The Jeep brand has always believed in supporting American winners, and according to Jeep East Texas, that’s one reason it’s partnering with USA Basketball to support this country’s Olympic round-ball efforts, while also showcasing the Jeep Wrangler as the Official Vehicle of USA Basketball itself. But Jeep also believes in supporting American winners like Steven Diaz, of Columbia, S.C., and Denise Moore Toth, of Cleveland. They were recently honored in Jeep’s “6th Man” and “6th Woman” Facebook contest to recognize two valuable community team members always ready to come off the bench and start “serving others in their communities through personal sacrifice, humble spirit, integrity, courage and leadership.”
This year, they were:
- Steven Diaz—A veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Diaz was so severely injured in the war that he was unable to return to active duty; instead, he dedicated himself to helping others from his Columbia, S.C., community suffering from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
- Denise Moore Toth—Toth became a committed advocate for those in need after she lost her job in 2007, and now cooks and provides meals to the homeless in Cleveland, and also runs a charity-based ministry that provides them with clothing.
Jeeps For Sale In CT told us both Diaz and Toth will receive $20,000 from Jeep for their efforts—which will go to charities of their choice.
“The Jeep brand is proud to honor these individuals who have gone above and beyond to give themselves, their time and energy to improve the lives of others,” said Mike Manley, president and CEO of the Jeep Brand. “It is a privilege and an incredible inspiration to support those who use their power with a purpose to serve their community in a meaningful way.”
The folks at Jeep Dealers Palm Harbor congratulate the winners!
