Jared Glover and the Jim Glover Chevrolet team are proud of their achievement in being awarded Chevrolet Dealer of the Year for the past three years. Jared is pictured with the awards and a special wrapped Silverado that will be seen at special events this summer.
Jim Glover Chevrolet has been awarded the Chevrolet Dealer of the Year Award for three consecutive years – 2011, 2012 and 2013. This year’s presentation was made in early June. Mr. Glover thanked his complete team of employees for their conscientious efforts in upholding values that have made the dealership the great success it is today. The prestigious award is an accomplishment presented to a select few as a symbol of exceptional performance for outstanding sales, customer satisfaction, and service and involvement within the community.
“We thank Tulsans for their confidence in our dealership and for providing us the opportunity to be involved in many great programs like Folds of Honor,” said Jared Glover. The Folds of Honor Foundation is a program rallying our nation to ensure that no family is left behind in the fight to preserve American freedom. Through scholarships and other assistance, the organization gives back to spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service to our country. Family members are provided healing, hope and an opportunity for dreams to be made possible through corporate and individual support. The vision is for every spouse and dependent of a wounded or fallen service member to have the financial opportunity to pursue higher education. It is an ongoing tribute to our brave men and women who defend the liberties and peace that we enjoy.
Jim Glover Chevrolet hosted its first Military Month in May 2013. “We made a donation for every vehicle sold, new or used, during the month of May resulting in a donation of $70,000 to Folds of Honor,” said Jared. “We repeated the program in June of this year and will soon have the results.”
Jim Glover Chevrolet has also created a Special Patriot Edition Silverado that is branded with Folds of Honor embroidery and exterior badges. This is an ongoing program that provides a $600 donation to Folds of Honor for each Special Edition Silverado sold.
Jim Glover Chevrolet has a special, graphic-wrapped Chevy truck supporting America, our troops and the Folds of Honor program. The truck is scheduled for summer events in the area that include several car shows. It has a huge “piggy bank” in the bed of the truck where public donations are welcomed if you are interested in supporting Folds of Honor.
“We’re dedicated to our involvement with the community,” said Jared. Jim Glover Chevrolet was the main sponsor of Rockets Over Rhema in June. They will be a sponsor of Hunger Action Month with the Oklahoma Food Bank this September. They also host an annual toy drive for Toys for Tots. Last year, in just one day, in conjunction with the Corvette Club and Camaro Club, they filled 14 truck beds with toys for area youth.
Jared says the Glover family and the Jim Glover Chevrolet team express a sincere “thank you” to the entire community for their trust and for allowing them to be involved in such worthwhile programs.
