We are part of a community and as a family-owned business, we are thankful for the support from the surrounding communities enabling the Jaffarian business to survive and grow in challenging times. Giving back to the community is truly in our DNA. It started with my grandfather and grandmother and it has been passed down to me and my brother from our parents and now to my son who is fourth generation in the business. Giving back and helping others, especially children and the youth in the surrounding communities, is especially important to us and how we operate on a daily basis.
Thank you for supporting TOYS FOR TOTS
this past Holiday Season
Your support helped spread holiday cheer to thousands of impoverished children in our community alone. We filled up some Toyota Tacoma trucks with your donations! See the photos below. Thanks to everyone who contributed and a special thank you to the U.S. Marines Reservces for participating during our special December 15th event. See the photos below:

Giving back has been part of the Jaffarian family tradition for generations and our entire Jaffarian team rally around causes that we can support. We work to support many local efforts and while it is nearly impossible to help everyone, our affinity is strong with youth programs. That is why in August of 2011, we launched the GAME ON program. When you purchase a new or pre-owned vehicle from Jaffarian you are also helping to give back. With GAME ON, we are trying to offset the costs of participating in high school athletics and selected the particpating communities where you Pay to Play. With any purchase or lease of a vehicle from Jaffarian, $50 of the profits are donated to support high school sports programs. To date, over $20,000 has been raised! Read more about GAME ON in a recent Eagle Tribune article .
