Holiday Charity Drives

Great Ideas For Giving Back This Holiday Season

 

Holiday Charity Drives

The Holiday Season should be filled with joy and wonder. However, with our current economy there are many South Jersey families struggling just to live day to day. You can make a difference by participating in various Holiday Charity Drives to help bring some happiness to people in your community that you don’t even know need the help.

Contribute to a Coat Drive

With the holiday season comes the colder weather. Many people right here in South Jersey do not have proper attire needed to keep warm this winter.

At Gentilini Motors we are doing what we can to help those in need in our surrounding communities by teaming up with local organizations that accept and distribute coats on behalf of Coats For Kids. Drop your donations in any of the boxes located in our Showrooms & Service Areas, and we will deliver them to those who need it most this winter.

Contribute to a Toy Drive

This time of year is full of wonder, imagination, and the hope of new toys for most children. Many South Jersey families have had to shift priorities especially with the current state of the global economy and uncertainty it brings. Alarmingly, approximately 15 million American children live in poverty. Studies reveal that growing up in poverty can have an adverse psychological impact on a child. One of the adverse impacts is low self-esteem, a by-product of little or no hope for the future.

The new toy which millions of needy children receive each Christmas from Marines, through the Toys for Tots Program, delivers a message of hope. By being excellent role models and setting an example for others to emulate, Marines, through Toys for Tots, perform passive mentoring. Economically disadvantaged children who receive toys through the Toys for Tots program have an opportunity to observe first-hand how young men and women, just like themselves, have achieved success.

At Gentilini Motors we are doing our part to assist our local Toys For Tots branch by partnering with them as a drop off location. In 2021 our local Toys For Tots branch supported 3,248 local children and distributed 18,036 toys!

Drop your donations in any of the boxes located in our Showrooms & Service Areas, and we will deliver them to those who need it most this winter.

Contribute to a Food Drive

November is the month when the Holiday Spirit really spreads, and holiday planning begins to eat up calendar space. This year just like last year looks much different than seasons past. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to linger along with it the uncertainty it creates, one thing remains the same: The joy that comes from spreading holiday cheer by helping our neighbors in need.

This year, about 800,000 people in New Jersey face hunger every day. 200,000 of them are children, that’s roughly 1 in 10 children. Additionally, children in South Jersey counties such as Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland were almost twice more likely to experience hunger than the rest of the state, with 1 in 6 children vulnerable to hunger.

At Gentilini Motors we have taken steps in an effort to help these children by teaming up with The Community Foodbank of New Jersey Southern Branch and hosting a Food Drive right here at our dealership. Now through December 13, drop your donations in any of the boxes located in our Showrooms & Service Areas, and we will deliver them to those who need it most this holiday season.

How can you help people facing food insecurity? Donate food or money to a food bank.

Every $1 donated helps Community Food Bank of New Jersey provide three meals to individuals struggling with food insecurity. Financial gifts of any amount fuel their signature programs such that allow them to reach more people in more places across Southern New Jersey. As you reflect back on 2022 and look ahead to 2023, consider taking a moment to do good in your community and ensure that everyone has enough to eat throughout the holidays and beyond by donating today.

Volunteer Your Time

If means are limited this year and you’re unable to donate money, consider volunteering with our local charitable organizations. With the increased need for food, coats, clothing, shelter, and toys in our community, your support is invaluable.

Here at Gentilini Motors, the holidays are about gratitude, and we could not be more grateful for your support. Thank you for participating in our holiday charity drives, nourishing our community, and ensuring everyone has access to nutritious food for themselves and their loved ones. We could not do this work without you.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness Month in South Jersey

In today’s world, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is about more than awareness of the disease –  it is about removing barriers to care for the people it affects, it is about reducing the disparities that exist across races, genders and ethnicities, it is about making people aware of the challenges that remain, and it is about reminding people that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.

According to the American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen organization nearly 282,000 women and men will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and 43,000 are expected to die from breast cancer each year in the U.S. alone. In recent years, incidence rates have increased by 0.5% per year. Since Komen’s inception in 1982, it has provided more than $1 billion in funding for researchers working to end this disease. At this time there are more than 3.8 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. This includes women still being treated and those who have completed treatment. Through research grants, scientists have been able to better understand breast cancer and develop better treatments. As a result, more lives are being saved. But there is still work to be done to save lives, and help people live better lives, longer.

At Gentilini Motors we’re proud to announce the launch of our Fight For The Cure Breast Cancer Sales Event to help bring awareness and raise money for Breast Cancer. With this campaign we will make social media posts throughout the month honoring customers and Breast Cancer victims/survivors using #MakingStrides, #WeDriveFor, #MoreGoodDays, and #FightForTheCure to bring awareness. We will also make a donation for every new and used vehicle sold or leased in October to help raise money for Breast Cancer research. Customers can take advantage of the best deals with real value and no empty promises at Gentilini Motors!

We hope that with our help and the help of customers getting their new vehicles from us that one day a cure can be found for this deadly disease that has affected so many families right here in our own communities. If you are in the market for a new or used vehicle then give us a call or stop by today to see what we have to offer. Not only will you get a great deal on America’s most awarded and best selling brands, but you can also feel good knowing that your purchase with us is making a difference in the fight to end Breast Cancer.
