Tis the Season
The holidays are a time of gathering friends and family together while enjoying the various holiday season activities Connecticut has to offer. Whether it’s driving to the tree farm and cutting down this year’s tree, taking a drive to the airport to pick up that relative you don’t see nearly enough or buying that perfect Toyota for a loved one for that Christmas morning surprise of the lifetime, its time spent together. We at A1 Toyota would like to wish you and your family a truly joyous holiday season. We would also like you to remember this holiday season that some people might be having a hard time. There are so many opportunities to give this holiday season, whether it’s volunteering time at a soup kitchen or food pantry in the New Haven area or donating a toy to one of the many toy drives in the area. There’s always something we can be doing to help the day brighter for those who may feel they do not have much to celebrate.
We have so many organizations in the state that are devoted to helping out our fellow Connecticut residents. One such charity is Columbus House. Columbus House is a non-profit organization based in New Haven that has been devoted to providing solutions to homelessness since 1982. From helping find a home quickly for a family in need to giving a person the tools they need to regain their independence, Columbus House is there. A1 Toyota is proud to be able to support Columbus House and all they do for the residents of New Haven. That is why when A1 Toyota was so incredibly honored to be awarded the John S. Martinez Community Service Award this year for our contributions to their cause. It was an overwhelming feeling, and we feely genuinely blessed for being bestowed an award for a cause we believe so deeply in supporting. We cannot thank this organization enough for this award, and if you would like to learn more about the Columbus House, please visit their website www.columbushouse.org for more information on how you can help make this a joyful season for those who need help today and every day.
