Van Horn "Pays-it-Forward" to the Sheboygan County Community


Last week, the Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce held their 2017 Chamber Champions Gala at the Osthoff. Van Horn Automotive Group sponsored the Pay-it-Forward moment, which consists of a random drawing of the guests at the gala (local company employees) and a donation of $1,000 to the recipient of the winner's choosing.

Scott Pieper, Logistics Coordinator at Masters Gallery Foods, was the lucky recipient of the Pay-it-Forward moment. He choose to pay it forward to the Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice in Sheboygan Falls, WI. He stated that he choose Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice as he had heard wonderful things about their care-giving and he recently had a friend pass away there. 

Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice is the only locally-owned, community-based hospice provider in Sheboygan County. They provide compassionate and high-quality end of life care for local community members in home and at their facility in Sheboygan Falls.

Van Horn has sponsored the Pay-it-Forward donation for the past three years, benefiting other local organizations such as the Sheboygan County Cancer Care Fund and
RCS Empowers Inc. 

Teresa Van Horn believes it is very important as a pillar of the communities we live to give back to the community and support one another. "We have been very fortunate to have the support of our communities these past 50 years.  Pay-it-forward gives us the opportunity to say thank you and give the community the additional opportunity to help each other out.  The support that communities receive from our business and the many other businesses will help us to continue to grow and remain strong for the future," says Van Horn.
