SYRACUSE – Fuccillo Automotive Group donated $200,000 to the Salvation Army as part of the red kettle campaign.
Fuccillo pledged to match red kettle donations in Upstate New York up to $200,000. As part of the deal, the Salvation Army headquarters in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Albany will each receive a $50,000 donation from Fuccillo.
Fuccillo has red kettles located at each of its 23 dealerships to collect money.
In addition to the donation, the red kettle campaign raised $1,200,000 in Upstate New York as of December 20.
“With the community’s help we have been able to make this red kettle campaign a ‘HUGE’ success for the Salvation Army,” said Billy Fuccillo, president of Fuccillo Automotive Group. “It has been a privilege to partner with the Salvation Army to raise awareness and support for all the important programs it offers to the community, and we’re so glad people around the state joined the cause.”
Red kettle donations will be accepted through December 24.
