Curbing Hunger!

Last month, the Somerset County Food Bank ran a Curb Hunger campaign to help raise non-perishable food items to support needy families in the local community. The Crystal Auto Mall staff got together to collect items and help out. I was lucky enough to personally deliver the items and meet the passionate and hardworking staff at the food bank.

On the day of delivery, I traveled in a  beautiful Blizzard Pearl Highlander Limited, and took total advantage of all its features. My favorite, which I like to consider as my extra pair of eyes, was the Blind Spot Monitoring. There is a light on each side view mirror that turns on to signal you when there is a vehicle in your blind spot; a great way to double check when it is safe to switch lanes.

The Highlander offers a comfortable drive, with easy seat and steering wheel adjustments; the captain’s chair feels more like a throne. This three-row vehicle has room for everyone and everything! By pulling down the third- row seats, I was able to load our giant box of food in the back; and with the cargo net, everything stayed in place.

When I pulled up, I was warmly greeted by the staff. It was an honor to present them with our food items and a check, knowing that we were able to make a big  difference for our community. We look forward to working with the Somerset Food Bank again, as much as I look forward to driving the Highlander again!

Marie, one of the staff members, is such a sweet lady! Loved getting to meet her!
