For the 7th year, Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers will continue a tradition of giving, donating $1, to Harvest Hope Food Bank for every oil change performed in the Columbia area during the month of November. Since 2015, this drive has provided over 250,000 meals to those facing hunger in the Midlands community.
“As we enter the holidays, utilities and overall expenses are higher, and food insecurity among our neighbors in need rises,” says Erinn Rowe, Harvest Hope CEO. “We are thankful for our community partners like Express Oil Change and Tire Engineers for encouraging their team and local community to give back to those who are facing hunger this year.”
In addition to the Express Oil’s $1 donation for every oil change, customers are encouraged to donate to help their neighbors in need this holiday season. Those wishing to donate should let their technician know upon arrival.
“Harvest Hope provides critical services in the battle to fight hunger throughout the entire state of South Carolina,” says Gregg Gaskins, owner of Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers here in the Midlands. “It’s a privilege for us to continue our annual donation drive during the month of November to raise awareness and funds that help offset the cost of serving those in need.”
