Thinkin’ Rincon” is more than a motto, it means Rincon Chevrolet is thinking about the well-being of the community. So, when customers buy a vehicle it benefits many community initiatives supported by Rincon.

According to Jesse Greathouse, executive manager, giving back to the community is a priority. “We consider Rincon Chevrolet first and foremost a business that is here to serve the residents of Effingham County,” he said. “If there is a project or organization that needs support in our area, we are all in,” added Mr. Greathouse.

This philosophy is why Rincon Chevrolet created their “Partners Program.” This is an initiative dedicated to supporting various community charities and organizations. “Simply put, we support what is important to our customers. When you buy a new vehicle from us, we take the approach that you have invested in our business, so to reinvest with you, we will contribute $150.00 back to any civic, religious, academic or youth organization of your choice,” said Mr. Greathouse.

This includes supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month with their “Join the Fight” campaign. Throughout October, Rincon Chevrolet donates a portion of every sale to Susan G. Komen Foundation to help support patients and survivors.

Rincon Chevrolet has also taken a fun approach to supporting local school athletics. They will donate $3 to the Athletic Department for every point scored by the high school football teams of South Effingham, Effingham County and New Hampstead. In addition, every time a fan buys a new Chevrolet, Rincon will donate $150 to the department.

Since the inception of their “Partners Program,” Rincon Chevrolet has contributed thousands of dollars to benefit high schools, a variety of civic organizations and youth organizations. These include the Cub Scouts and their Pinewood Derby, gymnastic clubs, FFA and Treutlen House, just to name a few.
