Supporting Our Community
Chuck and Eddie's is very active in our community. We're proud of our involvement in many worth-while programs.
We also donate very generously to various local and regional organizations. We supply cars to local fire and rescue departments which allows them to practice first responder techniques and to train new recruits.
These are just a few examples of the good work that's done here at Chuck and Eddie's. It's not just about selling auto parts! It's about being an active part of our community both locally AND globally.
Students from The St.Bernadette School in New Haven CT. were happy with our participation in their "Touch a Truck" Fund Raiser held in June of 2017.
We were happy to provide a cash donation as well as a display of junk vehicles and our tow trucks. Everyone seemed to enjoy the event but not as much as we did!
A note of "Thanks" received from recipients of our Thanksgiving Turkey donations.
"Please accept our deepest gratitude for your very generous donations of turkeys!
Your gift met an immediate need that we were not sure we would be able to meet.
Three Vernon (CT) agencies were recipients of the turkeys you donated; The Tri-Town Shelter, The Tri-Town Pantry and the Cornerstone Soup Kitchen.
On behalf of these agencies and the hundreds of residents that will be served, we thank you!

Prospect Police Explorers
We are a proud supporter of the Prospect Police Explorers.

In addition, the program provides the police department with more human resource opportunities, and opens a very important avenue for understanding today's youth.
