Support Walleyes for Kids with Oil Change for the Better!

April 20, 2017


We’re hosting our 10th Oil Change for the Better event May 15-20 at all six Matthews Tire locations! For every regular price oil change performed throughout the week, we’ll donate $5 to Walleyes for Kids.

“Matthews Tire is proud to support this valuable organization with Oil Change for the Better,” shared Matthews Tire General Manager Trevor Rezner. “Their organization embodies things we value—hard work, appreciation for the outdoors, sportsmanship and help for those who need it most.”

Walleyes for Kids is a local non-profit dedicated to providing enjoyable, character-building opportunities to children in need. What began as an annual fish fry has evolved into much more. Members raise funds to introduce kids to organized sports and have also assisted in funding activities such as equine therapy for abused children. In addition, Walleyes for Kids supplies fishing rod/reel combos for handing out to children lining parade routes every summer.

During the week of Oil Change for the Better, Matthews Tire will also hold drawings at all six locations for kid’s fishing rod/reel combos donated by Walleyes for Kids. You don’t need to be a parent to enter—simply fill out an entry slip with your name, contact information and a child in mind. Three names will be drawn at random from each location the following week and Matthews Tire will notify winners at that time.

Oil Change for the Better is Matthews Tire’s semi-annual, weeklong charity event. In the last five years, we’ve raised more than $22,500 for various local charities 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 and Saving Paws Animal Rescue.
