Community Giving & Outreach
Tuttle-Click Automotive Group Donates to the City of Mission Viejo Animal Services Center.
The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center was recently honored by being chosen as the recipient of a large donation from the Tuttle-Click Automotive Group. This group chooses a worthy organization to partner with monthly, and they thought that our shelter would be a great place to help. Shirley, the group’s Marketing Director, said, “ We love our furry friends and don’t want to forget about them during these hard times.” We could not be happier! All six of the Tuttle-Click stores in Irvine, Tustin, and San Juan Capistrano held donation drives and encouraged both employees and customers to donate items from our wish list. They collected a lot of great stuff! They brought four large tubs filled with things we need: over 100 toys, 15 sturdy blankets, 8 large dog beds, 20 bags of treats, and much, much more! Pictured here along with Mission Viejo staff members are Tuttle-Click’s Vice President George Saad (on the left) and Operations Director Rich Rader (on the left). We would like to send an enormous THANK YOU to Tuttle-Click and their staff for the wonderful donations. Our homeless pets will love all of this great stuff!

Capistrano Ford supports our Troops
Capistrano Ford Team had a great time representing our dealership while supporting out troops by raising money for the “Socks for our Heros” program. Rich Rader, Tuttle-Click Fixed Operations Director, Pat Didonato (Capistrano Ford Parts Manager) and three Capistrano Ford long time customers did very well. The event generated enough money to ship another 18,000 pairs of socks forward to the men and women serving our nation. Hoorah! For more info visit San Clemente Marine Corps Support Group.
