Giving Back – Bowman Style

The Bowman team takes pride in being a part of the Clarkston community – and, as part of Clarkston, we participate in local events, sponsor sports teams and charities, and make an effort to be a part of the heart of Clarkston. Through these efforts, there are four charities that we hold near and dear to our heart and take an active role.

055Clarkston SCAMP is a local organization that is a “special camp for special kids,” providing an environment for children who are not able to attend traditional camps to go. Since Bowman Chevrolet started in 1984, our founder John Bowman supported SCAMP – it holds a special place for us too since one of our own, Mimi Ridings (Bowman), attended this camp in her childhood. SCAMP has six major fundraisers throughout the year, and we are proud to be a sponsor in each!

Grace Centers of Hope is an organization based in Pontiac, MI that provides help and services to the homeless. Established in 1942, Grace Centers of Hope has become the largest faith-based outreach providing services to the homeless and disadvantaged. Based on Christian values, Grace Centers of Hope seeks to help every individual and family get back on the right track and become productive members of society through outreach and services.  Bowman Chevrolet has contributed to Grace Centers of Hope for a number of years and have more recently become involved in sponsoring their major fundraising events.

????????????????????????????????????Easter Seals is a national organization providing outreach and services to individuals with disabilities. The Bowman team has supported Easter Seals for over 20 years, combining our twice-yearly Customer Appreciation Day with their $50,000 and Corvette giveaway over the last 12 years. Through our partnership with the local Easter Seals chapter, we have built a relationship that helps raise tens of thousands of dollars for Easter Seals annually.

Clarkston Area Youth Assistance (CAYA) is a unique youth assistance program that the late John E. Bowman began working with over 20 years ago. CAYA is administered through the Oakland County family court and works with the court system, educational system, individual cities and townships. The youth assistance program operates on the intention of preventing juvenile delinquency, neglect and abuse through community involvement. CAYA’s programs and events work on this premise and reward both individuals and the community through its efforts. We follow in Mr. Bowman’s footsteps with his passion for this organization and look forward to working with them for many more years to come.

Our community involvement is an important aspect of who we are and what we represent. We are grateful to support these wonderful organizations – its our pleasure to serve them as they serve our community.
