Aug. 20, 2019—Two shops made local headlines recently for giving back.

KNOP in Nebraska reports that Modern Tire Pros in North Platte helped the local Catholic schools system raise around $20,000 in recent years. The North Platte Catholic Schools Endowment told the news station that it will be able to revamp its math curriculum with the money.

Almost 600 miles away, a Tires Plus/Valvoline Instant Oil Change shop based in Minot, N.D., launched a dress code violation fundraiser. Employees can wear jeans on Fridays if they donate $2 to a local charity, reports the Minot Daily News. Sibling shops in nearby Bismarck are involved as well.

That's been a successful campaign as well. The paper reports that the employees have committed to $20,000 through the end of 2020.

“We are not a huge business, but we felt if everyone pitched in, we can help," said Tires Plus store manager Doug Hollingsworth in the story. "We are proud of our team’s dedication to such a great local project.”
