Our 15th Year! Free Oil Change for Toys to Support the Marine’s Toys for Tots

Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair is giving away a free oil-change including a tire rotation to any customer who brings in a new, unwrapped toy for the Marines’ “Toys for Tots” program from now until December 12th. This is the Pinellas-based auto repair franchise’s 15th year giving away oil changes to those who donate toys. Customers have the option of trading the new toy for an oil change and tire rotation on the spot or exchanging the toy for a voucher for a free future oil change and tire rotation or $20 off any service. There are 17 Ice Cold Air locations throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties. “We are very proud to join the Marines and their exceptional program for our 15th year. It is an honor to help facilitate our customer’s support and making positive impacts in the lives of children in our community,” said Tina M. Denham, President of Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair. “Our customers and community have been very good to us for 50 years, and acting as a drop off location for Toys for Tots is an excellent way for us to give back to the community and our customers for their support.” Over the years, it is estimated that Ice Cold Air Discount Auto Repair customers have donated 25,000 toys. This year Denham says they aspire to donate over 2000 more, “our loyal customers have a proven history, and I know they are eager to support the program again this year. We are asking for even more community members to take advantage of this offer and help us meet our goal.” The toys should be of similar value, in the original packaging and unwrapped. Donations will be accepted at almost all of the 17 Ice Cold Air locations. Those interested in taking advantage of the promotion should call or stop by their local Ice Cold Air location to ensure participation. Visit www.icecoldair.com for a list of locations. # # #
