Adopt a Family of Marin. 
This year Sonnen Volkswagen has focused on building a stronger community, and we are extremely satisfied with what he have accomplished so far. None of this would be possible without the help of our customers, so we are extremely thankful. 
Adopt A Family is an integral part of the circle of protection for struggling families in our community. Our mission and actions are focused on increasing the stability of individual families. 

Circulo de Vida 

We had the opportunity to contribute to Circulo de Vida's Holiday Party and bring a smile to these kids.

Circulo de Vida offers assistance to parents who are suffering from a terminal illness by providing them guidance and emotional support to them and their families. ❤️❤️

Thank you Mario Morquecho and Conny Pardo for letting us be a part of a great cause.

Helping Fire Victims
3 members of our staff members decided to collect needed items for those affected by the fires in the Chico area. With the help of other staff and customers we were able to

Living Dying Project - Marin County
Cancer is no stranger to any of us - it has affected many of our friends, family members and co-workers. It is one of the causes for which Sonnen Volkswagen has tried to raise awareness throughout the year.

This month we have partnered with the Living/Dying Project to honor those who passed and those who are going through difficult times.

"The core work of the Living/Dying Project is about healing:
healing our body, our mind, and our spirit, healing that is inspired and motivated by the preciousness of human life itself and by the fact that we will all die but we do not know when."

We hope to raise awareness and funds for the Living/Dying Project to keep it moving forward. Sonnen Motorcars will make a donation to the organization for every car, new or used, that is sold throughout the month.

Contributions can be made directly to the Living/Dying Project by visiting
