Fuller Automotive and Enterprise Rent-a-Car teamed up to donate $1,500 to Auburn Youth and Family Services on Wednesday. According to Enterprise area manager, Michael Hatmaker, the Enterprise Holdings Foundation was founded to allow the company to give back to the communities where our customers and employees live and work. The Foundation has contributed more than $230 million to thousands of registered non-profit efforts since its inception.

When Enterprise approached Fuller about what cause they could support in the community, Joshua Fuller never hesitated.

“Fuller Automotive has always supported AYFS” said Fuller. “Enterprise and Fuller’s are great business partners here in Auburn. When Enterprise approached us about giving back to the Auburn community, it was an easy choice,” he added.

Chris and Joshua Fuller are fourth generation owners of Fuller Automotive, which celebrated 100 years in business in 2015. Fullers’s has supported AYFS as long as anyone could remember.

“I have been here 26 years, almost 27” said AYFS Executive Director, Sally D’Arcangelo. “Fuller has been involved as long as I have been here.”

The donation will be used to fund the AYFS summer camp program, as well as the after school program run during the school year.

“Words are inadequate to express our gratitude” said D’Arcangelo as she was presented with the $1,500 check from Fuller and Enterprise. “It might as well be a million dollars to us. We will make this go a long way.”
