A Message From Mark Montenero
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patronage and to let you know a little bit more about our team. On the outside, you see Autoland as a car dealership, but it’s what you may not see that makes all the difference in the world…
Autoland prides itself on providing a different kind of experience. We understand that our most important assets are our employees, our customers, and our community. We do things differently to form lasting relationships that will be beneficial to all involved.
At the heart of our dealership is an amazing group of employees and clients. Everyone has a unique story that influences them to want to make a difference and they all have special causes, or organizations that they hold close to their hearts. Alone, it may be hard for them to make a difference, but together as a team we breathe life into their goals.
Over the years, our team has been active in a variety of community and charity organizations, including Toys for Tots, the Children’s Specialized Hospital of Mountainside, the DARE program, the Valerie Fund and Deborah Hospital. Autoland also has a very long standing commitment to the 200 Club of Union County - for families of police and firefighters, and we’re a major contributor to the Good News Home for Women - a non-profit organization which supports women that have become victims of substance abuse. We also contribute to the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey.
Education, family, and the youth of our community are of extremely high importance to us. That is why we host several family friendly events each year. Some of our most successful events include our annual Kids’ Safety Event where families are invited to receive free fingerprinting for their kids in addition to ID cards. We also hold an annual Cub Scouts event where local troops come to learn about safety around cars. Additionally, we proudly reward recent college graduates by participating in the Toyota College Grad program.
We are proud to have been a part of a part of Toyota’s “100 Cars for Good” program. In the past, this program provided 100 cars to deserving non-profits over the course of 100 days. We supported this very special program by hosting the giveaway of a brand new, fully equipped, wheelchair accessible Toyota Sienna to the Children’s Specialized Hospital of Mountainside New Jersey. We were honored to have been a part of this monumental philanthropic event and are eager to participate in future events like it.
In addition to our community involvement Autoland likes to be there when it counts the most. For instance, after Hurricane Sandy slammed the East Coast in 2012, our team extended a hand by hosting a relief drive to supply those in need. Donations of supplies, household cleaning products, nonperishable food items, bottled water, and batteries were collected and distributed to victims of the super storm. We even worked with insurance companies to help ease the pain of such a stressful situation.
I invite you to come and Experience the Difference at Autoland again and again and rest assured that you’re not only getting the best vehicle and service, but together WE are helping others.
