On August 4th 2015 we were honored to work with the Green Brook Police Department for National Night Out! This event is held annually as a community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie.
The same day Toyota Motor Sales was at the dealership to congratulate us on completing our renovation project. Kevin Curran and his staff came to tour the facility and present Michael Rendine, General Manager with a donation in his honor to the N.J. Survivor & Welfare Fund.
Crystal Auto Mall always supports the local Police Department and they matched the funds making the donation a really special event. Green Brook PBA President Adam Siedel and Officer Dan Lanzafama were presented both checks.
After the presentation, both the officers and I hurried over to the Green Brook Middle School to set up for the National Night out event.
It was great meeting the residents and catching up with some of our own customers. I set up our station with a 2015 Toyota Sienna, I brought all kinds of giveaways and sweet treats!
The Sienna was like a mini playground on wheels; the kids loved climbing through, playing in the trunk, and pretending to drive.
To my surprise, the Sienna was a bigger attraction than the bouncy houses! Children proudly wore their police badges Crystal helped give them, as they used the giant touch screen to call for back-up to help save the day!
For others, the Sienna was a great place to relax and recharge before their next adventure. One particular kid found it so comfortable he didn’t want to leave; until it was time to eat…then his mom forced him out.
Parents loved the Sienna as well! Many of them are already proud Crystal Toyota owners. As they approached our table, before introducing themselves, many of them greeted me saying, “This reminds me that I need to schedule my next service!” I was glad to serve as a friendly reminder.
Overall, the day was spent with amazing people! We loved working with the Police Department and reaching out to the local community.
