Stuff The MINI AUG 2016

Hartford auto dealer New Country MINI is continuing its support of local students with the 3rd Annual “Stuff a MINI to the Max” charity campaign.

Now through August 28th, New Country MINI will accept donations of backpacks and school supplies for Hartford Public School children.

On August 29th a caravan of MINI’s will transport all of the donated supplies to the Hartford Public Schools’ Welcome Center to help kick off a wonderful new school year.

“The Stuff the MINI to the Max program has helped New Country form a strong bond with the dedicated staff and families at the Hartford Public Schools’ Welcome Center,” said Sam Herman, Sales Manager for New Country MINI. “We love meeting the children and seeing how excited they are to have a new backpack and supplies.”

WFSB Channel 3 also partnered with New Country MINI to promote the charity campaign and hosted a supply drive on August 16th at the station.

“When 3 MINI cars pulled up last year crammed with school supplies, we were overjoyed,” said Marta Bentham, Director of Family Services & Ombudsman of Hartford Public Schools’ Welcome Center. “The company has truly become a community partner with us and continues to help us accomplish our mission to assist local families.”

The “BMW Drive for a Cause” charity campaign will donate $25 for each BMW test drive from now through Aug. 31 to St. Vincent DePaul in Middletown. Simply get behind the wheel of any new vehicle at New Country BMW in Hartford and help the most vulnerable population in our state.

Additionally, at special events on Monday, August 15th and Tuesday, August 16th from 11 AM – 7:00 PM, the dealership will have extra new vehicles and staff on hand, just for consumer test drives.
