- Mitsubishi Motors South Africa initiates Valentine’s Day drive
- Dealerships in all 9 provinces reach out
- Love and appreciation shown with cards, balloons and chocolates with Valentine’s hampers
JOHANNESBURG. – Mitsubishi Motors South Africa’s national dealers went out of their way over Valentine’s weekend to reach out to medical workers fighting in the front lines of the word-wide Corona pandemic.
Although the ancient Romans may have been responsible for the name of this modern “day of love”, local MMSA dealers reached out to doctors, nurses and other medical staff all over South Africa on Valentine’s Day.
One of the Mitsubishi Motors’ private dealerships, Carter Mitsubishi Motors Melrose, shot the first Cupid’s arrow showing their love by reaching out to the nurses at Netcare Rosebank with Valentine’s Day hampers.
Hot on their heels were the staff of Mitsubishi Empangeni who showed their love and appreciation to the brave nurses at Melomed Cardiac Hospital in KwaZulu-Natal with Valentine’s Day hampers.
“Thank you for all your hard work and stay safe!” the Empangeni Mitsubishi staff wrote on their thank-you card.
Not to be outdone were the sales and service personnel of Ronnies Motors Mitsubishi East London who showed their love and appreciation to the brave nurses at Beacon Bay Life Hospital, sending over some Valentine’s Day Hampers with chocolates and a bouquet of red roses.
The same was done by Mitsubishi Motors Hatfield staff who spread their love and appreciation as a show of goodwill to the brave nursing staff at the Steve Biko Hospital with Valentine’s Day Hampers handed over in red gift bags. “Thank you for all your hard work,” they wrote on a massive Valentine’s card.
Red balloons, a bouquet of chocolates and other edibles and some individual roses – red, of course – were sent to the weekend staff of the Medicross Boksburg by the local Mitsubishi Motors Boksburg dealership, part of Mitsubishi Motors East Rand.
Reaching out to Mpumalanga, the Mitsubishi Motors Ermelo branch showed their appreciation for the medical frontline workers at Mediclinic Ermelo.
Heading west, the admin and other staff at Mitsubishi Motors Mahikeng and Mitsubishi Motors Lichtenburg pooled their resources to deliver Valentine’s Day hampers of appreciation to the staff at General De La Rey Memorial Hospital in Lichtenburg, also known as the “Town of Light”.
Another outreach among MMSA’s 59 dealerships in the country came from Mitsubishi Motors Klerksdorp. The local MMSA crowd got hearts racing by delivering Valentine’s Day hampers to staff at the Wilmed Park Hospital in the North West town which is also known as the original capital of the then Transvaal Province.
Rounding off the Top 10 of MMSA dealerships all over South Africa to reach out to medical workers putting in long hours, day and night – non-stop throughout the year – was Mitsubishi Motors Witbank that attended to medical staff at the Life Cosmos Hospital.
“The work emergency workers do, is often taken for granted. But when Covid-19 hit the world, it was medical workers in the shadows of crowded buildings who were literally in the front line, fighting an unknown enemy that has turned the world upside down,” says Nic Campbell, General Manager of Mitsubishi Motors South Africa.
“The Mitsubishi Motors South Africa Valentine’s Day outreach is our way of thanking the faces who are always behind a mask – not just during this pandemic. We salute you!” concludes Campbell.
