The Auto Value parts store in Remus, Michigan – a member of the Auto-Wares Group of Companies network – took first place in the country participating in WIX Filters’ FFA Box Top Program.
The store and the surrounding community redeemed a total of 22,425 box tops. The store’s local chapter, Chippewa Hills Future Farmers of America, received a $7,606.25 check. Included in that total is an additional $2,000 bonus for being one of the four chapters that submitted the most box tops, and the most improved chapter from last year’s fundraising.
“The support from Dan and Auto Value is amazing,” said Doug Richard, FFA director. “This donation will allow our chapter to reduce the cost to our members who attend FFA National Convention and State Convention, as well as cover other chapter activities. Thank you to Auto Value and WIX Filters.”
For each oil-filter box top submitted, WIX donates 25 cents to local FFA chapters.
Collect WIX box tops from farmers, truck owners, repair shops and garages, and drop them off at a participating WIX Filters FFA Box Top program location. Prior to submitting, make sure that the box top has the WIX Filters logo or name, the part number and UPC code. Visit www.wixfilters.com to find your local WIX distributor.
