FREE BRAKES FOR FOOD! This September and October, local business owner Kevin Peterson and his employees at Peterson Auto and Truck Services in St Petersburg and in Clearwater are offering to install free brakes on client’s cars when they donate a bag of nonperishable food items and school supplies. In an effort to help stock local food-shelves and collect needed school supplies in this tough economic environment, Peterson and his employees are donating their time, expertise and brakes to those who are willing to help. “We recognize that right now there are currently an abundance of families in need locally here in the Tampa Bay area, and we are going to help them,” stated Kevin Peterson, owner of Peterson Auto and Truck Services. “These people are our neighbors, and our friends. They are our community. It is our obligation as a local business to
help and support the people whom have supported us for so many years.”
Peterson Auto has been servicing the automobile needs of the people of Clearwater/Pinellas Park, and St Petersburg since 1980 and throughout these past 30 years Peterson has had a desire and a passion to help the local community. Peterson Auto and Truck is also involved in many other community projects, such as free car care clinics for women, youth team sponsorships, and free vehicle repairs for the local church vehicles. This year Petersons’ ambitious goal is to reach over 10,000 lbs. of food, and $1,000 in school supplies! Anyone who would like to help participate is encouraged to bring in a bag of nonperishable food, school supplies, or cash donations to Peterson Auto and Truck 4655 118th Ave N Clearwater, (727) 329 8728 or 7191 9th Ave N in St Petersburg, (727) 343 4242.
“We have found a way to help our neighbors in a BIG way with this promotion,” commented Chris Anderson, Director of Operations. “We get to collect food for those in need and in turn we also get to install free brakes on our neighbor’s cars. With this drive, we have the opportunity to give back and make a difference in the lives of those around us. It is our desire to make this a Fall ritual.”
