We have a long history of being involved with those communities that we serve. Over the past several decades, we have chosen charities that are important to our industry, our staff, our customers, and our communities. We have a strong belief in giving back – providing not just cash donations to local charities, but also services that represent our business to those in need.
In 2011, we began our involvement with the Recycled Rides Program which gifts repaired vehicles to needy families in our community. We have partnered with American Family and Progressive Insurance, as well as several of our vendors, to repair and donate vehicles to needy families in our area. Goff’s employees donate their time to repair the vehicles. The insurance companies donate the damaged vehicles and several of our vendors donate either materials or parts to make this project come together. Some of the recipients of these vehicles have been wounded war veterans and local families without reliable transportation.
Goff’s Gives Back this Holiday season
Thanks to our generous staff, we were able to donate over 400 pounds of food to the Pewaukee Food Pantry collected during Goff’s annual Fall Food Drive.
In December, employees from all 7 Goff’s locations contributed to the sponsorship of several children through the Christmas Clearing Council, providing gifts to families that could use a helping hand this Holiday season.
Goff’s Collision Repair Center is proud of our recognition by the Safe Kids Organization as a certified child safety seat site. The National Child Passenger Safety Certification Training program certifies people as safety technicians. These technicians conduct child safety seat checks where parents and caregivers receive hands-on assistance for proper use of child restraint systems and safety belts. Goff’s has been part of this valued program for over 15 years. Since several of the local fire departments no longer have certified installers on staff, this complimentary service has taken off in popularity, and our inspectors/installers perform these services on a daily basis at our Waukesha facility. This service is by appointment only and each inspection can take 20-30 minutes. Please call Daron at 414-708-1900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment.
This Time Tomorrow Foundation
Goff’s Collision Repair has been involved with the charity “This Time Tomorrow Foundation” since 2011, when Tony Goff was named “Man of the Year” by the Leukemia Lymphoma Society for raising nearly $60,000 for research and support for families affected by blood cancers. After this, Tony teamed up with Cory Zimmerman in creating a Foundation to provide direct financial support to individuals and families fighting all forms of cancers.
Goff’s Celebrated their 50th Anniversary by giving back to the Community
In 2017 Goff’s Auto Body celebrated our 50th anniversary in business by hosting a car show with all proceeds benefiting two of our favorite local charities. The Pewaukee Fire Department has always been near and dear to the Goff family’s heart. Members of the Pewaukee Fire Department helped build the original Goff’s location back in the 1960’s when Bob Goff was a member of the volunteer fire department. Our car show was able to raise over $2,500 for the Pewaukee Firefighter’s Auxiliary. In addition, we were able to collect and donate over 750 pounds of food to the Pewaukee Food Pantry.
Goff’s helped raise funds for ‘Pink Heals’ at our end of Summer Cars & Coffee event
Goff’s Cars and Coffee was held once a month this summer in the parking lots of our various shop locations throughout the Milwaukee Metro area. Goff’s celebrated the last event at our original location in Pewaukee by hosting the Pink Heals Firetruck and grilling station. Pink Heals sold merchandise and grilled out to raise awareness and provide support to those fighting the physical, emotional and financial battle against cancer. Thank you to all whom attend for a fun day out with family and friends and help Pink Heals raise awareness & money!
Goff’s Collision Repair Centers was able to offer 3 students of the WCTC’s Auto Technology program a Summer Internship this year. It brings us great joy as a company to be able to help invest in the careers of these up and coming technicians. We know we have helped someone gain new skills as they pursue their goals and career aspirations. Partnering with local schools is a priority at Goff’s!
Goff’s is committed to empowering our youth through the power of education.
In 2016, Goff’s donated welding screens to Arrowhead High School STEM program.
Distracted Driving Initiative
Goff’s Collision Repair Centers has joined a national effort to curb distracted driving by offering free, interactive, virtual reality-based presentations to local schools, civic groups, or any other organization interested in hosting educational and preventative sessions. This 45 minute presentation features reality goggles and activities in which participants experience the dangers and impossibility of safe driving while texting, multitasking, or engaging in other forms of distracted driving. The presentation was developed in partnership with AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign.
