Car Seat Clinic
Virginia Tire & Auto is a title sponsor of Saving Loudoun’s Littles, a program dedicated to bringing car seat clinics back to Loudoun County. We are proud to be committed to a program which has the sole purpose of keeping kids safe in Loudoun County.
In addition to sponsoring this initiative, Virginia Tire & Auto is taking an active role in the car seat inspection effort by certifying Virginia Tire & Auto associates as Passenger Safety Technicians and hosting monthly car seat clinics. Several Virginia Tire & Auto associates received their national certification after going through 30+ hours of hands-on car seat installation training. Each month we host a car seat clinic at our Loudoun County stores where our certified technicians inspect residents’ car seats and teach them how to make sure they are secure. According to Seatcheck.org, 7 out of 10 children are incorrectly restrained in a vehicle, which can be very dangerous in the event of an accident. Schedule an appointment for one of our clinics to make sure your car seat is installed correctly.
Wheels For Work
For some of us, not having a car means not working. And that’s not an option. Virginia Tire & Auto’s Wheels for Work program provides free automotive repair services to low-income families. Since its beginning, we’ve helped families in need through a partnership with Shelter House. We’ve performed over $20,000 worth of repairs pro bono. Shelter House awarded us with the title of community champion, and we’re proud to be helping our friends and neighbors.
Fairfax County Public School Internship Program
Virginia Tire & Auto partners with Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) for an automotive internship program. Each internship program places FCPS students from the FCPS autotech program at one of our locations. During the 12-week program, the interns are exposed to all aspects of our business. They have rotations in sales, writing service, tech work and the Virginia State Safety Inspection program. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
