Maple Shade Ford-Lincoln GM Mike Long may not exactly be an international man of mystery, but there are certainly some intriguing though generally unknown facts about his life. One of my favorites is that he drove his mother’s car through his family’s garage, perhaps presaging a great automotive career. On the athletic front he pitched for the St. Joe’s Hawks (a few years ago), still rides his bike 30 miles a day, and has been known to chop up a few golf courses.
But one of the most admirable things about Mike – aside from being the gentleman that he is– is that he sits on the board of Legacy Treatment Services, one of South Jersey’s premier human services non-profits. Legacy has more than two hundred years of experience improving the lives of children, adults and families struggling with behavioral health and developmental challenges. They offer a comprehensive spectrum of programs and services that all seek to change lives “from surviving to thriving”.
One of the programs that Legacy runs at this time of year is a collection drive to help low-income children get the school supplies they need to have a successful year. Three Holman dealerships will be participating in this drive: Ford-Lincoln Maple Shade (Mike’s store, so of course), Holman Infiniti, and Ford-Lincoln Turnersville. Look for the white collection tubs with the Holman Community logo on them. You can see the items the stores will be collecting in the poster below:
