Deacon Jones Auto Group Donates $5,000 to Help Disabled Veterans and First Responders

Deacon Jones Auto Group donates to The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

Smithfield, NC, June 22, 2015 - Last week at the Chevrolet Dealer Business Meeting in Las Vegas, Deacon Jones Auto Group made a $5,000 donation to the Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation that Chevrolet is partnering with. The mission of the Foundation is to honor the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller, who laid down his life on September 11, 2001. The Foundation also honors our military and first responders who continue to make the sacrifice of life and limb for our country.

“The Foundation helps build Smart Homes for injured service members, holds 5ks and events, supports burn centers and much more. Causes like this are very near and dear to our hearts, and with the 4th of July approaching, it really makes us reflect on how we can support American heroes. We are glad we can give back to those who have given so much for us,” said Christina Jones, Customer Relations for Deacon Jones Auto Park.

The General Motors Foundation donated $50,000 in 2014 to construct “Smart Homes” for US military vets that were injured in the line of duty. Each home is custom designed to address the unique needs of each individual. They are energy efficient, automated and easily accessible – helping severely injured heroes live more independent lives.
