STANHOPE, N.J. -
To celebrate the holiday season, Lynnes Auto Group will be helping the local community by giving away a vehicle to one deserving family.
With its annual Deserving Family Car Giveaway, the New Jersey business hopes to find this year’s “perfect” recipient.
"The Deserving Family Car Giveaway is an incredible experience for all of us at Lynnes. Each year we hold the Deserving Family Car Giveaway, we just hope that we can continue to make a real difference in people's lives," said Lynnes vice president Julie Tozzo.
Each year, the company received hundred of letters, nominating friends, family memers and co-workers for the giveaway, the company shared.
Last year, Lynnes donated a car to Rosemarie Veliz.
Rosemarie's daughter, Tierney Veliz, had nominated her mother, who’s story impacted the company and its staff.
“Rosemarie (Veliz) has selflessly dedicated herself to her son Chase's battle with Hunter Syndrome,” the company explained.
In an effort to recognize the sacrifices that Rosemarie Veliz has made throughout the years, as well as aleviate the family's financial and emotional burdens, Lynnes Auto Family chose her as the lucky recipient of the 2010 vehicle donation.
During this holiday season, Lynnes Auto Family invites anyone to drop off written nominations at the Lynnes Nissan Dealership on US-206 in Stanhope, N.J., or email nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org between now and Dec. 31st.
"We started this effort as a way to give back to the community that is responsible for so much of our success,” said Tozzo, of the charity tradition which the business began six years ago.
"We are so happy that we could be a part of helping out others, just as they have helped us throughout the years," she added.
