Bruce Titus Automotive Group, Inc. Presents.....Santa Paws.


Being a member of the Bruce Titus Automotive Group is truly special.  Bruce Titus, Owner/President of the organization is truly committed to the communities where he does business.  He understands that the people we do business with are a part of these great communities, they are our neighbors, our families, our friends. 

The Bruce Titus Automotive Group is regularly involved in some kind of community event, whether it is sponsoring the local Softball team or booster club, or holding a Food Drive,and his staff is encouraged to get involved.

October - November was the Fall Food Drive, for motivation we offered  entry into a drawing for $50 Gas Card and other specials such as Free Oil Changes, and through employee participation and community support we were able to donate over 700 non-perishable food items to area food banks.  Side note.....these agencies need our help all year long, so we hope to do a spring food drive also. …
