NAPA Auto Care Centers Join The Salvation Army Georgia Division’s Effort to Rebuild Lives

NAPA AutoCare Centers in conjunction with 106.7 FM Radio will capitalize on the automotive company’s informative “Ladies Car Care Clinic” to help raise funds for Ringgold, Georgia victims of the recent tornadoes. 

On Saturday, May 21st, NAPA will present a car maintenance program on “What Women Auto-Know,” and will offer participants and passersby the opportunity to donate to The Salvation Army to help recent tornado victims.

 “With initial disaster relief services by The Salvation Army’s Emergency and Disaster Teams having concluded, says Major Jim Arrowood, Divisional Commander of the Georgia Division of The Salvation Army, extended disaster services focus on recovery efforts that help families and individuals rebuild their lives.”

To date, The Salvation Army Georgia has provided nearly 14,000 meals, 27,000 cold drinks, 5,000 snacks, and 5,000 clean-up and personal hygiene kits from their canteens (mobile feeding units) to disaster victims. Along with emotional and spiritual care to Georgians who have lost relatives, homes, and personal possessions in this massive storm.

Wayne Gunter, owner of Gunter Automotive Repair Center of NAPA AutoCare Centers added, “I’m pleased that we can merge our annual “Ladies Car Care Clinic”  with a fundraiser to provide The Salvation Army Georgia Division with additional resources to support their material and spiritual ministry across Georgia.”

NAPA AutoCare Centers will make a presentation to The Salvation Army Georgia Division for the “April 2011 Tornado Outbreak” at the Mall of Georgia on May 21.
