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.
