Key Hyundai Food Drive for Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy pummeled Connecticut, and I sure hope you are safe and out of harms way. The Key Hyundai family is good, thanks to the kindness of employees, customers and yes, even strangers, but as the news attests, not everyone fared so well.

Damage to homes, cars, and property is devastating, yet I am amazed at how people come together to support one another during such crisis.

Key Hyundai of Milford and many of our friends, employees and customers remained without power during the aftermath from Hurricane Sandy, operating a command center out of our Hyundai dealership in Vernon, CT (Key Hyundai of Manchester), until power restored in Milford days later.  Employees teamed together to get power, assist customers, and help each other. It was, and is, amazing.

Storm Sandy FOOD COLLECTION at Key Hyundai

We are now actively collecting non-perishable food items and toiletries at Key Hyundai of Milford and Key Hyundai of Manchester for our CT friends and especially the seniors living along the CT coast in Milford, East Haven, Stratford, and Bridgeport.

Please drop off what you can at Key Hyundai, and we’ll be sure to get these items in the hands of those who need them most!

With the power just recently restored, I must publicly acknowledge and thank our first responders, utility workers, tree workers, town officials, local businesses, media, social media, and friends, family and neighbors who repeatedly team together when crisis strikes.

It never ceases to amaze me the power of the human spirit.

A very special thanks to the Key Hyundai team who even with no power, worked to get our customers what they needed: communication, safety, and sometimes, just a warm cup of coffee, a place to charge cell phones, and a friendly face.
