Galaxy Motors Shares the Giving Spirit




Over the holidays, our friends at Galaxy Motors donated holiday hampers stocked with gifts BBBSV to families to help them celebrate.

CAO Amy Jones and the team at Galaxy Motors team purchased gifts, wrapped them up and delivered them to BBBSV to be given out to local families before Christmas.

“We felt like little elves – we had a great time buying gifts and wrapping everything.” – Amy Jones, Galaxy Motors CAO

“It’s about giving back and sharing the Christmas spirit with other families. If we can help to bring a smile to someone’s face on Christmas, that is why we do it.”

Over the last 30 years, Galaxy Motors has expanded across Vancouver Island thanks to the support of the local communities. Amy and the team feel it is important to return that support by giving back to Island communities.

“Each month, we choose a different charity – we try to represent initiatives that are important to our employees. Just to give back to our local communities, it’s something that’s really important to be involved in and it feels good.” – Amy Jones, Galaxy Motors CAO

In addition to purchasing holiday gifts for BBBSV families, over the summer Galaxy Motors donated a portion of sales to support mentoring programs for children and youth in the Victoria Capital Region, Cowichan Valley and Central Vancouver Island.

Every $1 invested in our programs is returned as up to $23 to our local communities. With the guidance and support of a trusted adult mentor, our children have the confidence to realize their full potential and grow into happy, healthy young citizens.

The generosity Galaxy Motors extended to our organization over the holiday season meant so much to both staff and the families we serve. The holidays can be a stressful time for many and our families expressed sincere gratitude for the gifts they received this Christmas.” – Adrianna Kipp, BBBSV Mentoring & Big Steps 2 Success Program Coordinator
