In Community Involvement by Steves Auto Repair and Tire

Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire is making health care more affordable for its employees.

On December 1, the Woodbridge-based automotive repair shop started paying 100 percent of the basic health care plan.

“Small businesses are finding it more difficult to attract and retain qualified employees. The rising cost of health care is contributing to the issue,” Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire Owner Scott Whitling said. “We thought, ‘What could we do to be more marketable in our industry and do something that would benefit the employees?’”

This is enabling an employee to purchase health insurance for his two children.

Employees of Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire also received more Paid Time Off (PTO) days that can be used if they’re sick or they need to care for family members.

It’s the holiday season, and Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire is excited to participate again in this year’s gift giving programs for the Salvation Army.

“One of the organizations that we do like supporting throughout the year, but especially at this time of year, is the Salvation Army,” said Steve’s Auto owner ST Billingsley.

Billingsley put together stockings full of small gifts for children, which the Salvation Army will provide to children from five to twelve years old.

“Another program which is very good is, and is still a very big need right now, is the Angel Tree. The kids there are already vetted through the Salvation Army – they’re definitely kids and families in need in Prince William County,” said Billingsley.

For the Angel Tree program, the Salvation Army collects holiday gift requests from children in need, and places them on anonymous tags, that donors can pick up and use to fulfill the requests.

In 2016, the Salvation Army helped more than 6,000 families – roughly 14,000 children – in Washington, D.C. Metro area with the Angel Tree Program.

According to Billingsley, individuals can pick up the gift tags at Potomac Mills Mall and the Manassas Mall.
