Moppert Brothers donated a 2012 Toyota Highlander on Thursday September 10 at its corporate headquarters located at 645 Kedron Ave in Morton.
“Our goal is to give back to our community,” stated Harry J Moppert Sr., president of Moppert Brothers. “By partnering with a national organization such as NABC we can have an impact right here in our community and across the country. I want to thank our employees for their expertise in repairing the vehicle as well as our vendors for their generous parts contributions and GEICO Insurance who donated the vehicle. Without them, reaching this exciting moment would not be possible.”
The vehicle was donated to The Michael J. Strange Foundation. The Michael J. Strange Foundation is a non-profit organization set up in the memory of Michael J. Strange, who was killed in action on August 6, 2011 in Afghanistan. Strange was a Navy Cryptologist who served with an elite SEAL Team. The foundation provides grief support services to the nation’s Gold Star families. A Gold Star family is defined as a family who has lost a loved one in service to the country in time of war. The foundation serves the Gold Star community while honoring Strange’s dedication and commitment to the nation.
“Moppert Brothers Auto Collision Specialists Inc. is celebrating our 40th year in the collision repair industry and it feels great to be able to continue on our tradition of giving back to the communities in which we serve. We look forward to participating again next year and encourage other auto collision repair businesses to participate in this worthwhile cause” said Harry Moppert Jr., third generation management.
