Anne May and Margo Goldman met with Shawn Lynes the General Manager/Partner of Sheehy Ford Lincoln, Gaithersburg, January 2, 2019 at the dealership, 901 N. Frederick Ave., to receive a $7,500 donation to Gaithersburg HELP. Mr. Lynes explained that he carefully selects a charity each year for a donation from his dealership, looking especially for charities that have a large impact on the local community while keeping overhead expenses low. Mr. Lynes wrote that “The work you all do aligns well with what we believe in and we are always looking to give back to the communities we do business in.” He told us that his employees had suggested that instead of their receiving gift cards at year end, those monies be donated to a local charity. Mr. Lynes had done his homework about Gaithersburg HELP. He knew the range of services we provide and understood that we were an all-volunteer organization.
It was a lovely and gratifying way to kick off the New Year!
