WILHELM ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE BRINGS IN HUNDREDS OF POUNDS OF FOOD FOR THOSE IN NEED

Wilhelm Automotive, a Valley family-owned and operated automotive repair shop, hosted it 18th annual holiday food drive this past November. This year Wilhelm combined its efforts to support not only people, but pets too. Patrons generously donated food at Wilhelm locations to benefit the Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center and Valley View Community Food Bank as well as Chuck Waggin' Pet Food Pantry. More than 300 pounds of human food and about 75 pounds of pet food were donated by Wilhelm customers this year.

The Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center provides emergency food, financial assistance and other life necessities and resources to individuals and families in the northern desert foothills communities. The mission of the Valley View Community Food Bank is to serve the Northwest Valley communities with love and respect for those who are in need of a good and wholesome nutritious food box.

The main purpose of the Chuck Waggin' pet food pantry is to provide pet and pet service referrals to keep pets and the families who love them together.

Those who donated were rewarded with a discount coupon for a future auto repair visit at Wilhelm.

“We're so grateful to our wonderful customers and community for their continued support of our efforts to reach out to those in need during the holiday season. Their kindness is a reflection of the kind of company values Wilhelm has always represented,” said Wilhelm President Chris Garman.

WILHELM AUTOMOTIVE LAUNCHES ANNUAL HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE

This year it will combine its efforts to support not only people, but pets too. Patrons can drop off canned or non perishable food at any of Wilhelm's seven Valley locations. Donations will benefit the Foothills Food Bank and Resource Center and Valley View Community Food Bank as well as Chuck Waggin' Pet Food Pantry.

In appreciation of donations, Wilhelm customers who bring in at least two cans of food or non perishable food items or two new pet food items will receive $15 off any auto repair service (not valid for tire or battery purchases).

Last year, Wilhelm Automotive collected more than 300 pounds of food for both people and pets.

“We are so appreciative customers continually support our community service events throughout the year, and our holiday food drive is a tradition of reaching out we're proud to host. It's our way of giving back to the people in the areas we live, work and play,” said Wilhelm President Chris Garman.

Goodyear - Relay for Life

Relay for Life

We are so proud to look back to the weekend of October 3rd and 4th at Goodyear Ball Park. Helping out great non-profit organizations such as relay for life are what its all about. Giving back to our communities and such organizations are some ways we show how Wilhelm cares.

Overall over $50,000 was raised at the Goodyear relay for life event and we are pleased to have played just a small part in it. Thanks for everyone involved in a very successful charity event and fundraiser.

it has always been fundamental for our company to help out within local communties. Our two shops in Litchfield and Goodyear have been involved with this great organization for a number of years now and the events are always great. We already look forward to next years event.

Giving Back to the Community

Giving Back to the Community

Since 1979, the company has expanded to include locations in Litchfield Park, Tatum Ranch, Surprise and Goodyear. Community service comes naturally to all Wilhelm employees no matter which location is involved.

Community involvement has always been a part of the Wilhelm tradition. To date, we are involved in our local neighborhoods supporting groups such as Westside Food Bank, Cave Creek Museum, International Rotary, Luke Air Force Base, American Cancer Society and local schools. Charley and Thomas Gyder have been very active in the revitalization of the downtown area of Peoria. The presence of the new arts center, a first rate performance venue that they were instrumental in making a reality, is testimony to their dedication to the community.

“When you integrate your family into the community, it all fits, it all flows,” Thom Gyder said, “It's not something we do as an obligation, it's something we love to do”.

Each of Wilhelm Auto's five service centers submits an annual “community service report card” to ensure that the company maintains its position of philanthropic leadership in the automotive service industry in Arizona.
