The funds were raised during the company’s ninth annual Season of Wishes Campaign. During the campaign customers and employees from all 56 across across the dealership’s Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts locations raised $26,255.93. VIP Tires then matched the funds.
Money raised in each state benefits the local Make-A-Wish chapters.
“Each year I’m incredibly grateful to the enthusiasm of our employees and loyal customers for our Make-A-Wish Season of Wishes fundraiser,” said John Quirk, president and CEO of VIP Tires & Service. “All of our VIP employees worked really hard to help raise money, and we had a record number of customers making contributions. I want to thank our employees and customers for helping us in our on-going quest to deliver wishes to children suffering from life threatening illnesses. We know these funds bring joy to the families and children who need it most.”
To date, VIP has raised $350,000 for Make-A-Wish through its annual program.
