FAIRBORN — Jamie’s Tire and Auto Service turned up the heat on cancer and raised $1,229 for the Circle of Victory and Pink Ribbon Girls.
The Circle of Victory supports individuals who are battling cancer by not only helping underwrite cancer treatment, but medication, wigs, prostheses and other cancer-born financial burdens.
For three days through October, individuals could walk into any Jamie’s location to take a photo with a team member. They then posted the photo on Facebook and tagged the business. For every photo posted, Jamie’s donated $15 to the Circle of Victory.
Jamie’s additionally hosted a donation-based lunch Oct. 27 that offered hot dogs, hot chocolate and popcorn with proceeds benefiting the Circle of Victory. The team also purchased several shirts from the Pink Medics.
According to a spokesperson from Jamie’s Tire and Auto Service, a number of individuals from the business have been impacted by cancer, and a team member’s wife is currently receiving treatment for breast cancer. The spokesperson added that Jamie’s plans to host the fundraiser again next year.
