Our New Community
It’s official: Savannah Ellwood is a part of the OOROO Auto team! Savannah began her OOROO career at the beginning of 2020 in a part-time role supporting our business development efforts. In her new role, she connects community-minded, mission-driven companies across Tucson with OOROO’s latest, year-round initiative: OOROO Gives Back. Developed as an extension of the annual holiday Joyride Program that awards pro-bono car repair to community members, our new program teams up with like-minded organizations to better serve our community. With Savannah driving these partnerships, this program allows our partners to give car repair certificates to those in need. Learn more about Savannah in the Q&A below:
