Midas has launched a national initiative to help families, veterans and first responders get back on the road. The program, called Project Spark, has Midas providing repairs — including parts and labor — for vehicles donated through 1-800-Charity Cars, an organization that provides free donated vehicles to assist struggling families transition from dependency to self-sufficiency.
Brian LePorin, vice president of marketing at Midas, said Project Spark was created to honor Midas’ heritage of being a good neighbor. “By providing necessary repairs — such as a set of new tires, an inspection or an oil change — on donated vehicles, Project Spark lets Midas help others by doing what it does best: fix cars,” LePorin said. “In the end, we believe this program can be the key to removing barriers and getting folks back on the road.”
Management believes Project Spark will help more than 1,000 people in Midas communities across the United States.
