Columbia In The Community

Columbia ParCar Florida is proud to sponsor and contribute to the local community. Below is a list of organizations we have sponsored and/or contributed to.


Operation Shoebox
We were founded in 2003 in an effort to send support, snacks and much needed personal care items to our troops deployed outside of the USA and we encourage citizens to support their fighting men and women deployed overseas in these dangerous times. [We have donated 2 carts for them that they have raffled off for drawings on these carts. They send packages overseas to all the soldiers.]

Marine Toys for Tots Foundation
Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity is the fundraising, funding and support organization for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.

Marine Corps League, Inc. РColonel Phillip C. DeLong  Detachment #1267
Included in the purpose of this detachment is to provide charitable assistance to our community. One of the ways in which we serve the community is through the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. [Had golf outing where we had a hole in one contest to win a cart.]

American Cancer Society
Together with our millions of supporters, the American Cancer Society (ACS) saves lives and creates a world with less cancer and more birthdays by helping people stay well, helping people get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back. Bring in a coupon and we will donate $10.00 on a normal service call to that organization.

Relay for Life – The Villages
Relay for Life – Lady Lake Area
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

American Legion Post 347
We are here to serve veterans. For God and Country [Had a golf outing where we donated a cart for a hole in one.]

Hope for the Warriors
Our mission is a promise that the sacrifices of the wounded across military service branches and throughout the nation will not be forgotten, nor their needs unmet. Our many have been implemented to fulfill this promise.
Hope for the Warriors Golf Classic. We are donating 2 carts for the hole in ones.

H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute
H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute has made a lasting commitment to the prevention and cure of cancer, working tirelessly in the areas of patient care, research and education to advance one step further in fighting this disease.

On April 9th, 2012 at 8:20 am, the Miles for Moffitt mileage challenge began with Charley Smith at the wheel of the freshly charged Columbia ParCar Eagle. The Eagle “was driven by five cancer survivors who took turns driving it,” said Pete Wahl, chairman of the Villages Health System Foundation, the organization responsible for raising the necessary funds to purchase equipment for the Moffitt Center.

The mileage challenge ended 80.6 miles later after four different cancer survivors took a turn at the wheel. The golf car and its police escort visited most of the unique communities in The Villages. “We are pleased with our performance today. The Eagle traveled more miles today than a normal driver is likely to ever need to go on a single charge,” said Todd Sauey CEO of Columbia ParCar. It made several stops at each of the town squares where booths had been setup to continue efforts to collect additional pledges and raise awareness about the Moffitt Cancer Center’s plans.

The winning guess and pledge was made by Joan Miller of The Villages. She guessed 80.5 miles and is now driving around in the very same vehicle used in the “Miles for Moffitt” event.
