Oil change fundraiser for Valley Rescue Mission is Wednesday

Epperly Tire and Auto Centers in Columbus will be holding a fund-raiser Wednesday for Valley Rescue Mission.

The “Changing Oil, Changing Lives” program will donate proceeds from oil changes that day to the mission, which provides emergency shelter and meals for the homeless, offers substance abuse recovery programs, and delivers community outreach to the less fortunate in the Chattahoochee Valley region.

There are four Epperly locations in the area — 7608 Schomburg Road, 1642 Whittlesey Road and 2041 Auburn Ave. in Columbus, and 5370 River Chase Drive in Phenix City.

Epperly Tire and Auto Centers was purchased last summer by Birmingham, Ala.-based Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers.

Valley Rescue Mission is located at 2903 2nd Ave. in Columbus. It also operates a bargain center at 101-B 30th St. and a donation/retail center at 7553 Veterans Parkway.
