Wickstrom Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM is not just a car dealership. Yes, we have cars for sale, new and pre-owned. However, we are also a very active member of the community and surrounding cities. We believe in charity and using our influence to contribute to noble causes. This is all the more important with the holidays around the corner.

This year, we wanted to bring attention to Gigi’s Playhouse. This is a non-profit organization dedicated to the awareness of Down Syndrome. Its service includes providing free educational and therapeutic programs to individuals with Down Syndrome and their families.

Gigi’s Playhouse has multiple locations throughout the U.S., including several establishments in the state of Illinois. One of its recent Illinois events included a golf outing where we provided a custom wrap for a Jeep Wrangler to promote its cause.

We believe Americans are charitable by nature and treat the holidays as a time for giving back. We know there are a lot of worthy organizations, but why not give to a center with local headquarters? Whether you have a relative or know someone with Down Syndrome, you can become an active part of the group’s 30,000 members of all ages.

Down syndrome affects one out of every 700 people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Awareness is important because those with the disease are at an increased risk for respiratory problems, heart defects, and hearing deficiency. Thanks to advancement in technology, though, most Down Syndrome patients lead on to live healthy and productive lives.

This Christmas, give back by participating with Gigi’s Playhouse. We aim to be as active as we can throughout the area, and this is just one way we show our support.
