Findlay Auto in Post Falls has consistently supported a variety of non-profit organizations in our region for many years. Some of the events and organizations that Findlay Auto supports are:

Raise the Bar Win a Car for students from Post Falls High School, Lake City High School, and CDA High School. Students with a 3.5 or better GPA get one entry into the contest and those with perfect attendance will also get a second entry to win a new car from Findlay Auto. All three schools combined had 150 qualifying students, 14 with perfect attendance.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Coeur d’Alene, also held annually in more than 600 communities nationwide. Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s® is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. This inspiring event calls on participants of all ages and abilities to join the fight against the disease.

Holidays and Heroes: With shopping lists ready, police officers, sheriff’s deputies, and firefighters were paired with specially-selected local children to go shopping at Walmart stores to purchase Christmas gifts for their family members. Other volunteer shoppers secretly chose gifts for the children.
