Arnold Motor Supply Raises $40,000 for Charity

Proceeds from the fundraiser were donated to Tori’s Angels, a foundation helping children with life-threatening medical challenges.

Arnold Motor Supply and several aftermarket channel partners raised $40,000 leading up to the company’s 32nd golf and leisure event in mid-September. Proceeds from the fundraiser were donated to Tori’s Angels, a foundation helping children with life-threatening medical challenges, the company says.

”Tori’s Angels changes the lives of children and families across Iowa and beyond,” said Eric Johnson, managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply. “The son of one of our team members was accepted as the foundation’s 89th sponsored child. Alongside our valued channel partners, we were able to raise enough to help approximately eight more families.”

Arnold Motor Supply explains Tori’s Angels pays for all medical and travel expenses not covered by insurance. Each child is supported from the date of acceptance until his/her 19th birthday.

Channel Partner Recognition

Arnold Motor Supply said it also recognized key channel partners during its annual event. Vendor of the Year was awarded to BBB Industries for the outstanding value they bring to the stores and distribution centers. “We partnered with BBB on a new category this year and saw immediate results,” said Brad Edwardson, vice president of business development at Arnold Motor Supply. “Once inventory was in place, the BBB team kicked off extensive training and forty-two scheduled days of fieldwork. We couldn’t ask for anything more from a partner.”

Brian Bouwkamp and Craig Johnson of The Heartland Group were named Reps of the Year by the company. The Heartland Group represents Rotary wheel service products and related automotive and industrial equipment. “Our sales pros have the utmost confidence in Brian and Craig. Their customer service on the selling and support side is why we’ve seen triple-digit growth in that category,” said Edwardson.

A new award was created this year to recognize partners working alongside Arnold Motor Supply as they expand their store locations and distribution points. Russ Wilshusen of Schnair Sales was named the Agency Partner of the Year for always going above and beyond, including helping with new store setups. “It doesn’t matter the job, Russ jumps in to help. He’s everywhere we need him to be and we appreciate his constant dedication to our company,” said Johnson.
