C&J Donates Over $6,000 to Seacoast Local Charities
Apr 20, 2017
C&J Bus Lines donates over $6,000 to six Seacoast non-profit organizations. The funds were collected by donating $1 for every C&J round-trip ticket sold for a two-week period from St. Patrick’s Day through the end of March. All C&J customers were able to select which charity their donation went to and all online purchases were divided evenly amongst the charities.
Two organizations were chosen from each of C&J’s terminal locations, Dover, Portsmouth or Newburyport. The recipients were Zebra Crossings, The Dover Triangle Club, End 68 Hours of Hunger, Haven, Pennies for Poverty! 2 Cents 4 Change, and Firehouse Center for the Arts.
“I am thrilled with the outcome of our donations, as well as the outpour of customer support,” says Jim Jalbert, President of C&J Bus Lines. “We are lucky to live in such a wonderful area and C&J has built our company on the foundation of supporting and giving back to the communities that support you. We do everything we can to assist those organizations who help make a difference in peoples’ lives every day.”
C&J takes great pride in the importance of supporting the Seacoast community and sponsors many organizations throughout the community. The company is committed to being actively engaged in outreach by contributing time, talent, and services to help further the goals of community-minded organizations.
