Community EngagementSchmitty & Sons Getting Involved
Here’s how Schmitty & Sons brings meaning to their work.
Each time we grow our business, we bring our legacy of giving and service to the community around it through local partnerships and programs that we support.
Our support in education doesn’t stop at the grade school level. We partner with Dakota County Technical College and Lakeville Works to guide high school graduates and college students in mentorship and apprenticeship programs at Schmitty & Sons. We also partner with 191 Community Education programs geared toward continuing education at all stages of life.
Local Support for Global Charities
Each year, Schmitty & Sons volunteers with MVTA at Feed My Starving Children to provide meals for hungry children worldwide.
Food Donations to 360 Communities
Each year, Schmitty & Sons conducts a “Stuff the Bus” event to collect food donations around the communities we serve. At the end of each event, the food is donated to the 360 Communities food shelf.
“I used Schmitty & Sons for my wedding. They did a fantastic job. I had an issue with another transportation company and I reached out to Schmitty & Sons and they saved the day. They were so helpful and accommodating. They responded to emails quickly and efficiently. They did a great job on the day of and showed up when and where they needed to be. The guests had no issues with any of the transportation. I appreciated not having to worry at anytime about the transportation because they did such a great job!”
“We booked the trolley for our wedding and everyone complimented us on how cool it was. Our driver was very professional and respectful and was there to assist us in any way he could. Thank you!”
“We've worked with Schmitty & Sons for a few years now for annual large events. Their drivers are punctual, friendly, and super communicative. The lead-up and planning is also made easy with their friendly staff. We really enjoy working with them.”
“Efficient, friendly and clean service for our wedding day!! Thank you!!”
“We loved our experience from ease of booking to kind drivers who weren't on time- they were early!! Made our wedding day so seamless! Our bridal party loved the trolley and our guest had so much fun playing their own music on the school buses. You must book them!”
“Our very large group from Orlando, FL - that included over 40 kids had the best experience with Schmitty & Son's. We repeatedly changed our times, locations, etc over our 4 day stay and we were accommodated every time without problem. Our drivers were some of the nicest people we met here in MN, as well as the ladies answering our calls at all hours. We highly recommend and will continue booking with you during our annual visit. It was so nice to have stress free travel. Thank you so much!!”
