During the holiday season, VIP Tires and Service will hold ita seventh annual campaign in conjunction with Make-A- Wish.

VIP kicked off their fundraiser on November 1 and it will run through the end of the year. Each customer who donates to Make-A-Wish will be given a star from VIP as a way to say thank you. This campaign not only raises critical funds, but also awareness of the tremendous work being done by Make-A-Wish in local communities.

In 2013, every VIP store participated in this seasonal program that promotes donations to Make-A-Wish and the company, raising a total of $22,604. This donation helped grant the wishes to nearly 4 Make-A- Wish children.

“Partnering with VIP gives everyone the chance to donate as little or as much as they can to help a child living in their own state,” said Tom Peaco, Executive Director of Make-A-Wish Maine. “We are grateful and thrilled that again this year VIP will be matching each and every dollar donated by customers to grant even more wishes.”

Over the past six years,  VIP and Make-A-Wish have partnered to raise over $224,000, which goes exclusively to help children and families forget about their illness and have fun together as a united family.

“VIP Tires and Service is honored to be involved once again with Make-A-Wish and the wishes that they help grant to these amazing children,” said John Quirk, President and CEO of VIP Tires and Service. “I am personally dedicated to making sure each dollar is matched for an even greater impact on the important mission delivered by this organization.”
