Route 18 Cares

Our Thanksgiving VFW Food Drive

For the past couple of years, we've been holding a food drive to help feed our veterans on Thanksgiving. This year, we will collect non-perishable food items at our dealership from November 1-19 and all donated items will go to VFW Post 133 of East Brunswick who will distribute it to veterans in need.

Supporting Local Youth

We're proud to sponsor the Healthy Kids Running Series taking place at the East Brunswick Community Arts Center! The Sundays this race will occur are September 30, October 7, October 14, October 21 and October 28. The run starts at 4:30 pm, but those who haven't pre-registered nor received their race bag should be arrive at 3:45 pm. We support this positive, educational, and fun experience in the world of running to help combat the increasing child obesity rate.

Sean Hanna Foundation Annual 5K Walk/Run Sponsor

We have been sponsoring the Sean Hanna Foundation Annual 5K Walk/Run in Bridgewater NJ for the past couple of years to help fight children's cancer. Live DJs, free food, giveaways, prizes, awards and much more were also part of this fundraiser. We have also supported the Sean Hanna Foundation by sponsoring their 5th-annual golf outing on June 25, 2017 at Bunker Hill Golf Course in Princeton NJ.

Suicide Prevention

Route 18 Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram sponsored the Carrier Clinic Walk of Hope 2018 that took place on Saturday 9/15 for suicide awareness & prevention. Additionally, we donated $50 to the organization for every car we sold in the month of September to the Carrier Clinic! Here is our dealer principal Bill McDonagh giving the $6,300 we raised to Carrier Clinic director of fund development Michael Loch!

Free Car Shows Onsite

We're not only a car dealership, but we're also car enthusiasts! That's why we've hosted several free car shows at our location including one that's coming up on Sunday 9/30/2018 called Jeeps & Java since it'll be a meeting of Jeep enthusiasts & collectors to show off their Jeeps!

We've previously partnered with Kroozin Productions to hold the Cars & Coffee event on 7/1/18 that featured rare specialty cars, exotic vehicles, muscle cars & high-performance automobiles.

Celebrating Our Hometown

East Brunswick Day is when residents of our hometown celebrate and we thought we'd join the party by being a sponsor! It'll take place at the Community Arts Center on Sunday September 23 from 12-5 pm. Come and enjoy bounce rides, food from local businesses, touch a truck, facepainting, balloon art, a silent auction & more!


Mud Run Sponsor

We sponsored the Your First Mud Run event that happened on October 15, 2017 at the Community Arts Center in East Brunswick. A portion of the proceeds from this less-psychical, family-friendly Tough Mudder run (done by some in Halloween costumes) was given to the East Brunswick Community Food Pantry. Prizes like best kid costume, best adult costume and muddiest kid were awarded at this event.

Reach For the Cure Fundraiser

In 2016 & 2017, we have dedicated the months of September and October to our Reach For the Cure fundraiser! We donated money for every new and used car sold at our dealership and wound up giving the Saint Peter's Beast Center $12,550 in 2017 and $11,750 in 2016. We've also supported Saint Peter's by sponsoring their community golf outing & networking reception on June 7, 2016 at the Forsgate Country Club in Monroe.

4th of July Celebration Sponsor

We're also one of the sponsors of the East Brunswick 4th of July Celebration! This event will include FREE Bounce Rides, FREE Bands, FREE Parking & Admission, FREE Fireworks, lots of food vendors & a wing eating contest. We've also given away raffle prizes like flat screen TVs and tablets at our booth during past 4th of July Celebrations!

Veteran & Police Supporters

We were there to support Navy veteran & Holmdel police officer Michael Dowens and his service dog Emery when they arrived at East Brunswick Memorial VFW Post 133 after walking over 200 miles from Washington DC over 3 straight days on June 3, 2017. The reason he walked so far? To raise awareness for PTSD, which caused about $10,000 to be donated to Unbroken Warriors who helps veterans with PTSD.

Donation to The Valerie Fund's We Care Program

We donated $5,000 to The Valerie Fund's We Care Program in 2017, which covered 3 weeks of counseling for children and families battling cancer and blood disorders at their centers. We also supported The Valerie Fund by being a participating dealership in a sweepstakes motivating people to donate and take test drives for the grand prize of a new car in 2015.


S'Woodstock 2017 Sponsor

We sponsored S'Woodstock 2017, a classic car show and outdoor concert by 5-piece cover band Good to Go at Spotswood High School on Saturday June 3, 2017. The Spotswood Recreation Department puts together this family-friendly event every year.


Garden State 10 Miler Sponsor

We sponsored the inaugural Garden State 10 Miler on Sunday March 26, 2017 at Colonial Park (156 Mettlers Road) in Somerset, New Jersey. This run/walk/jog will help support the Nick Magos Cancer Callout, a nonprofit that supports cancer victims of the Somerset County SWAT Team.


Our Giveaways

We have also offered up prizes on Black Friday since we know how hectic shopping for the holidays can be. We've given away flat screen TVs, tablets and more in the spirit of the season.

In 2015, gave East Brunswick Township Mayor David Stahl a check for $5,000 because we wanted to sponsor 23 events in our hometown throughout the year including fine arts festivals, farmers markets, movie nights, 5Ks, concerts and more.

Working With Other Organizations

In addition to sponsoring events in our town, we've also worked with other organizations throughout Central Jersey for fundraisers & other events including:

  • Central Jersey Blood Center
  • Butch Patrick (who played Eddie Munster in The Munsters)
  • 4 Wheel To Heal
  • American Cancer Society
  • United Way of Ocean County
  • NY Giants
We've also earned a number of certificates and awards from the organizations we've worked with including the Veterans of Foreign Wars Patriotic Citizen Award and the Relay For Life Certificate of Appreciation.

We are honored to have received the East Brunswick Friends of Recreation, Parks and Community Services Business Award for 2016 because of the outstanding service we've done for our community.
