Back in 2014 a tornado destroyed much of Mayflower and Vilonia - and Gwatney borrowed a local bank's grill and wrote "free food" on a paper sign. They cooked for Survivors and First Responders at the scene. This concept grew from there as a way to give back to the Community and market ourselves at the same time. Today Gwatney has a full blown grilling truck and trailer and routinely cooks for schools, Police Departments, the Air Force base and more.
Jacksonville Boys and Girls Club
Many Gwatney employees grew up in the Jacksonville Boys and Girls club - and many have their kids enrolled there today. When they lost a considerable amount of city funding - Gwatney stepped in to help - and still do on a regular basis. #GoGwatney
Gwatney Buick GMC became involved with the UAMS MammoVan mobile Mammography program back in 2015 and has promotoed and hosted the van on the Buick GMC lot several times. Breast Cancer Awareness is a cause near and dear to Gwatney's heart - as our Buick GMC spokesperson, Penny Cobb Burkhalter, is a breast cancer survivor.
Gwatney is a proud sponsor of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Light the Night" walk in downtown Little Rock. Gwatney Buick GMC handles the "tailgating" section of the event and is honored to be a part of this special cause.
Gwatney has long been a supporter of high school athletics - and was a big part of the renovations at the Sylvan Hills High School Stadium, and have also been involved with the Cabot High School Stadium and the Jacksonville North Pulaski Titans.
This organization has gone above and beyond in our community! They have come out to our school twice now and provided a delicious dinner to our staff and families, leaving enough for our staff to enjoy additional meals after they have gone. Their generosity and time commitment they have given our school is amazing, especially grilling the best beef hot dogs I have ever had out in the blazing heat for our open house last Friday. We appreciate them so much, and will definitely be going there for our next vehicle purchase!! Thank you for all the support, Gwatney!! - Jennifer Lambdin
