Car Repair Startup Donates Repair Services To Nonprofits

The contribution will benefit local nonprofits who are working to improve the lives of children.

Today, RepairSmith announces its donation to two Southern California nonprofits from its $250,000 free fleet repair and maintenance services program, Jump Start. The contribution will benefit local nonprofits who are working to improve the lives of children, including:

Emilio Nares Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps families navigate through their child’s journey with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, and ensures no child misses a medical treatment due to lack of transportation. Their flagship program, Ride With Emilio, provides free transportation for sick children undergoing chemotherapy to and from important medical appointments.

Together We Rise, a non-profit organization with a vision to improve the lives of foster children in America, who often find themselves forgotten and neglected by the public. The organization works with hundreds of foster agencies, social workers, CASA advocates, and other partners to bring its programs to foster youth across the nation. The non-profit provides youth with new bicycles, college supplies, and sweet cases so that no child has to travel from home to home with their belongings in a trash bag.

“Emilio Nares Foundation’s Ride With Emilio program has six vans in operation throughout the year. Keeping them serviced and well maintained is our highest priority so that we can ensure children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses get to their medical treatments safely. Thanks to this generous donation from RepairSmith we will have peace of mind knowing that our vans are being cared for by their professional technicians.” Karen Terra, Emilio Nares Foundation CEO.

In December, RepairSmith technicians are completing free repairs for both of the nonprofit’s fleets. Services including oil changes, routine maintenance, tire and battery replacements, and more to ensure their fleets can travel safely and continue to provide their services for children.

In addition, RepairSmith’s corporate office is hosting a toy drive this holiday season with the donations going to Together We Rise.

“Giving back to our communities is part of our core values at RepairSmith,” said Joel Milne, RepairSmith CEO. “We are proud to bring our ‘No-Contact’ service to our nonprofit partners, enabling them to help deliver critical services to families in Southern California this holiday season.”
