First Lady Mary Pat Christie Celebrates Avis Budget Group’s Commitment To Serving Others At Employee Appreciation Rally. Avis Budget Group wrapped up an eight-week bus tour across North America on September 7th at the company headquarters in Parsippany. This bus tour was designed to celebrate the contributions of employees and to thank customers for their business. The “Rolling Pride Rally” visited 83 Avis and Budget locations in the US and Canada. As part of the ending festivities in Parsippany, Avis Budget Group Headquarters employees decided they wanted to donate money to a local New Jersey charity, which the company would match. They chose New Jersey Heroes as their charity to continue to inspire Jersey pride. When Mrs. Christie went to the Avis headquarters to speak at their employee appreciation rally, they presented NJ Heroes with an incredibly generous check for $20,000. With strong private sector partners like Avis, New Jersey Heroes will continue to encourage, recognize, and support how ordinary citizens and organizations are truly making a different in their own distinctive ways. So a big thank you to Avis Budget Group for their generosity and congratulations on a successful Rolling Pride Rally bus tour!
