Underriner Motors, Inc., announces the winner of a new van
Friday May 29, 2015 – Underriner Motors, Inc., was pleased to announce its giveaway of a new van to Vanessa (whose last name will remain undisclosed to protect her privacy) on May 28.

Underriner Motors made this offer under the auspices of a charitable program in which HRDC District 7 Community Action Agency collected candidate names. Contestants explained circumstances, trials and pressing needs, which would render a new van especially beneficial to them. Then a committee with representatives from Underriner Motors selected one grateful winner based on their testimonials written in essays. Among the hardships Vanessa’s family had endured was her 10 year old daughter’s diagnosis with a brain tumor 2 1/2 years ago.

William Underriner noted, “It helps our employees to do good for someone in the local community. And it speaks to the needs of someone who really needs a vehicle.”

Reid Garrett, a General Manager at Underriner Motors, observed, “I was part of the committee that chose the winner of our van giveaway. It was so difficult choosing, as all of the applicants were deserving of the gift. Several of us got choked up as we read the essays that were submitted, and we felt humbled to be able to impact a family’s life who needed a lift. I am grateful to work for the Underriners who do so much to help our community.”

“Underriner Motors advocates for business to address human and societal concerns for the common good,” remarked Ryan Setliff, the Marketing Manager. “We are a fundamental believer in the notion that economic enterprises serve people, not the other way around. Congratulations to Vanessa on winning her new van. I am reminded of the biblical adage ‘to whom much is given much is expected’ — and that’s a core value that William Underriner has enshrined in the operating philosophy of Underriner Motors, Inc., not simply in words, but in deeds. It gives me pride to be a part of an organization that strives earnestly to give back to the community and its people.”

Reporter, Dustin Askim, of KULR 8 was in attendance as were representatives of the Billings Gazette, and both agencies will offer more details in the local media about this touching moment.
