For 35+ years the Darrell Waltrip Automotive Group has partnered with numerous charities, sponsored hundreds of community events and invested over one million dollars back into the community we have called home since our inception in 1986. Below are just a few of the events we host and/or partner with each year to continue our support of the individuals and families that make up this extraordinary community.

Darrell Waltrip Automotive Group's Drive Away Hunger Challenge

The Drive Away Hunger Challenge was started in 2013 by the Darrell Waltrip Automotive Group as a fundraising event partnering WCS High Schools with GraceWorks. Since then the challenge has grown to include Franklin Special School District & Williamson County Elementary and Middle Schools and has collected over one million pounds of food for food pantries throughout Williamson County.

Darrell Waltrip Automotive Group's Hometown Heroes

Nominate your local hero and tell us why you think they need to be recognized. Darrell Waltrip chooses one hero each month and gives a $1,000 donation to a charity of that hero's choice.

Hands on Nashville

When a tornado devastated parts of Nashville on March 3, 2020, we knew we wanted to do something big to help with the recovery effort.  We partnered with Hands on Nashville, a local organization focused on meeting community needs through volunteerism and donated our largest one time gift to date- $120,000.

Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program

Since 2002, the Darrell Waltrip Automotive Group has partnered with the Salvation Army to host an Angel Tree during the holidays. This employee led event gets everyone involved- from the porters to the sales people, service advisers and service technicians. The number of children DWAG adopts has grown, with almost 100 children adopted each year.
