The Gift of Life is fortunate to have the endorsement of Philpott Motors, a company whose philanthropic endeavors have helped the program make a difference in the lives of countless Southeast Texas women. Since 2013, Philpott Motors has annually supported the Gift of Life Women’s Health Program, which provides uncompensated healthcare services throughout seven Southeast Texas counties, including the provision of free clinical breast exams, mammograms and diagnostic testing, when needed. The company is dedicated to furthering the Gift of Life’s free healthcare services for medically underserved women and encouraging good health.

Through the leadership of General Manager Bob Thewman, Philpott employees engage in meaningful activities that fortify and strengthen the Gift of Life’s mission of saving lives. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Philpott team members annually transform the dealership into a festive pink setting for a special breakfast provided to nearly 100 local breast cancer survivors and their loved ones. This year, the dealership will host a Step Up to Cancer to illustrate their physical and financial commitment to the Gift of Life as they “Step Up To Cancer” by collectively taking the same number of steps (5,405) reflective of their contribution to the Gift of Life, while also presenting the organization with a check totaling $5,405.

Since 1950, Philpott Motors has set the standard for excellent customer service and superior quality. Incorporating a philosophy of compassion and care into its business model, Philpott is regionally recognized as an extraordinary company that enriches and improves the community.
