Expressing Appreciation for Our Customers! Donations Made in Your Honor This Holiday Season
Updated: Dec 23, 2022
This holiday season, the Parts Life, Inc. Family of Companies want to thank our customers, suppliers and partners for their efforts to improve the lives of Americans and protect global freedoms. We appreciate your commitment to making a positive impact on society. Although we are unable to give gifts to government employees due to federal law, we have made donations to several organizations that serve the military and beyond as a way of expressing our gratitude to all of our customers. We hope these donations will have a positive impact and show our appreciation for your support.
This year we supported Operation Cookie Drop at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst (JB MDL). JB MDL houses approximately 800 dorm and barracks residents - single service members who are new to the military and often are spending their first holiday season away from home. Operation Cookie Drop brings joy to these young service members by distributing cookies and spreading holiday cheer. We are grateful to the Spouses of JB MDL Organization who make this special event possible and bring cheer to those who are serving our country."
In addition to providing monetary support to Operation Cookie Drop, members of the PLI team volunteered to support Wreaths Across America at the Beverly National Cemetery in Beverly, New Jersey. Wreaths Across America is a non-profit organization that holds wreath-laying ceremonies in over 2,500 national cemeteries on December 17th, 2022. The mission of Wreaths Across America is to remember the fallen, honor those who have served, and teach children the value of freedom. We are proud to support this meaningful organization and its efforts to honor and remember our service members.
The values of servant leadership and giving back are deeply ingrained in our company's culture. For the past seven years, the Parts Life, Inc.

We are proud to report that this year we collected a total of 830 lbs of leftover Halloween candy for Soldiers' Angels Treats for Troops Program. The Treats for Troops program collect and distributes excess candy to local VA hospitals and deployed service members, and we are honored to serve as an official drop-off site. We are grateful for the opportunity to support this meaningful program and bring some cheer to those who are serving or have served our country.

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
“It isn’t that, Spirit. He has the power to render us happy or unhappy; to make our service light or burdensome; a pleasure or a toil. Say that his power lies in words and looks; in things so slight and insignificant that it is impossible to add and count ‘em up: what then? The happiness he gives, is quite as great as if it cost a fortune.” Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol.
