WESTFIELD — Though the name has changed, the commitment to the community remains the same. Back on Sept. 21, 2011, LaPorte Chevrolet was purchased by Shults Auto Group, based out of Jamestown. However, Shults General Manager Dan Crandall said the new and used car business, located at 216 East Main Street in Westfield, will still be a strong community supporter. “We plan to be active in this community,” he said. Part of that support will be for the Westfield Memorial Hospital. “We welcome them to the community, not only as a new business and employer, but also as a supporter of community health care,” Chairman of the Westfield Hospital Board of Directors Helen Baran said. “As an Auto Group we have been active in the communities in which we live and work,” Crandall said. “We have worked hard to support community foundations and charities that are in need. As a new business in Westfield, we plan to continue that support.” One of the activities Shults looks to support is sponsoring a hole-in-one at the annual Westfield Memorial Hospital golf tournament. “We definitely feel it’s a good thing to do,” Crandall said of Shults supporting the hospital. Shults Auto Group in Westfield sells new Chevrolet vehicles and used vehicles of all brands and models. Through its multiple locations and the Internet, Shults is able to offer over 500 new and used vehicles. For more information, visit www.shultsauto.com
