Gator Gives Winners Announced!

Action Gator Tire is proud to announce the winners of the Gator Gives program, a community initiative to help those that need a helping hand in Central Florida.

After receiving hundreds of stories of local residents that go above and beyond for the community without asking for anything in return, Action Gator Tire presented the Gator Gives award to two winners and Lakeland residents Antonio S. and Laurie S. will both receive the honor.

We’re Partnering with A Cause for Paws!

We believe every pet deserves a home to call their own. That’s why Action Gator Tire is proud to partner with Orange County Animal Services this year for A Cause for Paws! Together, we’re helping animals in need of rescue find loving families that they can spend the rest of their lives with. Since we originally started A Cause for Paws, the Orange County Animal Shelter has seen the most adoptions ever in its 49-year history! We’re incredibly excited about that, and we want to build momentum to keep it going. To help a pet in need, check out the Cause for Paws site to see our featured pets and to learn all about them. There, you can also view pets that have already been adopted and learn more about this great cause. There’s never been a better time to add a pet to your family!

Putting the Brakes on Breast Cancer with Libby’s Legacy

Breast cancer is a problem that should never be taken lightly. That’s why Action Gator Tire is proud to partner with the Libby’s Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation to join forces against this disease. Together, we’re teaming up to do our part in the fight against breast cancer. Right now, with the purchase of a set of brake pads from any of our Action Gator Tire locations, we’ll donate $5 to Libby’s Legacy. The organization has been helping women for years to gain access to mammograms and cancer screenings as well as to provide support for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. They provide an easy way for women to receive mammograms and cancer screenings for a low cost or even for free, giving women all over Florida a simple way to get the information that they need. Through their P.A.L.S. program, women diagnosed with breast cancer can have a Hope Coach to stand by their side through every step of their treatment, encouraging them to fight on. Stop in at your Action Gator Tire today and help put the brakes on breast cancer.

August Fundraiser to Benefit Domestic Violence Victims

For Every Dollar you Donate, we’ll discount the same amount off your purchase (up to $5).

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been physically abused by an intimate partner. At Action Gator Tire, during the month of August, we’re helping victims of domestic abuse transform to a happier life in partnership with Find Your Fabulosity…..and we invite your participation. For every dollar you donate we’ll discount the same amount off your purchase (up to $5) at select Action Gator Tire stores – Ocoee, Winter Park, Kissimmee, and Plantation.

Find Your Fabulosity, a nonprofit in Central Florida, collects news lipsticks and gives them to women’s domestic violence shelters throughout Florida and across the United States. The lipsticks are distributed to their residents, victims. Why lipstick? Almost any woman will tell you that lipstick gives her an instant boost. For a woman who is a victim of domestic violence, a new lipstick means even more. To her, a new lipstick means rediscovery of her voice, identity, and beauty inside and out – her “fabulosity.”

All of your donations will be used by Find Your Fabulosity to purchase new lipsticks for domestic violence victims. This month’s fundraiser is win-win-win – for you, for Action Gator Tire, and for helping others in need!

ALS Fundraiser

In May, we made it our focus to raise awareness for ALS in our stores and our community. We partnered with the ALS Association, and together, we raised $700 from both customers and ourselves to benefit patients and help find a cure. It was our privilege to spotlight such serious issue.

Autism Speaks

April was Autism Awareness Month, so it was clear where we wanted to focus our efforts. For the month of April, we partnered with Autism Speaks, a fantastic organization geared toward promoting research and awareness surrounding autism and providing resources for those affected by it. As with our March partnership, we encouraged donations at each of our locations, and we donated ourselves each time someone bought a full set of new tires. We were honored to be a partner for an organization like Autism Speaks, and we’re happy to report that we had a wonderful donation to give to this special cause by the end of the month, collecting $1,000 with the help of our amazing customers!

MDA Shamrocks

For the month of March, Action Gator Tire partnered with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) to help them raise money. We encouraged customers at all of our locations to donate money to this special cause, and we also donated a dollar to the MDA every time a customer bought a full set of four new tires. We’re proud to announce that, by the end of the month, we were able to raise $1,126 to donate toward MD research, care for MD patients, and assistance for their families.

Downtown Food and Wine Fest

Action Gator Tire was proud to be the main stage sponsor for Orlando’s 9th annual Downtown Food & Wine Fest on February 26th and 27th. The event included delicious food, excellent wine, and great live performances by many talented artists, including Gavin Degraw and KC and the Sunshine Band. This year, we were pleased to see over 30,000 people come out to support the local restaurants and bars in Downtown Orlando.

Chad and Jill’s Really Big Toy Drive

Chad from 101.9 Amp Radio lived in a capsule in the Coca-Cola Orlando Eye for seven nights to help bring attention to Chad and Jill’s Really Big Toy Drive. We were proudly able to be the “Toy Tote Board” sponsor this great event, which aimed to gather toys for families in need over the holidays. After eight days, they collected 6,465 toys that were then donated to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and the Howard Phillips Center for Children and Families.

XL 106.7’s Baby DJ Toy Drive

XL 106.7 started baby DJ to help families in need around the holidays. We were able to have each one of our locations be a drop off location for this toy drive. We are very proud to have collected over 100 toys for this great organization.

Mix 105.1 Loves Our Kids Radiothon

This event was a two day radiothon benefiting Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. We were able to sponsor this event and help raise enough money for new ambulance tires for their trucks.

You CAN Make a Difference Food Drive

For the month of November, customers and community members brought in canned goods to donate at every one of our locations. By the end of the month we were able to donated over 300lbs of food to Second Harvest Food Bank in Orlando and Boca Helping Hands in Boca Raton. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Jack in the Park

This fundraiser is a local community event that helps raise money for the Special Olympics of Florida athletes. We donated a gift certificate to any of our locations to their silent auction.

Take Action this October

We launched a campaign that ran all month long. Customers helped raise money for Libby’s Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation of Central Florida. For every customer that came into any of our stores, wearing a pink shirt, a percentage of their purchase was donated to Libby’s Legacy.
