“Two looming problems exist in the digital age. 82 million Americans lack access to a computer with Internet in their home, primarily because of cost. That’s the entire population of Germany. At the same time, 150,000 computers are disposed of every day in the U.S. human-I-T is a nonprofit organization that brings together these two problems to create one solution. We take in unwanted technology, fix it, and provide it to those in need, free-of-charge. human-I-T provides low-income individuals and nonprofits with technology, internet, and digital training. By reusing instead of recycling electronics, our team transforms E-Waste into opportunities for underserved communities, while promoting digital inclusion and online access. We work with corporations, government entities, nonprofits, and general public to achieve this goal.“
Patrick Dealer Group is happy to be a partner with human-I-T for their efforts and continue to donate all unused technology items to help their non-profit organization provide equipment to those in need. We’ve been partnered with human-I-T since 2019, and in that time we’ve donated:
an increase of 3M meals per month from last year at this time. Our goal was $4,000 but our continuous fundraising during the month of December has brought in $6,100 in donations to benefit our communities. That’s 152% of our goal reached.
On December 11, 2020, Patrick Dealer Group was proud to participate in the 18th Annual WGN Morning News Toy Drive benefiting the Chicago Park District. Although it looked a little different this year, the Patrick Dealer Group, as a whole, collected and donated toys for the less fortunate. We are proud to have participated in this event and look forward to it next year!

On October 31, 2020, the Patrick Dealer Group hosted our 1st Annual Trunk-R-Treat Trail. Our goal was to help bring some fun and exciting alternatives to Halloween this year, amidst the pandemic. Our marketing department decorated a special vehicle at each dealership and loaded it with candy for the youngsters to enjoy.
We hope you enjoyed it and we look forward to doing it again in 2021!
October 29, 2020 marked Patrick Dealer Group’s 2nd Annual Employee Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
All Patrick employees were encouraged to wear pink, donate $5 towards the fight against breast cancer, and take a department photo to show their support. We are proud to say that employees at each of our locations participated.
All donations collected were delivered to Gateway for Cancer Research, located here in Schaumburg, IL. Gateway’s vision is: “To shape a world in which a cancer diagnosis is no longer feared.”
Above are some photos collected of our successful day and we look forward to continuing to make an impact within our community for many years to come.

The Thyroid, Head & Neck Cancer Foundation’s (THANC) mission is to support the research and education in the early detection and treatment of thyroid, head and neck cancer, to advancing new therapies, and to alleviating the suffering and functional impairment of patients who undergo treatment. The THANC Foundation was incorporated in 2003 and quickly became the largest private funder of research in the United States for these types of cancers.
In 2009, THANC became the first U.S. member of the global Head and Neck Research Network (HNRN) and refocused research funding internally on collaborative initiatives as a member of this organization.
In addition to research, THANC funded continuing professional medical education through sponsorship of the Multidisciplinary Management of Head and Neck Cancer and Thyroid and Parathyroid Disease until 2011, when the 20th Annual Course was held. The Foundation supports the Head & Neck Oncologic and Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery, and Thyroid/Parathyroid Surgery Fellowship, a program accredited by the American Head and Neck Society.
THANC’s resources also focus on community awareness and education as well as patient outreach and support initiatives. Under the medical direction of Dr. Mark Urken, THANC is housed within the Institute for Head and Neck and Thyroid Cancer at the Phillips Ambulatory Care Center at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Medical Center.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying her legacy of hope.
