We held our company holiday party on Saturday December 7th as a celebration and a show of gratitude to all of our employees who worked hard for our family of brands over this past year.
We also decided to use our party to do something great for our community during the holidays.
Flemington Car & Truck Country gave our employees a challenge to bring pajamas, towels & bedding to help the United Way of Hunterdon County in their efforts to give back to those in need.
We know those aren’t usually items that get heavily collected during the holidays compared to coats, toys & food, but they’re still essential in keeping everyone warm as the weather gets cold here in Central New Jersey.
Ellen Nardoni, personal assistant to our chairman & CEO Steve Kalafer, and Flemington Car & Truck Country operations director Bill Ruscher dropped off the donated items at United Way of Hunterdon County.
As a result of the contributions from our team, we essentially adopted approximately 1/3 of the 2700 families that would not have been able to afford those items otherwise.
Our associates did us proud this past holiday season!
