On December 14, 2018, Lee Rozar of Five Star Trucking brought two cars full of wrapped Christmas gifts and groceries to a family in need at Edison Elementary School in Willoughby, Ohio.
Rozar got the initial idea of donating after speaking with Diana Zaverl, a family-liaison for Willoughby-Eastlake Schools on World Kindness Day back in November. After speaking with Zaverl, Lee Rozar approached her boss at Five Star Trucking with the idea for the donations.
“I went to him and said, ‘this is what Diana had told me about the families and how they didn’t have enough food when they went home for Christmas,’” Rozar said. “So it initially started with the food… quickly multiplied talking to Diana and her telling us about other families…”
Lee Rozar along with the Assistant Operations Manager, Lauren Longano, and the Chief Financial Officer of Five Star Trucking, Joe Gramc, donated about $700 worth of gifts to the family in need. CFO, Joe Gramc, hopes to make this effort a regular thing in the future.
