Nu-Look Collision, Special Education School Donate to Families in Need
Nov. 15, 2017—Nu-Look Collision made a donation to three families in need in Rochester, N.Y.
Nu-Look, in partnership with Monroe #1 BOCES (a special education school), selected three families to benefit from this years contribution of $6,000 worth of Wegmans gift cards. These three families were chosen based on their financial and/or medical hardships.
This is an ongoing tradition for the shop, as it is in its sixth year of giving to those in need. Over the last five years, donations have now totaled to $36,000 and helped 18 different families.
Beginning the week before Thanksgiving, and ending the first week in April, each family will receive a $100 gift card weekly. These gift cards can be used at any Wegmans supermarket to purchase food, household items, personal products and even medicine.
At the end of the 20-week time frame, the families will have each received $2,000 in gift cards.
“We know that many charitable organizations receive a large portion of donations on Thanksgiving or on Christmas, but these families are in need more than two days out of the year. By spreading the gifts over a twenty-week period, we can help them out in the times between the holidays, too,” said Todd Zigrossi, Nu-Look Collision president.
