Olmsted Campus have always unlocked style, class and unmatched customer service.

Now they unlock a new benefit.

Healthier kids.

Bernie Moreno Companies today unveiled “Keys for Kids,” a yearlong campaign to support children’s initiatives at Northeast Ohio’s three large hospital systems: Cleveland Clinic, The MetroHealth System and University Hospitals.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of every new and used vehicle purchased at Mercedes-Benz of North Olmsted, Porsche of North Olmsted and Cleveland Motorsports will be donated to the “Keys for Kids” program, the first of its kind in Northeast Ohio.

During the first round of the program – the months of June, July and August – donations will help fund MetroHealth’s School Health Program, which provides health care to students inside 13 Cleveland public schools.

Later in 2018 and into 2019, the second and third rounds of “Keys for Kids” will benefit Cleveland Clinic’s Children’s and University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's.

“Whether it’s a second-grader getting an annual check-up during her school day because of Metro, a 5-year-old boy getting groundbreaking cancer care at the Clinic or a preemie thriving at Rainbow, our community’s children deserve the gift of the best health care possible,” says Bernie Moreno. “‘Keys for Kids’ is a way for us and our clients to help provide that gift.

“The clients of Bernie Moreno Companies love luxury, style and our award-winning customer service, but they also love helping our community. We are proud to give them the chance with “Keys for Kids,” Moreno says.
