MIDDLETOWN, Del. – (September 26, 2022) – ARS Truck & Fleet Service is an active community sponsor for many local events in and around New Castle, Delaware – especially for local veterans. ARS was an event sponsor for the 2022 VetFest for the fifth year in a row, that took place on Saturday, September 24, 2022 in Middletown, Del.
VetFest brings both military and civilian community members together to support active-duty military members and their families. A group of 10 ARS employees and their families volunteered at this years’ event.
“I’m deeply passionate about the plight of combat veterans,” explained ARS’s owner and president, Patrick Connell. “We see tragically high rates of homelessness and suicide among veterans. The assimilation from active combat duty back into regular life is just too difficult. I may not be able to do anything about the challenges they face on the battlefield, but I can certainly work hard here at home to make sure they are appreciated and the burdens they face as they transition home are a little less heavy.”
In addition to Vet Fest, ARS also sponsors Wreaths Across America. This December will mark their seventh year as a sponsor. This organization coordinates wreath-laying ceremonies at the gravesites of veterans across the country as a way to honor their memories.
ARS Truck and Fleet Service has been providing fleet service, mobile truck repair, and collision repair since 1972. They serve Northern and Central Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Northeastern Maryland.
