San Francisco Auto Repair Center Gives Back to the Community

April 18, 2011
By Chuck Finley

San Francisco Auto Repair Center is giving 10 percent off any of their offered services up to $1,000 as donation to a San Francisco Public School.

“The school budgets are being cut to the bone and the kids have needs, which are not being met,” said Gary Siegel of San Francisco Auto Repair Center. “We want to do our part to help.”

A lot of schools no longer have the capacity to provide students the supplies, materials and resources they require to learn. This situation can influence the student’s performance in such a way that the lack of materials may discourage them from performing better in class. In order to attend to this particular problem of the community, San Francisco Auto Repair Center decided to allocate a portion of its proceeds to help students. In this project, customers will be given the opportunity to choose which school the donation will go to.
