Free oil change vouchers were given to those who donated blood at a Midas location in South Carolina. 

Jan. 3, 2023—A Midas location in South Carolina recently held a blood drive with the Red Cross, according to ABC 25 Columbia

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held last week at the Midas location in Columbia to celebrate the one-year anniversary of its opening. Mayor Daniel Rickenmann and Gus Herlong, a representative with Midas and President of Palmetto Garage Works, were some of the officials in attendance. 

The Red Cross was at the ceremony to take blood donations. In exchange, people who donated had the opportunity to receive a voucher for a free oil change. Herlong told ABC 25 Columbia over 20 people chose to donate blood. 

“Our platform is to give back to the community. We’re gonna market that way. We’re gonna continue donating and giving back in cities in which we do business. Cars don’t fix themselves and neither do communities. And the only way we change that is we give back,” Herlong said.
