Business donates shirts to public works employees

Employees of the North Catasauqua Public Works Department have some new additions to their wardrobe, thanks to Marc Hillenbrand and Marc’s Auto.

The business, which is located at 423 Arch St., donated 15 shirts to the borough’s work crew members.

Hillenbrand says this is one of many outreach gestures that the auto shop has given to the community in recent years.

“When I see them working on the roads on a hot day, I’ll often get them drinks and help them stay cool,” Hillenbrand said.

The bright neon shirts will certainly catch some eyes wherever the employees are working and draw some attention to the ongoing development that the public works department is coordinating in the borough.

Hillenbrand, who is a member of the North Catasauqua Betterment Committee, said his favorite community partnership is working with the recreation committee on organizing family nights at the North Catasauqua William J. Albert Memorial Park.
