Richard (Jerry) Bundy

Community Volunteer

Jerry was the owner of Bundy Motors in Tolland for 35 years. He has also been involved with KIDSAFE CT about the same length of time. Among his many philanthropic and volunteer efforts, he coordinates the KARS for KIDS program, which Jerry estimates has raised about $1 million for KIDSAFE to date. People donate their cars and Bundy Motors sells them, after a safety check and repairs when needed. He also spearheaded and continues to assist with the annual Car Show, a collaboration of community volunteers, which raises significant funding for the agency.

Jerry’s hobby has been off-road racing, in the US and Mexico. He resides in Vernon with his wife Dottie, in the same house he lived in since he was seven years old.
