Tucker lent a hand, or in this case, a free-of-charge truck driver and 45’ tractor-trailer, to students of Haddonfield Memorial High School (“HMHS”). The students provided a day of service on the first post-Sandy Martin Luther King Day of Service, helping coordinators in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.
Jean Shea, parent of Patrick Shea, an HMHS student, spearheaded the initiative. Shea asked Haddonfield Mayor Tish Columbi for the town’s used Christmas trees. Trees provide an environmentally friendly root system for beach dunes. They Mayor agreed, then reached out to Jim and Jeff Tucker, owners of our 52-year-old firm, who offered free transportation and logistics.
On Saturday, January 19, Tucker staff and families, and Haddonfield elementary, middle school and MHMS students and parents loaded the trees into trailer. On Monday, January 21, the truck and a bus full of HMHS students traveled to Seaside Heights to unload and help the installation.
