Toyota of Hackensack Supports Autism Speaks

Toyota of Hackensack, New Jersey, is pleased to announce their participation in Toyota’s Autism Speaks Winter Charity Partnership. Beginning on December 1st and running through December month end, the dealership has pledged a $15 Service Coupon to customers who donate $10 or more towards Autism Speaks. The coupons are valid towards future service at the dealership and donations can be made online at www.autismspeaks.org/ToyotaCares or in person at Toyota of Hackensack.  

Why donate? In 2014, the Center for Disease Control reported that 1 in every 68 children, and 1 in every 42 boys in the United States are diagnosed on the autism spectrum. More children are diagnosed with autism than with AIDS, pediatric cancer and juvenile diabetes combined. It is the fastest growing developmental disorder in our country, with no solid answer to why or how children are affected. On average, autism costs a family more than $65,000 per year.

“We are proud to participate in this charitable partnership and support the many families that have been touched by autism,” said Frank Holtham, Jr., President, Toyota of Hackensack, “And, we hope that our efforts will continue to raise awareness for this very serious disease”. The dealership has also made arrangements to host a group of children from a local school system for children with autism. The children will be able to tour the facility, check out the cars and learn more about the operations of a car dealership. 

Toyota of Hackensack is located at 278 River Street in Hackensack and their service department is open 7 days a week. In connection with this program, they are also offering a discounted service special that includes an Oil Change, Tire Rotation, 27 Multi-point Inspection and Battery Check. For more information please visit their website at www.toyotaofhackensack.com or call 201-488-7777.
