The Fred Martin Auto Group plays an active role in the Akron area community. Here are some of the incredible local groups we work with!
Human Society of Summit County
The dealerships proudly sponsor The Humane Society of Summit County, providing all of the food used by the facility for over 25 years. The Humane Society of Summit County, located on Darrow Road in Twinsburg, makes it their mission to care and advocate for the abused, neglected, and abandoned animals of our community. If you would like to find out more or inquire about adopting an animal, just give them a call at (330) 487-0333.
Norton City Schools
In 2019, we were involved with Norton City Schools for their We Roar. Together. shirt campaign. Students are encouraged to wear their shirts to bring awareness to mental health, anti-bullying, and overall wellness for this amazing District-wide initiative.
We are also involved in community D.A.R.E. programs that work to positively influence children by educating them on the negative impacts of drug and alcohol abuse. Over the last 20 years we have donated 20 “D.A.R.E. Mobiles” to the Norton Police Department , the Hartville Police Department , and the Summit County Sheriff’s Department.
Toys for Tots Program
Every Fred Martin location takes part in the annual U.S.Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Over the years, thousands of toys have been donated by employees, community members, and customers just like you, making the participation of Fred Martin in this program a success.
Hyundai Hope on Wheels
We also proudly support Hyundai Hope on Wheels, an incredible organization benefitting pediatric cancer research. Hyundai and its U.S. dealers created Hyundai Hope On Wheels in 1998. From the sale of every new vehicle, a donation is made to fight cancer. To date, more than $172 million and over 800 research grants has gone to support research at Children’s Hospitals across the nation.
ACCESS, Inc., is a homeless women and children’s shelter in Akron. They work with mother’s in need to provide them education and work training so that they may better provide for their children. Since 2016, Fred Martin Superstore has sponsored their wildly popular annual event “The Jewelry Box”. Gently used jewelry is professionally displayed and every piece is $5 during this well attended weekend event that takes place annually in November.
Feed, Spay, Love
Comptroller, Margaret Kinsinger is the founder of the not for profit rescue organization “Feed, Spay, Love,” an animal rescue in the Akron area that works to nurse animals back to health and place them in loving homes. They also trap, neuter and release feral cats back into the wild. They are completely funded by donations, and every dollar goes towards continuing rescue and treatment efforts for animals that may otherwise go unassisted.
