Sherwood Park Chevrolet Mental Health Initiatives
Customs Takeover Event
Sherwood Park Chevrolet stands as more than just a dealership; it is a beacon of genuine concern for the well-being of its staff and community members. Through a range of initiatives, resources, and programs, Sherwood Park Chevrolet underscores its dedication to creating an environment where individuals not only thrive professionally but also find solace in a community that genuinely cares about their mental health.
Each year, Sherwood Park Chevrolet is a sponsored guest in the Customs Takeover Event that displays hundreds of jaw-dropping customized trucks, exotic head-turning sports cars, and unique and rare vehicles from across Western Canada. This event has become an annual event that raises money towards local charities. In 2023, we raised $45,000 towards the Mental Health Association!
First Respose to Fashion
Sherwood Park Chevrolet has solidified its commitment to community well-being by proudly sponsoring the “First Response to Fashion” event. 2023 was the first year Sherwood Park Chevrolet sponsored this event that raises funds towards PTSD research for first responders and front line workers.
A focus on promotion and prevention
Starting with Canada’s youth, Well-being Canada is helping to build a healthier future generation. Our K-12 program empowers students with the essential skills and tools they need to build resilience, foster self-care habits and translate knowledge into impactful action. As we incorporate social-emotional learning and mental health literacy into the core curriculum nationwide, we break down stigma and equip our youth with formidable competencies, championing their lifelong well-being.
And watch for new resources for the family and workplace in 2024!
