VIP Tires & Service Makes ‘Oil Changes for Education’ Donation

To date, VIP has donated tens of thousands of dollars to schools in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

VIP Tires & Service, an independently owned tire and auto service chain in Northern New England, made a nearly $3,000 donation to the Marshfield School Committee. As part of its longstanding “Oil Changes for Education” program, VIP donates proceeds from $10 oil changes to local schools, and Dustin Tourinho, manager of the Marshfield location, handed a $2,870 check to the commission in-person on Tuesday, Sept.12.

To date, VIP has donated tens of thousands of dollars to school districts in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, with Marshfield being the latest school committee to join the list. After the Marshfield VIP location opened to the public earlier this year, the “Oil Changes for Education” program ran for a total of six weeks, starting on Thursday, June 1, and continuing through Saturday, July 15, raising thousands of dollars.

“It is important for companies like VIP to support the communities they serve in more ways than one, and education is a fundamental building block in those communities,” said VIP President and CEO Tim Winkeler. “For years, our ‘Oil Changes for Education’ program has helped students in local schools, and we are thrilled to do the same in Marshfield. By making this valuable donation directly to the Marshfield School Committee, we hope to reaffirm our strong support for this community and others like it in New England.”
