While you’re busy planning a Thanksgiving meal, making a holiday gift list, and planning get-togethers with family and loved ones, please set some time aside to drop off a new, unwrapped toy or two for children ages 0-12 at any Jim Shorkey location in North Huntingdon or Uniontown as part of the US Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program. We are accepting donations until December 15. We are hoping to make this year’s haul even more successful than last year’s! Thanks so much for your generosity this season, and we look forward to making a child’s Christmas a little brighter this year!

A couple weeks back, Jim Shorkey Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram hosted the Ram Gridiron Challenge Fundraiser at McKeesport High School to help raise money for the school. We are proud to say we raised over $1,300! This past weekend, our own Sales Manager Jim Jenkins and Internet Manager Beth Robosky presented a check to Devon Harper on behalf of the Parents Boosters.

Last week, the Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi Accounting Department nominated the entire Jim Shorkey Family Auto Group in Irwin for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
To accommodate that many people, we called in the Hartford Heights and Larimer fire departments to help with the soak. When all was said and done, we donated $20 for each employee who participated and $1,000 to both fire departments. We want to send a big “THANK YOU” to everyone who was involved and came out to support this worthwhile cause.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord, and is more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
