Give A Little Cuddle | June 28

Instead of celebrating a birthday with cake and candles, Russell Taylor, a Service Advisor for Thomspon Lexus Willow Grove celebrates its by giving back. When Taylor started collecting stuffed bears for his birthday he delivered the bears to area hospitals. This year he has decided to donate the bears to area police departments.

Thompson Lexus in Willow Grove has decided to step in and help out its own. The Willow Grove Lexus dealership was a drop off-site for the teddy bears this past June. The bears were collected through the last few weeks of the month. Taylor delivered them to the Upper Dublin, Upper Moreland, and Abington Police Departments the following week.

Taylor said while he doesn't feel like sharing his age, he can share his love to give back. Next June help give an extra cuddle to a child in need and donate a bear to our Lexus in Willow Grove.

Cars & Coffee Debuts in Willow Grove | June 9th

A New Set of Wheels | June 26

It's been a year in the making, but without further ado, The Thompson Organization is proud to present the Doylestown Township Police Department with its first Motorcycle Patrol unit.

 "We are so grateful," said Sergeant Robert Jones, Doylestown Township Police Department. "Thompson went above and beyond our expectations."

The Doylestown Township Police Department has three riders dedicated to this unit.

Sergeant Jones said without The Thompson Organization's help in this purchase, the dream of having a motorcycle unit would still be a work in progress.

Sergeant Jones said this motorcycle allows the department to be more interactive with the community and approachable to kids. You can now see the Motorcycle Patrol unit patrolling the streets of the Township.

Rather than shipping the confusing toy parts back to the North Pole, we will be inviting our customers to pop into our Service and Parts Departments with their new gifts and toys for free assembly help. While waiting for their assembled new toy, we also welcome them to donate a gift for our partnership with the Toys for Tots program to ensure that everyone feels the holiday spirit this year. Make sure to spread the word about this great, free service!
