Galloway Auto & Tire of Somers Point Continues Support of JFS
Posted on February 07, 2017
Galloway Auto & Tire of Somers Point, a one-stop shop for auto repair and car maintenance is proud to continue their support of Jewish Family Service by pledging another year commitment to the agency. Galloway Auto & Tire has been a supporter of JFS for years. In 2014 they made a multi-year commitment to the agency as a Builder Donor. Owner Jason Conway decided to expand Galloway Auto’s giving this year by not only giving financially but also hosting drives throughout the year to benefit JFS.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with JFS, as giving back to the community is an important part of our philosophy,” said Conway. “JFS is an essential community entity and we are proud to help them in a variety of ways.”
Galloway Auto is hosting a food collection during February and March (items can be dropped off at Galloway Auto, 420 New Road, Somers Point). The pantry’s top needs are grape jelly (in plastic containers) and prepackaged oatmeal. The JFS Food Pantry typically runs low on these items as they are not donated as frequently as others. Instant oatmeal serves as a quick, yet nutritious breakfast and peanut butter & jelly sandwiches are a common lunch, especially in households with children.
Family owned and operated for 26 years, Galloway Auto combines modern technology with old fashioned service. As a full-service repair shop, they provide service and major repairs on all makes and models. In addition to supporting JFS, Galloway Auto also supports local little leagues, Mainland Regional High School, Somers Point Police Department and the Cub Scout pack of Egg Harbor Township. Galloway Auto also offers free break inspections at the Somers Point Sherriff’s Department and Fire Department during their annual safety week.
With the support of many generous donors, like Galloway Auto & Tire, Jewish Family Service serves more than 8,000 local individuals per year through a variety of services. Responding to the needs of the community, JFS offers counseling, case management, and an array of other services including family and children’s programs, older adult assistance, autism support, Kosher Meals-on-Wheels, a community food pantry and diabetes advocacy.
