Hoffman Auto Group Will #GoRed For Women on Friday, February 6

Hoffman Auto Group is pleased to sponsor the American Heart Association – Go Red for Women event again this year. Part of raising awareness for their efforts includes the National Wear Red Day 2015. This year it is Friday, February 6 and we invite you to participate along with us at the Hoffman Auto Group by wearing red.


Go Red For Women has been successful over the last decade by helping to educate women on the risk factors for heart disease or stroke. During this time the death rates of women from heart disease have declined by 34 percent. This is encouraging progress and more is yet to be made. You can help in a variety of ways. Learn the facts about heart disease and share this information with the women in your life. There are a multitude of resources available to answer your questions as well as provide helpful tips to improve your healthy choices.

It’s not just a man’s disease.

Heart disease and stroke kill 1 in 3 women, yet it’s 80% preventable.

Chances are you know someone who has been impacted by heart disease. You can read inspiring stories of survival and hope on the Go Red for Women website.

 Get inspired. Get involved. Get ready!


Hoffman Auto Group will be sharing photos of our employees who get creative next Friday. Please be sure to check our Facebook page and share some of your own photos with us – how creative will you be?



Families benefit from Hoffman Auto Group’s continued support of Community Renewal Team

The holidays are meant to be a time of joyful reflection and loving connection with friends and family. However, there are families that face challenging financial times that don’t disappear when the festivities begin. The Hoffman Auto Group has supported the Community Renewal Team (CRT) for about 30 years and continues to help spread cheer by partnering with them to provide over 200 local families every year with baskets full of delicious food to prepare a holiday meal. “We believe in the importance of strengthening our community by supporting local charities which provide services to families and children in need, ” said I. Bradley Hoffman, co-chairman of Hoffman Auto Group. He continues, “the Hoffman family finds great joy and fulfillment in continuing the tradition of presenting the CRT with gift baskets for families to enjoy over the holiday season.” Jeffrey S. Hoffman, co-chairman of Hoffman Auto Group and member of the CRT Board of Trustees commented, “day in and day out CRT helps people in the Hartford community in so many ways (food, education, housing, health).  It gives us great pleasure to be able to help families through our partnership with CRT.”

Part of the wrap-around service includes helping clients meet basic needs, including food assistance. In over 50 years of dedication to the community, the CRT has become the largest nonprofit human agency in Connecticut.

DBA is a type of bone marrow failure syndrome where the body does not make its own red blood cells.


The next 9 months, Bailey received blood transfusions of packed red blood cells every 3-4 weeks to keep her alive. She takes chronic steroids now to stimulate her bone marrow to make its own red blood cells, but requires blood transfusions if and when her steroid treatment is not working. Bailey is a spunky, sweet, and energized 5-year-old now! She would not be here without blood donors!
