Carter Conboy Supportis Veterans Count NY

By:

On May 21, 2016, Bestpass, Inc. and the Trucking Association of New York (TANY) partnered with Zappone Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram for their annual Touch-a-Truck event.  Carter Conboy was proud to sponsor the event with Zappone.  The event was attended by more than 1,500 children, parents and members of the community who received safety education in addition to an up close view of more than 20 large commercial and emergency vehicles.  Attendance at the Touch-a-Truck event was nearly double from 2015 and raised over $5,000 for the charity, Veterans Count NY.

“Not only are Bestpass and TANY advocates for the trucking industry, but they are always working in the community to support those in need, in this case, a great organization like Veterans Count NY, said Bill Decaire, shareholder at Carter Conboy.  “We are always honored to partner with Bestpass and TANY in the annual Touch-a-Truck event and we look forward to continuing that relationship in the future.”

Veterans Count NY was established in 2007 and provides critical and timely financial assistance and services to veterans, service members and their families when no other resource is available, to ensure their dignity, health and overall well-being.
