At our business, we are committed to being more sustainable and doing our part to protect the environment. We have implemented several eco-friendly practices to reduce our carbon footprint and promote sustainability. One of the measures we have taken is offering online statements and invoices to our customers, which helps to significantly reduce paper usage and waste. In addition, we installed solar panels on our roof in 2012, which has allowed us to generate clean and renewable energy. These steps are just the beginning, and we will continue to seek out new ways to minimize our impact on the environment and create a more sustainable future.
Mt. Kisco Business, Nonprofit Look Beyond Disabiliites to Help Others
Three years ago when Steve Finkelstein hired Jon Callahan as a part-timer he didn’t have any reservations that his new employee would be a benefit to his store.
Finkelstein, owner of Mt. Kisco Truck & Auto Parts, has been hiring disabled community members for nearly 15 years, ever since Ability Beyond Disability, a Connecticut-based organization that provides services for the handicapped, opened its New York office across the street from his business on Kisco Avenue.
We are committed to making a positive impact in our community by supporting Ability Beyond that help individuals with special needs. This non-profit has been doing incredible work to improve the lives of people with disabilities for years, and we are proud to be a part of that effort. Our connection to this organization is personal, as the tragic accident that left Elliot's oldest son, Michael, disabled with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Elliot and his wife Sandy turned their attention to helping Michael and other TBI victims by creating The Brain Injury Association of New York State and becoming a mainstay of Ability Beyond. We continuously try to support this organization, by hiring part time workers, making donations, and promoting fundraising events. Our efforts reflect our core values as a business and will continue to support for the years to come.
