Help Your Community

As a family-owned business, we know firsthand the importance of buying, living and being local. Through responsible business practices, we strive to be good stewards of our community and value giving back.

Kendall and its employees are proud to support the communities we serve. Kendall Cares is designed to give back through various partnerships and initiatives throughout the year. As your hometown dealer, we want you to know that community support is a cornerstone of our business. Browse our guidelines below to see how we can help.
