Come meet us at Cal Farley’s community development events Feb. 25 & 28!

Most of us stuck in the rat race take advantage of the little things. Between commuting to and from work, grinding through the work day, shuffling our kids around, making dinner, and perhaps going out to see a movie, we forget that some people come home to little at all.

Poverty is a multifaceted problem, stemming from various causes such as domestic abuse, immigration, and being a member of the working class.

At Aardvark Automotive, our community is not simply a location for our shop – it is the heart and soul of who we are and why we still exist today. Our goal is to consistently give back to a community that has given us so much in the past 33 years.

We try to help others out whenever possible, whether it’s providing food or a refurbished car for a deserving individual.

We have worked with Cal Farley, one of America’s largest privately funded child and family service providers, for 2 years and support its mission of providing care and opportunity to those in need.

As such, we’d love to invite you to two upcoming classes hosted by Cal Farley. No Excuses No Limits Amarillo aims to encourage young adults to go to college so they have better opportunities in life and in the workplace.

Meanwhile, Let’s Talk Neighborhood Food Pantries allows you to meet and to listen to the stories of those affected by poverty. The environment is completely non-judgmental and the class is offered to help people understand what they can do to help others. Whether you help collect necessary food items or donate a washer and dryer because you got a new set, you will be improving your neighbors’ lives in more ways than you know.

So drop by at either event (or both!) and say hi! Just make sure to RSVP beforehand. Event details are below.
