2018 NEWS & EVENTS

Align with Thompson in the Fight Against Breast Cancer | October 1-31st

1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer. That's about 1.4 million who will be diagnosed this year. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Thompson Organization wanted to show support for survivors and those affected by it. For every 4-Wheel Alignment service, we will donate $10 to the Linda Creed Breast Cancer Organization.

Why did we choose this organization? The Linda Creed Breast Cancer Organization helps women locally, right here in our communities. The LCBCO, founded over 31-years ago, is dedicated to the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. LCBCO cover costs for free mammography screenings for uninsured/underinsured women in our communities, supporting patients every step of the way. The organization works with hospitals in our area.

"Without medical insurance coverage, these women often ignore well care and, too often, it also means ignoring the symptoms," said Fran Orodeckis, Development Director, Linda Creed Breast Cancer Organization.

The LCBCO is a grassroots effort, fundraising more than $300,000 each year.

"We hear a lot that people work full time just to have healthcare, then when you need it most, you can't get the help you need," said Orodeckis. "That's where we come in. We help to make sure everyone gets the assistance to get treatment."

During the month of October Align with Thompson in the fight against breast cancer. It's one way we can help make a difference, because 'we're in this together.'

 Give A Little Cuddle

Instead of celebrating a birthday with cake and candles, Russell Taylor, a Service Advisor for Thomspon Lexus Willow Grove celebrates its by giving back.

 "It started three years ago, I wanted to help those who needed it," said Taylor. "Now, it's turned into a tradition."

 When Taylor started collecting stuffed bears for his birthday he delivered the bears to area hospitals. This year he has decided to donate the bears to area police departments.

 "I think it would be great to have police officers hand out a teddy bear to kids in need," said Taylor. "They see a lot of things and maybe that bear can help a child who needs to be comforted in a time of need, that extra cuddle could go a long way."

 Taylor said the response for what's become a birthday tradition is always amazing. It's quickly spread on social media.

 "I get bears sent from all over the country, Colorado, Chicago, New York and South Carolina," said Taylor.

 Thompson Lexus in Willow Grove has decided to step in and help out its own. The Willow Grove Lexus dealership was a drop off-site for the teddy bears this past June. The bears were collected through the last few weeks of the month. Taylor delivered them to the Upper Dublin, Upper Moreland, and Abington Police Departments the following week.

"I love doing this to help others," said Taylor. "When given the opportunity we should all give back. Doing a little can go a long way and it makes celebrating a birthday that much more special, knowing I am helping to bring smiles to kids who need it."

Taylor said while he doesn't feel like sharing his age, he can share his love to give back. Next June help give an extra cuddle to a child in need and donate a bear to our Lexus in Willow Grove.

Cars & Coffee Debuts in Willow Grove

June 9th was the first ever Cars & Coffee held at our Lexus Willow Grove. Cars of all kinds pulled in bright and early to grab their cup of Joe and danish to show off their wheels. 

There was on display a 2012 Lexus LFA, one of only 500 made. Thompson is not new to hosting Cars & Coffee events.  

Stephanie Onimus, the Parts Manager at Lexus Willow Grove, said the crowd was great.

A New Set of Wheels

 June 26, 2018--It's been a year in the making, but without further ado, The Thompson Organization is proud to present the Doylestown Township Police Department with its first Motorcycle Patrol unit.

 "We are so grateful," said Sergeant Robert Jones, Doylestown Township Police Department. "Thompson went above and beyond our expectations."

 The Doylestown Township Police Department has three riders dedicated to this unit. Sergeant Jones said without The Thompson Organization's help in this purchase, the dream of having a motorcycle unit would still be a work in progress.  

"When I met with Vice President, John Thompson, and General Manager, George Wirth, a year ago, to start raising money for this process, I never imagined that they would donate the entire bike to the department," said Jones.

 "This is our community, this is our home, the police support us and we want to give back to help them," said John Thompson, Vice President, The Thompson Organization. "Seeing the joy in their faces over this makes it worth it."

"We were happy to help the department," said George Wirth, General Manager. "It's what we enjoy doing most, giving back to our neighbors." 

Sergeant Jones said this motorcycle allows the department to be more interactive with the community and approachable to kids.  

I drove through Kids Castle and the kids came running over to see it, they were just as excited as we were," said Jones.

 Jones has been with the Township Police since 2005. He spearheaded the idea of the motorcycle unit in early 2017. Jones and two others went to training for this last year. All have prior motorcycle experience. The unit is now patrolling the streets of the township.

 "We just can't thank them enough, we are very humbled by this," said Jones. "We can do everything we do in a police cruiser on this bike and help out with special events."
