Dec. 15, 2021—As a Christmas gift to 10 area K-8 school teachers, A1 Automotive in Lincoln, Neb., will be giving away $1,000 repair credits.

According to 10 11 NOW KOLN, the shop will be accepting nominations for local teachers to receive the $1,000 credit, which can go to any service or repair, through Monday, Dec. 20. Winners will be chosen in a random drawing on Christmas Day. 

Owner Kendall Warnock said he is always looking for ways to give back to the community, and this season specifically his shop wanted to show gratitude to teachers who were helping children and giving their time so generously during one the most difficult stretches for teachers in recent years.  

“Whether that’s helping them get to and from work with a dependable vehicle that we helped repair, getting their kids to schools or to functions, or to vacations with their families,” Warnock said. “We wanted to make a difference in teachers’ lives.”

Per KOLN's report, the Nebraska State Education Association shows 88 percent of state teachers have reported a shortage of staff in their district. 

“Teachers have been through a lot, and I just want to make sure that we, with a small business in downtown Lincoln, honor them the best that we can,” Warnock said.
