Being a contributing member of the communities we serve, giving back to others, treating others with respect, being charitable... those aren't phrases people initially associate with automobile dealers. Yet dealers are usually among the oldest businesses in many communities, not only succeeding by providing valuable services and bolstering the local economy, but also by often being the first to answer a local need or a call for help. We at The Village are proud of what we do, what we are, and how we contribute.
Our commitment to charity stems directly from our founder and President Ray Ciccolo. Ray has achieved much in life, but what truly sets him apart is his heart. Ray has never forgotten his roots as a poor kid from Cambridge, Massachusetts. His compassion for others and his willingness to always pitch in is evident in the myriad causes which we support.
