WLR Automotive Group’s purpose statement is “Changing Lives, One Neighbor at a Time.” In keeping with this commitment, the company supports many local causes throughout the year. For nearly a decade, the company supported “Adopt a Family”, in partnership with Hillcrest Elementary School. Hillcrest has a strong guidance and support program that emphasizes on the six “pillars” of “Character Counts!” – caring, citizenship, fairness, respect, responsibility and trustworthiness.

Adopt a Family contributors provide gifts for children and families in the community during the winter holidays. The recipients range from 1 to 20 years old, and they all provide a “wish list” of items they would like to receive. The gifts are a variety of items, including but not limited to; school supplies, warm clothing, games and toys. In 2018, WLR provided gifts for a family living out of their van. The company not only provided gifts, but also current tags for their vehicle and money to help toward rent. In 2019, the company provided items for 28 children.

Kira Bowers, WLR Human Resources Business Partner, works closely with Hillcrest’s Frederick County Public School Liaison, Norma Claro, to help make this mission a success. Kira said, “The first year I helped with Adopt a Family, I got goosebumps after witnessing the outpouring of generosity from all our employees. WLR and the entire team really help make a positive impact on our neighbors. We all look forward to helping support this every year.”
