What Do Chevy Nascar Driver Jimmie Johnson & Herb Connolly Auto Group Have in Common?

Posted by Herb Connolly in News

They both love to contribute to deserving charities in need! We are so impressed with the Jimmie Johnson Foundation’s assistance to children, families, and communities across the country. We are proud to have Jimmie Johnson as a Chevrolet Nascar driver! He is certainly a role model and dedicated to giving back. Just what we’d expect from a Chevy driver :)

The Jimmie Johnson Foundation is currently teamed up with Lowes and Samsung to create the “Helmet of Hope”, which gives fans the opportunity to nominate their charity of choice to be featured on Jimmie’s Helmet for the Pepsi 400 race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. Organizations that are nominated must focus on programs for children. Selected charities will receive a grant of $10,000 and be featured on Jimmie’s helmet for the Pepsi 400!!!!

So far the following charities have been chosen:

-The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation

-The Foundation for Faces of Children

-Hunter’s Hope Foundation

-Beads of Courage

-Feeding America

These foundations make a huge impact through research and raising awareness about medical conditions such as Krabbe disease, Leukodystrophy, cleft palate, and spinal muscular atrophy, as well as providing supportive care programs for these and other illnesses.

Check out the moving video on this page, and nominate your favorite children’s charity while you are there!
