The Children’s Cabinet in Orange County presented its “Business Spotlight Award” to Reed Nissan and its team members for September.
The award is presented to a company whose primary function is not in the child welfare area, but has taken great strides in helping the community.
“It’s an honor and privilege to present the team at Reed Nissan with this award for September,” said Tina Morgan, Circuit 9 Community Development Administrator, Department of Children and Families Reed has gone above and beyond in their support and are doing amazing things for our foster youth.”
Morgan said that Reed was recognized for its annual Cars For Kids Giveaway of free vehicles to deserving foster young adults, as well as working with any area foster youth to purchase a car from the dealership at cost and helping them secure financing if needed.
Over the past two years, Reed Nissan has donated two new Nissan vehicles, including paid taxes, to a pair of deserving students who are currently part of the foster care system in Central Florida.
Reed Nissan works closely on a number of projects with Community Based Care of Central Florida, which oversees the region’s foster care system. The Reed family in Orlando and general manager Aaron Hill have personal connections to adoption, foster care and mentoring.
“Our work with the region’s foster care system is incredibly important to us, and we are humbled to receive this award,” said Hill.
Twenty-five dollars from each Reed Nissan car sold is designated for Friendinreed.com, a special fund that enables the dealership to support such worthwhile programs and community organizations. The Spotlight Award was presented to Reed Nissan at the September 30 Cabinet meeting at Orlando’s Juvenile Assessment Center.
Reed Nissan is located at 3776 W Colonial Drive in Orlando.
