DeCozen Chrysler Jeep Dodge has donated $1,000 each to the Caldwell-West Caldwell Education Foundation and the Verona Foundation for Educational Excellence.
The Verona dealership kicked off a partnership with the districts at the start of March agreeing to make a donation to the foundations each time a resident from their towns purchased a car.
In March, five residents from Verona and five from Caldwell-West Caldwell purchased cars from DeCozen. The partnership continues through the end of May.
"The Board of Education and the Caldwell-West Caldwell Education Foundation greatly appreciate the recent donation of $1,000 by the DeCozen auto dealership in Verona to the education foundation," Mary Davidson, President of the Caldwell-West Caldwell Board of Education said.
"This recent collaboration was established through the efforts of Mike Cerino, CEO of DeCozen, and Caldwell-West Caldwell Superintendent James Heinegg and is ongoing," she said. "When a local resident purchases a car at the dealership, they donate $200 to the Caldwell-West Caldwell Foundation."
