In 2010, AMOCO decided to expand its giving mission by creating a ‘Together We Can Do Good’ program. The idea included that $25 would be donated to local Galveston County food pantries for every auto loan financed from a participating dealership. In addition to the donation, canned goods were also collected at the dealerships for each of the pantries.
The ‘Together We Can Do Good’ program was rebranded in 2014 to ‘Together We Can Lend a Helping Hand’ and again to what it is today, ‘Create Change.’ The Create Change program includes the original idea of donating through booked loans but escalated into matching 1 percent of a variety of eligible loans and donating it to participating local non-profit organizations.
Up until December 2020, the Create Change program has donated over $200,000 to participating local non-profit organizations within our communities.
Starting 2021, our Create Change program will be restructured but will continue to be one of the many ways we ‘pay it forward’ to our communities. New information will be coming soon! Please check back for updates.
