Your Car and the Needy Will Thank You

We should be in the giving and charitable mood year-round, and not just during the holidays. But we often only make efforts to do those good deeds this time of year. Just remember, though, that people aren’t only homeless, or hungry, or in need during November and December. But if you’re donating your time and/or money right now, I commend you.

I received a press release this morning from United Way of Central Carolinas that I thought was worth sharing. This particular promotion makes giving too easy. Here’s an excerpt from the release:

Jiffy Lube, Pennzoil, and United Way of Central Carolinas are teaming up to benefit health and human service organizations in the Central Carolinas through a Lube-A-Thon. On Saturday, Dec. 15, Jiffy Lube will donate $5 to United Way for every oil change purchased during the Lube-A-Thon at its 16 locations in Charlotte, Cornelius, Gastonia, Matthews, Mocksville, Monroe, Mooresville and Pineville.  

Customers also can take advantage of their Buy One Oil Change, Get One Half Off promotion going on throughout December. A great deal and a great cause.

I’m sure many of you are currently one-, two-, if not three thousand miles past due for an oil change. So you can do a good deed for your car and a deserving charity this Saturday. The participating locations are below.

By the way, you know how I was on my soapbox earlier, we at the magazine are guilty of it, too. We’re currently participating in a clothing drive. I wish we hadn’t waited until December to do it, but we’re contributing nonetheless and we’re keeping our word (click here to see what we’re keeping our word about) .
