Santa’s coming to Fred Beans to take photos for a good cause


The Fred Beans Automotive Group invites customers to enjoy free photos and fun with Santa Claus at select Pennsylvania and New Jersey locations.

When you stop by, bring a canned good or another non-perishable food item to help fight hunger in the community.

Throughout December, all Fred Beans locations will once again donate a portion of each sale and service bill to one of five food pantries serving areas where the automotive group operates. Dealerships will also collect canned goods and other nonperishable food items to add to the total number of meals provided through this holiday food drive. The goal is to donate 50,000 meals or more by the end of the month.

Santa will appear at the following Fred Beans locations for free family photos, including with pets:

Saturday, Dec. 9, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Fred Beans Subaru of Doylestown, 854 N. Easton Road.

Thursday, Dec. 14, 5 – 8 p.m., Fred Beans Ford of West Chester, 1155 West Chester Pike.

Friday, Dec. 15, 3 – 6 p.m., Fred Beans Ford of Washington (N.J.), 359 NJ-31.

Saturday, Dec. 16, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Fred Beans Ford of Doylestown, 876 N. Easton Road.

AutoRewards members – customers who are part of the Fred Beans loyalty program – receive $25 in bonus points when they donate a food item during their photo with Santa. They can earn double points when purchasing or leasing a new vehicle.

The hunger-fighting organizations that will benefit from the monetary and food donations are the Bucks County Opportunity Council, the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank, the Flemington Area Food Pantry, the Salvation Army of Boyertown and the Salvation Army of West Chester.
