Lynn Meadows receives $5K grant from CarMax
A new used car retailer on the Coast is driving home an effort to continue inspiring kids and families involved in the arts.
The new CarMax Store officially opened its doors in Gulfport Wednesday and celebrated by awarding a $5,000 grant to the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center.
The children’s museum offers educational opportunities for the younger generations.
CarMax Location General Manager Mike Marriot says they’re so excited to be a part of the growing community. “One of the things we really work on at CarMax and are really proud of is our involvement in the community. And we do community events throughout the community with nonprofit corporations. Lynn Meadows is one of the organizations we’re supporting here in Gulfport, as well as the Make-A-Wish Foundation here on the Coast. And it gives also our team an opportunity to get out and work together and really make a difference wherever our stores are.”
The new CarMax is located at 11155 CarMax Way in Gulfport near the Cowan-Lorraine exit.
