Back to School-Taking Care of Our Employee’s Family
It’s Back to School time and while it may look a little different this year, it didn’t stop us from continuing a tradition here at Joe Bullard Automotive.
For six years we have been providing school supplies to our employees’ children. Around this time each year, we ask our employees to send us their kid’s school supply list. Once we have the lists, we purchase the items and fill Joe Bullard Bags with the supplies on each child’s list. Some of our employees along with their family members volunteer to stuff each bag with the appropriate school supplies. After every bag has been filled, we load them in a Joe Bullard vehicle and deliver them to our employees.
One of our employees, Jennifer Clark, initiated this idea six years ago. Clark notes, “It’s rewarding to be able to watch an employee’s child grow up through the different supply lists and through the photos we get to see each year as they get their school supply bags. It gives us an opportunity to connect with our employees and their families in a way we wouldn’t be able to had we not started doing this six years ago.”
“Generosity is one of our core values, and generosity looks like giving back. In this case, we were able to give back to our employees by providing school supplies to their children,” says Dealer Principal, Ty Bullard. “It’s a joy to be able to do this again this year and I hope we can continue for many years to come.”
