On Wednesday, June 8th, Jeffrey S. Hoffman, Co-Chairman, I. Bradley Hoffman, Co-Chairman, and Matthew S. Hoffman, Vice President, presented a check for $25,000 on behalf of the Hoffman Auto Group to Mark Johnson, Vice President of Development, and Gail Lebert, Director of Partnership Development, of Klingberg Family Centers.
The donation is in support of Klingberg’s Fatherhood 360°, a twelve-week program that teaches young fathers how to be more involved and effective dads for the wellbeing and success of their children, even if they do not currently live with them. “Thanks to the Hoffman family and their associates, we are able to offer valuable training to fathers to help them better meet the needs of their children,” said Johnson.
Founded in 1903, Klingberg Family Centers is a private, nonprofit multi-service agency providing help to thousands of persons across Connecticut each year through twenty distinct programs besides the Fatherhood Program. Klingberg’s mission is to extend hope and healing to children and families whose lives have been traumatized by abuse and/or neglect in its various forms, severe family problems, and mental health issues. Klingberg’s main campus is located in New Britain, Connecticut, with an additional location in Hartford. For more information about Klingberg Family Centers, visit www.klingberg.org.
