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 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.
Pewaukee Food Pantry & Firefighter’s Auxillary
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.
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.
