Taking care of neighbors and being involved in the community is as important to Les Schwab stores and employees as selling tires and brakes. We believe in supporting organizations and events that teach about responsibility, hard work and serving the community—values important to our company. Each store manager chooses local organizations and activities focused on building character, helping those in need and promoting a vibrant, healthy community.
Across the West, we support activities and athletics for kids, regional cultural events, and nonprofits working to support underprivileged groups. Our strong community giving program is our way of repaying the loyalty our customers give us by reinvesting in our hometowns. Read about the organizations we sponsor here.
