Epperly Tire to donate all proceeds from Aug. 21 Oil Changes to Alzheimer’s Association, GA Chapter | Business
On August 21, all three Columbus-area Epperly Tire locations will continue their Changing Oil Changing Lives event by donating 100% of the oil change proceeds to the Alzheimer’s Association, Georgia Chapter.
“We conduct Changing Oil Changing Lives every month to give back to worthy causes within our community,” said Epperly Tire owner, David Epperly. “This month, we couldn’t think of a more deserving organization than The Alzheimer’s Association.”
Last month, Changing Oil Changing Lives received national attention when Epperly placed in the Mightiest of Mighty awards, an honor given by Mighty Auto Parts to charitable automotive companies.
The Alzheimer’s Association raises awareness on Alzheimer’s disease, which is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States, affecting over 5.4 million Americans. The organization seeks to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease, specifically through the advancement of research and promotion of brain health. The Alzheimer’s Association also strives to better the overall care and support to those who suffer from the disease, as well as their families and caregivers.
“Funds received from the Changing Oil Changing Lives program will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association 2012 Columbus Walk to End Alzheimer’s,” said Christina Vogler, Senior Director of Development for the Alzheimer’s Association, Georgia Chapter. "The contributions will help provide for programs and services in the Columbus/Chattahoochee Valley area, which, according to Vogler, are “vital to each family’s journey through this devastating disease.”
