Written by Dana Bain on .

Matthews Tire is hosting their 12th Oil Change for the Better event May 14-19, 2018. For every regular priced oil change performed throughout the week at all six locations (in Appleton–East and West, Menasha, Waupaca, Fond du Lac and Green Bay), Matthews Tire will donate $10 to Child Care Resource and Referral of the Fox Cities (CCR&R).

“CCR&R is so excited for the opportunity to work with Matthews Tire to bring awareness to the importance of early childhood education and quality care, as well as raise funds that will subsidize training for child care providers in our local communities,” said Child Care Resource and Referral Executive Director Judith Olson. Olson shared that the money raised through Oil Change for the Better will be used for their scholarship program to support ongoing training for early childhood teachers.

“We learned that many child care staff don’t make the wages to support continuing education,” shared Matthews Tire President Trevor Rezner. “We’re happy to support a scholarship program that not only benefits teachers in our area, but ultimately, helps provide children in our communities with the care and education they deserve.”

Oil Change for the Better is a semi-annual, weeklong charity event held by Matthews Tire. This May will be the twelfth Oil Change for the Better event. In the last six years, Matthews Tire has raised $30,185 for various local non-profits including Fox Valley Humane Society, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Salvation Army, Disabled American Veterans Transportation Program, Catalpa Health’s Race for a Reason, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Old Glory Honor Flight, Saving Paws Animal Rescue, Walleyes for Kids and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) is a non-profit organization serving Northeast Wisconsin (Calumet, Fond du Lac, Green Lake, Manitowoc, Outagamie, Sheboygan, Waupaca and Winnebago counties) for over 30 years. CCR&R provides families, child care providers, employers and the community with services that improve the quality and accessibility of early childhood education and care.

Matthews Tire is a locally owned tire and automotive service provider with locations in Fond du Lac, Menasha, Appleton—both East and West, Green Bay and Waupaca. The last Oil Change for the Better event was held last September and raised $4,960 for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s annual Light the Night walk in Appleton.
