Did you know that the Wiygul Automotive Clinic family has been serving the DC Metro area families for over 40 years?
During this time, we have continuously aspired be a good neighbor and help the less fortunate by supporting a number of local charitable causes. We are proud of the fact that many of our initiatives have come about thanks to the dedication and generosity of our employees. This page highlights just a few of our ongoing efforts:
The Wiygul family was inspired to launch the Neighbors In Need program in March 2020, when COVID-19 caused a sudden financial strain for many of their customers and the community at large throughout the Metro DC area.
Each member of the Wiygul family strongly believes that the DC metro area community has played an important role in the success and growth of their family business. We understand that with so many people losing their jobs or dealing with new financial restrictions during this unforeseen pandemic, paying for vehicle maintenance could be next to impossible and is likely to put a significant strain on an already tough situation.
If you and/or anyone you know has a vehicle in need of an important maintenance or repair that you currently can’t afford due to conditions created by the pandemic, our family wants to help. Whether we need to offer a discount or perform the service for free*, our entire team wants to ensure your vehicle is safe and reliable.
If you could benefit from some assistance, simply call one of our 8 Wiygul Automotive Clinic locations by dialing 866.702.8050 and ask to have a conversation about our Neighbors In Need program.
Additionally, we are also grateful to FM105.9 WMAL for recognizing our Neighbors In Need program and the Wiygul family’s efforts to help their neighbors during these unpredictable times. More details about this recognition are available here.
