund raisers, Mr. Sullivan matches dollar-for-dollar.

The John L. Sullivan Employee Charity Group's primary purpose is to improve our local community through community activism. We accomplish this goal by organizing fundraising events throughout the year. The funds derived from these events are distributed to local organizations that provide services and/or opportunities to our local youth, families, women with children and small infants, homeless men and women, and other less fortunate individuals.

The employee group has partnered with various organizations in the Sacramento/Roseville area to impact the social, economic and environmental needs of the communities in which we operate. Our employees also contribute their valuable time by adopting needy families for the holidays, helping veteran groups, filling food bank pantries, providing hundreds of filled backpacks with hygiene products for the homeless, and much more.

We are proud to be part of the Sullivan Auto Group family of giving!

Golden State Collision Repair Centers' Community Benevolence Event

In an annual holiday-time event, the Golden State Collision Repair Centers' community benevolence events have benefited twenty-five local families with restored vehicles over the past six years.
"Each year, there are numerous vehicles that are written off by either the owner or the insurance company. Often these older vehicles are simply in need of mechanical or body work to get them road-ready and safe to drive. Following the merger between Bodycraft and Golden State Collision Centers, we are pleased to embrace this tradition of giving back to our communities," said Bruce Mackie, President of Golden State Collision Repair Centers. "We are thrilled to continue the gesture of helping people who have suffered economically and are working toward bettering their lives. Our hope is that this gift will be a door opened to hope and a brighter future for the recipients and their families."
