Tom Powell, retired Manager of Quick Lane® at Colonial Auto Center, is the Founder of the Kids Lift Foundation, providing toys and books to children in Charlottesville and the surrounding counties. It all started in 1988 when Tom perched himself 80 feet up in a bucket truck and stayed there until people donated 1,000 toys. Three decades later, Toy Lift has become an annual event raising over 20,000 toys for local kids in need.

Tom’s is just one example of our company’s commitment to our community. QuickLane is part of Carter Myers Automotive, an employee and family-owned business serving Central Virginia since 1924. We strive to help those most in need in the communities we serve and are proud to have been awarded the 2013 Hovey S. Dabney Award for Corporate Citizenship. CMA has over 500 employee-owners  with 13 dealerships in Central Virginia, the Central Virginia Auto Auction, and QuickLane. For more information, please visit www.CMAcars.com.
