We recently held our annual donation drive in November and December benefitting The Resource Center of Somerset & The Children’s Home of Easton. The drive was a huge success, with donations made by employees, customers, and homeowners in all communities! A donation box was placed at each of our Country Classics locations, and we were elated with all the donations we received!
Giving Back Year Round
Country Classics is a family builder owned by the Van Cleefs, one of Hillsborough, New Jersey’s original landowners. Our company has been helping groups and organizations since 1988, giving back in the communities in which we build. Continual support includes: Amsterdam School, Hillsborough Rescue Squad (ambulance in 2007), Hillsborough Rotary Club, Resource Center of Somerset, Shannon Daley Memorial Fund, Readington Recreation, Whitehouse Rescue Squad, and the Somerset Medical Center Foundation, all located in NJ. Not only dedicated to giving back in NJ, Country Classics contributes to organizations in Easton, Pennsylvania as well where our adult 46+ townhome project, Legacy at Morgan Hill, resides. Unending donations are made to The Children’s Home of Easton, which provides both short-term and long-term care for children in need of a safe, caring environment, and to Lafayette College. These are just some of the donations from the long and impressive charitable contributions list made by Country Classics on a regular basis. Employees of the company also regularly donate to community food banks and to other select organizations during the holidays.
The staff of both the Resource Center of Somerset and The Children’s Home of Easton were thrilled when they received all the donations the company collected. Donations included a wide range of items such as games for all ages, toys, household items, clothing, healthcare items, crafts, and much more. Country Classics recently made a huge contribution to The Resource Center by renovating the Annex Building and the administration offices to help improve the lives of victims and survivors of domestic abuse. Since 1978, The Resource Center of Somerset has provided counseling, shelter, crisis intervention, education, community and legal support, and advocacy to Somerset County families facing domestic violence. The agency is now operating out of the new offices and the Annex Building.
Vice President Scott Van Cleef was very happy with the results of the holiday drive. “It’s important to our company to give back. We believe in helping groups that help others in the areas where we build. It’s great to see people in our communities come together and contribute with such generous donations this holiday season!”
