After seeing a need, our shop decided to help out and find and fix up a bus to donate to the General Heiser Boys & Girls Club in Dumfries.
But we couldn’t do it on our own – we had to work together to make it happen.
In addition to the techs and management at Steve’s Auto Repair working on finding and repairing the bus, two automotive companies – K&W Tire and Carquest – also stepped in to assist.
K&W Tire donated an entire set of quality tires, and Carquest provided much needed parts to complete repairs on the bus, to make it safe for the road. Both companies have been involved in community projects for several years.
For the club’s Executive Director Judy Moore, having another vehicle will make a huge difference – for herself, her staff and the kids.
“I am so excited about this new bus that we just got. We’ve been having to take two buses to schools, to pick up the kids, or picking up a group of kids and coming back and then sending the bus back to get more kids,” said Moore.
We’re proud that we were able to make a difference in our community at Steve’s Auto Repair & Tire.
