SACRAMENTO, CA (October 28, 2020) – Price Simms Family Dealership Group has made a generous donation of $100,000 to The Salvation Army to support the nonprofit’s disaster relief efforts. The Salvation Army is on the ground before, during and long after a disaster. They are part of the communities in which they serve. This amazing gift will help the nonprofit serve those who lost everything in recent wildfires and ensure The Salvation Army is ready to respond to the next unfortunate disaster.
“Unfortunately, these disasters have become way too familiar in the past few years,” said Major Ivan Wild, Salvation Army Divisional Commander. “It has been a drain on our resources but thanks to this generous support we can continue meet the need. Price Simms Family Dealership is an example of family owned community minded business is all about—others. It is because of family like yours that gives us not only the resources to meet the need, but it also gives us a great moral boost and encouragement.”

“The Price Simms Family dealerships are committed to providing value, integrity, and trust to the communities we serve,” said Adam Simms, CEO Price Simms Family Dealerships. “We are so happy to support the Salvation Army in the work they do across the Bay Area.”
