FRAMINGHAM – VIP Tires & Service, a full-service automotive repair, maintenance and tire shop with 59 locations in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont, announced today that its Framingham, store has donated $4,930 to local Framingham area schools.
The funds were raised through VIP’s Oil Changes for Education initiative, a program offering consumers $10 oil changes with 100% of the proceeds going to the local school community.
A check was presented to Dr. Robert Tremblay the Framingham Superintendent of Schools at the VIP store on September 23.
“Finding a way to get involved in the local community is important to every VIP employee in Framingham,” said Store Manager Michael Escolas. “Giving back to the community is in our DNA as a company. This program has been wonderful and has allowed us to meet so many local residents. We want to thank everyone who visited us for a $10 oil change in support of our local schools and hope they will keep coming back to VIP for all their car service needs.”
To date, VIP has rolled out this unique fundraising initiative to a number of its local stores and raised more than $12,000 for local schools in the communities it serves.
The most recent store to kick off the Oil Changes for Education fundraiser is the VIP Brunswick, Maine store.
Prior to opening the location, VIP renovated the 5,000 square-foot store, adding bays, improving the customer waiting area and increasing tire storage space.
Like all other VIP Tire & Service locations, this Framingham store offers a tire shop and full-service automotive repair, everything from brake repair, preventative maintenance, muffler and exhaust repair, multi-point vehicle inspections, wheel alignments, state inspections and oil changes.
