We need your help! Please nominate anyone you know to be the recipients of these weekly gifts, and “vote” on our Facebook Page each week.

Note: Each and every gift recipient throughout the 12 Weeks of Giving Back will also receive a custom take-home teeth bleaching kit, courtesy of Accent Dental Group!

One year of oil changes and tire rotations (includes six (6) standard oil changes and six (6) tire rotations). Rest easy knowing your car’s regular maintenance is taking care! Changing your oil frequently is much more than just oil – it lessens the wear and tear on your vehicle, reduces the workload of your motor and greatly reduces the risk of preventable motor issues caused by oil gunk. It even increases fuel efficiency.
Tire rotations help you get the most miles out of your tires. Proper rotation can greatly extend the life of your tires.
This is perfect for someone looking for work, for a working family who could benefit from no worrying about the maintenance of their vehicle. No need to worry about regular maintenance for a full year.
Note: oil changes include up to five (5) quarts of oil and include most cars and light pickup trucks.
