Sierra Car Care and MST Tire CenterCommunity support is important for our city’s growth and success, that is why we would like to encourage shoppers like yourself, to fuel or “Pump-it-Up” at our gas stations located in the Reno and Sparks area.

Every month we donate a portion of sales from the pump at our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Center locations, and a portion of new tire sales from MST Tire Center, to benefit a local charity. Each month we will name a new charity for the proceeds to help. You can help these charities too, just by purchasing from Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center.

We call it “Gas for Goodness.” All donations in April will support the Solace Tree. Every Wednesday, we’ll make a donation from the pump for every gallon of gas sold from our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers. And we’ll donate $1.00 per tire sold each Saturday at MST Tire Center on Mill Street.

So Pump-it-Up on Wednesdays at your local Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers, or get new tires on Saturdays from the Mill Street location (only), and you can help to make a difference. A difference in our community.

The mission of the Solace Tree is that all children, teens and their family members have the freedom to express their feelings associated with death in a safe and loving environment. Our peer support programs and educational opportunities help children and teens learn to cope and adjust to the changes in their lives.

In 2002, while teaching at an elementary school and finishing his Masters degree in school counseling, Emilio Parga discovered he had cancer. He was also assisting students who had lost parents to suicide, accidental death and cancer. In his attempt to provide these children with emotional support, he realized that many kids and teenagers in Northern Nevada had lost a parent, sibling or caregiver throughout the year, and that there were no grief support programs for them. Knowing all too well a child or teen’s need for support when a family member or caregiver dies, Emilio decided there was no time to wait and he created the Solace Tree in 2004.

Car Tune-up from Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center

Much like your body, your car needs a regular check up to keep it running smoothly and prevent big problems.

That’s the job of a tune-up.

Depending on the mileage and type of car, a tune-up generally includes replacing
a few small parts that don’t
cost much, but they wear down easily and lower your car’s performance. And these parts can cause very expensive damage when they’re worn.

Typical tune-ups include replacing spark plugs, fuel induction service, changing the air filter and fuel filter, as well as inspecting other system components for wear or damage.

If you’re not sure when your car needs a tune-up, check your owner’s manual for a schedule. Or call us for advice.

Like your health, it’s a lot less expensive and much easier to do a little preventative maintenance now, than pay to fix a bigger problem later.

Gas for goodnessShakespeare Animal Fund

Every Wednesday in March, we’ll make a donation for every gallon of gas sold from our Sierra Car Care/MST Tire Centers. And we’ll donate $1.00 per tire sold each Saturday at MST Tire Center on Mill Street. All donations in March will support the Shakespeare Animal Fund.

For many elderly and disabled their animals mean everything in the world to them, and when their animals become ill or injured they have no money for emergency veterinary care. That’s where Shakespeare Animal Fund steps in.

Founded in January 2004 in memory of a dog named Shakespeare, the organization’s mission statement is to stop the suffering of animals by paying emergency veterinary bills for elderly, disabled and other low income individuals. And to date the fund has paid out more than $275,000, most in the northern Nevada and northern California areas. A registered 501©(3), all donations are tax deductible.

So when you need gas or new tires, you can also support our local, Shakespeare Animal Fund by visiting any of our 5 locations on Wednesdays for gas and Saturdays for tires (Mill Street location only).
