Lake Shore Motors is best known for their excellence in customer service and dedication to getting their customers in the car that is right for them. What many may not know is that they are also a dealership with a philanthropic heart that likes to be involved in the community. Whether that is helping with flood relief, as is the most recent case, or for disaster relief in other communities around the country.
Eileen Hyatt, BDC Associate with Lake Shore Motors, has been a member of the NWI Truck Club since 2015. She and her fellow members have been involved in a variety of disaster relief initiatives, ranging from providing water to the residents of Flint, Michigan, to trips as far south as Texas and Florida to support hurricane relief efforts.
With the recent flooding that has been plaguing the Region, Hyatt and her team went back into action to contribute what they could to those suffering in Northwest Indiana. Hyatt has joined forces with fellow NWI Truck Club members, George Tagler and Matt Abner, to collect non-perishable food items and hygiene products to be delivered to the communities of Knox and Sumava Resorts, which have been hit particularly hard by recent rains.
“The NWI Truck Club is like a family to me. When someone is in need, we are there to help.”
This helpful outlook is intrinsic to her fellow Truck Club members as Hyatt explains.
“There are members who even go out in snow storms to help people if they are stuck on the side of the road. Some of our members, like Jason Solivais and Joey Lenig, were recently out helping those who couldn't get out of their homes due to our recent flooding and delivering sand bags as well. We're stronger together as a club and community."
Donations will be accepted at the Lake Shore Motors Service Department during regular business hours of 8:30am-8:00pm Monday – Thursday, 8:30am-6pm on Fridays, and 8:30am-5pm on Saturdays through March 15th. Drop in and help make a difference in the Northwest Indiana community!
