Each year, the employees of Jeffrey’s Automotive pool their resources to make a year-end gift in name of Morton Jeffrey, owner.  In past years, donations have been made to local charities such as the Community Enrichment Center in North Richland Hills.

This year, the employees pulled together several hundred dollars and made their donation to a Fort Worth-based nonprofit, Bread for a Hungry World.  With the option to designate funds for a specific project, the gift was focused on offering funds for a microloan for a startup in Honduras.  According to the Bread website, the microloan project is more than a handout, it’s a hand-UP.  “We believe that by increasing people’s self-worth through economic and spiritual development, you can change an entire community,” reads the charity’s website.

Kelly Jeffrey Vaughn, Customer Relations for Jeffrey’s Automotive, added the following note to the donation:  “This Christmas donation is given by the employees of Jeffrey’s Automotive in the name of Morton Jeffrey.  Everyone recognizes that Morton Jeffrey is a business man who has a heart for people all over the world. We know this gift will provide long term provision for a family in need.”
