Legacy Auto Group – Making a Difference in the Community

When it comes to stepping up to the plate and hitting it out of the park, Legacy Auto Group is an absolute professional.
 
There is no doubt that car lots in rural communities are an integral part of the economy, and Legacy Ford is all of that and more. Legacy Ford continues to not only see to it that their customers are pleased with their purchase, but that the community is taken care of, time and time again.
 
Their latest community contribution is two, 2013 passenger vans with room for 12.
 
“We saw a need,” said Chris Huxoll, of Legacy Ford. “We loan them out to community organizations to help transport people where they need to go.”
 
The vans are usually spoken for every weekend by a school group, sports team, or community organization.
 
“The EOU sports teams have used them, the La Grande High School, and last year’s Union High School graduating class used them for their senior trip to the coast,” said Huxoll.
 
Most recently the Elgin FBLA borrowed one of the vans, which made it possible for the group to attend the Oregon Leadership Institute in Bend.
 
“Legacy has always shown support to our chapter through this donated van and Drive4UR School Program,” said Elgin FBLA Advisor Peggy Anthony.
 

 
Legacy Auto Group has long been known for their community involvement. “We like to focus on the kids,” said Huxoll. With events such as Drive4UR school, Little League, and Drive to Give, Legacy Auto Group continues to be a valuable community partner.
 
The list of community dedication continues once the snow hits the mountains.
 
“Legacy does a great job providing transportation for skiers/riders to Anthony Lakes,” said Chelsea McLagan, Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort marketing director. “The transportation piece is difficult for many, especially for kids not yet of driving age. Providing transportation in shiny new vehicles is a win for both parties! We love getting more skiers/riders to Anthony Lakes! Legacy’s dedication to providing transportation is a great way to support the La Grande community snowriders. Anthony Lakes works to build and maintain community partners, to connect more people to the lifelong sport of skiing/snowboarding.”
 
Legacy Auto Group is one of those businesses that continue to make a difference in the community in so many ways.
