Little Falls, NJ (PRWEB) March 21, 2016
The Honor Legion of the Police Departments of the State of New Jersey (also known as the New Jersey Police Honor Legion) recently recognized Judith Schumacher-Tilton, president and dealer principal of Schumacher Chevrolet Auto Group, as an honored citizen for her company’s support of the organization. Schumacher-Tilton was given a special award citing her charitable contributions to the organization as well as to the communities in which she lives and works. The award was given during the NJHL monthly meeting on January 27 at the Brownstone in Paterson, NJ.
“This award is given to citizens who shine above everyone else in their support to local law enforcement,” said Jim Durkin, a past president of the NJHL. “Schumacher Chevrolet has been a big supporter of the NJHL, which has helped us continue our important work for families.”
The non-profit fraternal organization draws its membership from all law enforcement agencies throughout New Jersey; its core mission is to provide financial, moral and other support to widows and families of law enforcement officers who are slain in the line of duty. The NJHL relies heavily on one major fundraiser a year as well as private donations and membership dues to provide these benefits.
Schumacher-Tilton, a second-generation automotive dealership owner said that, “Every day, police officers put their lives at risk to protect us. Schumacher Chevrolet Auto Group is honored to support the brave men and women who serve our communities, and I thank the Police Honor Legion for this award.”
Schumacher-Tilton has been recognized on numerous occasions for her extensive community outreach initiatives and business achievements, and her dealerships have been honored with many prestigious automotive industry awards for excellence in service. Among them: a 2013 Ally Dealer Hero (by Ally Auto) in recognition of her founding, with son Stephen Tilton Jr., Give the Kids Hope Foundation, Inc., which supports recreational and educational programs for underprivileged children in northern New Jersey; the Women’s Choice Award by Women Certified in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015; and being nominated as 2012 TIME Dealer of the Year, becoming New Jersey's first-ever female to compete for this very prestigious award. She won the Northeast Regional title and was among the four finalists for the national title which was published in TIME Magazine.
