Jeff Schmitt Auto Group Raises $10,000 for Humane Society in Ohio

Jay Schmitt, president of Jeff Schmitt Auto Group, said this is the third year the company has been able to donate $10,000 with this campaign.

“There’s a special thing about helping something that can’t help itself,” Schmitt said. “You know these homeless animals, they can’t do much to actually help themselves. So, to have an organization like the Humane Society of Greater Dayton that’s been around for over a hundred years, it’s a big deal.”

Schmitt said the Humane Society is one of their favorite charities. He and his wife don’t have children so he said their “furry babies” have always been their kids. It’s near and dear to his heart to be able to help the Humane Society.

The test drive campaign is over for now but Schmitt said he hopes to do it again soon.
