VIP Donates Over $164,000 to Make-A-Wish in 2022

Overall contributions in recent years total over $1 million.

VIP Tires & Service announced another round of donations to Make-A-Wish as part of VIP’s longstanding commitment to charity and community. In recent years, VIP customers and employees have raised more than $1 million on behalf of young children facing life-threatening medical conditions.

In 2022, VIP raised and donated over $164,000 to Make-A-Wish chapters across New England, including new record-level donations in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. During its “Season of Wishes” campaign, VIP customers and employees raised over $82,000 and then John Quirk, VIP’s Executive Chairman and Owner, matched the contribution, bringing the total to just over $164,000.

VIP is a firm believer in the supporting organizations that make a true difference in people’s lives.

“Once again, the VIP team is proud to support Make-A-Wish, and all the Wish Kids who benefit from this wonderful foundation,” said Tim Winkeler, VIP’s president and CEO. “Our people really get behind initiatives like this that help change lives for the better. We look forward to supporting Make-A-Wish and other philanthropic organizations for years to come.”

“Our partnership with VIP Tires & Service over the last 15 years has had a profound impact on our ability to deliver life-changing wishes to children battling critical illness throughout New England,” said Kate Vickery, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish Maine. “We are thrilled to join VIP in celebrating this incredible milestone of raising over $1 million for Make-A-Wish® and are incredibly grateful to the entire VIP Tires & Service team, their leadership and their customers for their continued support. It truly takes a community to make wishes happen, and VIP is leading the way amongst our business partners, here in Maine especially.”
