Charles Gabus: A Dealership that Cares

Here at Charles Gabus selling new and used Ford vehicles isn't our only mission. We know that our success comes from our community and we make every effort to return the goodwill we have been shown in the past 50 years. Every year in July we have an event called Gabus Cares. Our staff helps pick 4 random Charities to donate to. We collect $100 per vehicle sold throughout our dealerships and present the charities with a check at the end of the event. $100,000 total is given out. Each of the Charities receives a check for $25,000. 

Here is a quick list of organizations we are proud to have helped over the years:

Wildwood Ranch, Des Moines Choral Society, Urbandale Historical Society, Blank Children's Hospital, Boy Scouts of Mid IA Council, State Historical Foundation, Blank Park Zoo, Moingona Girl Scouts, Des Moines Metro Opera, Hope Ministries, Make A Wish Foundation, Hillis Elementary, Botanical Center, YMCA Partner Youth, Moore Elementary, Freedom 4 Youth, Music Under the Stars, Beacon of Life, Des Moines Art Center, Youth Emergency Shelter, Food Bank of Urbandale, Des Moines Playhouse, Childserve, Civic Center, Living History Farms, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Jester Park Exceptional Riders, Animal Rescue League, Des Moines Symphony, Salvation Army, Science Center of Iowa

Additionally, Every year in December we adopt multiple families through the "Children and Families of Iowa Organization" and make sure they have all the presents that we can provide through employee donations and a matching donation from dealership. We are proud to have had such a profound effect in our community, and humbled for even being given the opportunity.
