LAKELAND, Fla. (PRWEB) August 02, 2018

Action Gator Tire has been a highly regarded tire dealer in Florida during its more than 50 years in business thanks to its exceptional selection of tires. Not content to rest on its laurels, the company believed it needed to do more for its community beyond its trusted auto services. Now, the third-generation, family-owned company will extend its services to Lakeland, FL, kicking things off with an initiative dedicated to giving back to the local community along with its brand new location.

"Lakeland is a wonderful community filled with terrific small businesses," says Action Gator Tire vice president and COO Freddy Christensen. "We're proud to become a member of this community, and we know that starts with giving back. Our business is only as good as the community around it, and we want to show how much we value the people of Lakeland."

No stranger to community involvement through its long-standing support of A Cause for Paws, Libby's Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation, and other worthy causes, Action Gator Tire has taken things to the next level with the announcement of its charitable outreach initiative, Gator Gives. The Gator Gives program is built to provide much-needed support to the less fortunate by providing them with the assistance they deserve.

The program will provide a free set of tires and a year of auto maintenance valued up to $2,500 to a deserving member of the Lakeland community. In an effort to further engage the population, Action Gator Tire encourages people to nominate someone they think could benefit from Gator Gives. Nominations for the contest will be accepted through September 10, 2018, and can be submitted online at Action Gator Tire will announce the winners of Gator Gives on September 24, 2018.

In celebration of the Gator Gives program and the new Lakeland location, Action Gator Tire is throwing a massive grand opening party. The family event will feature free food and fun attractions for kids including a bounce house and face painting. Local Lakeland radio station WPCV 97.5 FM will bring the hits with a live broadcast during the event.

"It's going to be a blast for everybody," says Christensen. "We've got food, prizes, music, and a lot more. We want to give families around Lakeland a great time and show them that we're here for them. We're more than a great place for tires and oil changes. We're community members."

The event is free and open to the public with a variety of door prizes and giveaways for attendees. Prizes include a set of Michelin tires, a NAPA tool cart, concert tickets, and much more.

"We see it as a small way of giving back," Christensen says. "Action Gator Tire is just so happy to be in Lakeland, and we want to show people how much it means to us."

The grand opening event for the new location of Action Gator Tire will be held on August 4, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 4516 Florida Avenue South in Lakeland, FL. Customers are encouraged to learn more about the tires and services available from Action Gator Tire and enter their nomination for the Gator Gives program before September 10th.

"We're really excited about Gator Gives," Christensen says. "The Lakeland community has already done so much for us, and it's important for us as a small business to return the favor. Everyone at Action Gator Tire is really looking forward to announcing the winners on September 10, and we can't wait to see who the lucky person will be.
