Tis the Season for Giving: 6th Annual Joyride – OOROO Auto
The Roadmap

November 10, 2022

Our favorite season is here: the season for giving back with our Joyride Program! Every year during the holiday season, we partner with our neighbors, friends, and family to help those in need with our Joyride Program, through the “OOROO CARES” initiative. We at OOROO Auto believe that a happy car is an important part of living a happy life. We’re extending a helping hand to up to two recipients in need so we can spread a little extra joy, one ride at a time. If you know someone in need of free car care services, submit a nomination with our form below.   

After getting the word out and reviewing nominees through the following, a panel of community members will choose the finalists and OOROO Auto will choose the final recipient(s).

Find out the program rules and if your nominee(s) qualifies: 

  • Nominee(s) must be in dire need of vehicle repair for the primary vehicle (i.e. to get to and from work, home, school, health care visits, etc.) 
  • The nominee(s) must be 18 years of age or older 
  • The maximum dollars spent per recipient will not exceed $1,000 ( includes retail labor and parts) 
  • There will be up to two award recipients chosen 
  • The nominator must provide the best way to contact nominee(s) (phone and/or email). 
  • Current customers, employees or their families, and vendors are ineligible for nomination  
  • The form for applications opens Monday, November 14, 2022
  • All nominations need to be submitted by Noon on Friday, December 2, 2022
  • Recipient(s) will be notified by Friday, December 16, 2022
  • Engine, transmission, and subcontracted work services are not offered through the Joyride program. For a list of services available, click here.
  • OOROO Auto reserves the right to inspect possible recipient vehicles before work begins to ensure the services requested comply with the above criteria.

What are the holidays for if not for giving? We are so excited to spread joy and make this winter a little warmer for up to two special recipients—and we hope you can help us do so! Let’s help the community together; Submit your nomination today with the form below.

“I want to thank everyone at OOROO Auto again for everything you have done for me and my family. You took a car that I was so stressed over, I was afraid to put my granddaughter in. And you transformed it. You made my car so safe that I feel safe going anywhere in.” – Patti, 2021 Joyride Recipient

“I’m overjoyed at the kindness of your shop and what you are doing. I cried after getting off the phone with you. This is perhaps the best Christmas season ever, despite my challenges, because it has shown me what a wonderful community I live in!” – 2020 Joyride Recipient

Our 2019 Joyride recipient was the top pick amongst our independent panel of judges and received in total 2 front tires, brakes front and rear, turn signal switch, engine coolant system service with thermostat, inner tie rod ends, lower ball joints, front sway bar links, and alignment!
