FleetPride announced that its senior director of marketing, Victoria Roberts, recently presented a $30,000 donation to

 on behalf of the company, after successfully launching the company’s first-ever GivingTuesday campaign.

The funds donated will support the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: “Finding cures. Saving children.”

“I am incredibly proud to be a part of this great organization and delighted with how quickly our employees and customers rallied around our first GivingTuesday effort,” said Roberts.

FleetPride kicked off its 2021 GivingTuesday efforts on Nov. 30 by encouraging customers and employees to make a purchase through the new FleetPride.com, with a percentage of online sales from that day benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. 

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Partnerships like this are fueling the $11.5 billion, six-year St. Jude strategic plan, which includes tripling its global investment to impact more of the 400,000 kids with cancer around the world each year.

Because of generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, so they can focus on helping their child live.

“Working together to raise funds for this cause is something the entire team was honored to be a part of,” said Mike Duffy, CEO of FleetPride. “This time of year, we have so much to be thankful for. To give back as a team, with the support of our customers, is incredibly rewarding for us.”

      FleetPride announced that it has acquired the assets of Nationwide Truck Service of Louisville, Kentucky.
      Founded in 1989 and owned by Eric Adkins, Nationwide Truck Service offers a wide range of repair services from its 21-bay facility and mobile repair units in addition to 24/7 roadside support.
      The Service Center at 355 Farmington Ave. will team up with the existing FleetPride parts branch at 4670 Jennings Lane in Louisville, “creating a complete value proposition for customers,” according to FleetPride. Adkins and his son, Jake, will remain involved in the day-to-day operations.
      “This is an outstanding opportunity for our valued customers and our team,” said Adkins. “Our customers will appreciate the access to a nationwide network of parts and service, and our employees will have the ability to grow and advance in FleetPride’s new service organization.”
      “We are truly excited to welcome Eric and Jake Adkins and the entire Nationwide Truck Service team to the FleetPride family,” said Cory Anderson, general manager and vice president of service at FleetPride. “Over the past three decades, the Nationwide team has become one of the most trusted independent service providers, which customers have come to depend on, in Louisville.”
      “Growth through acquisitions remains a focus for our company,” said Mike Harris, senior vice president of sales and operations at FleetPride. “We believe our value proposition resonates with owners of parts and service companies who are seeking a succession plan, or a partner that can provide a long-term foundation for their employees and customers. We look forward to the partnership with the Nationwide Truck Service team to carry on their tradition of service excellence while expanding service capabilities to our existing customers including large regional and national fleets.”
      FleetPride continues to grow its national parts and service operations. If you are interested in learning more about how to become part of the FleetPride network, visit

      Pull-A-Part, an Atlanta-based automotive recycler and parts retailer, announced it has raised more than $33,000 in donations through its annual Adopt-A-Family Program.
      Pull-A-Part operates 25 self-service auto parts stores and automotive salvage and recycling facilities in 12 U.S. states, according to the company website.
      Pull-A-Part said it will provide holiday gifts and related assistance for 41 families across the 12 states in which it operates.
      This is the fourth year Pull-A-Part has sponsored its Adopt-A-Family Program, a community-focused effort to help families in need during the holidays. Each store selects a family (or multiple families) to “adopt” in their community and sets a fundraising goal to meet the needs of those families. Each Pull-A-Part store raises the funds through a combination of direct contributions from Pull-A-Part and donations collected from their customers and other members of the community.
      All 25 of Pull-A-Part’s stores exceeded their fundraising goals this year, according to the company.
      “The amount of support we received from the Pull-A-Part community for the Adopt-A-Family program this year was inspiring,” said Ross Kogon, chief executive officer of Pull-A-Part. “Our customers, partners and employees stepped up in a big way, making it possible for us to help more families than ever this year. On behalf of Pull-A-Part and the families we’re serving this year, I would like to personally thank everyone who helped make this program a success.”
      Pull-A-Part stores select families based on nominations from team members and business partners or in response to requests for assistance they receive from organizations in their community. In Birmingham, Pull-A-Part is helping three families who were victims of recent floods that impacted the area, and in Tucson, Pull-A-Part is providing support for 10 different families who were nominated or recommended for the Adopt-A-Family Program this year.
      Other Pull-A-Part stores chose families based on requests from national charitable organizations the company supports, such as

Soldier’s Angels identifies families in each store’s local community that need help and relies on companies like Pull-A-Part to meet these needs. This year, Pull-A-Part’s local stores have adopted 21 Soldier’s Angels families around the country. “Our Adopt-A-Family program is unique, empowering our local stores to identify and support families in need in the communities we serve,” Kogon added. “Whether a recommendation from a team member or a request from a local or national organization with a family in need, Adopt-A-Family is part of our ongoing commitment to helping the people, causes or projects that make our communities stronger.”
      In addition to supporting local families in its communities, Pull-A-Part contributed more than $7,000 in Adopt-A-Family donations to The Red Cross to support disaster relief currently underway in several parts of the county. These much-needed donations will go directly towards helping families most-impacted by recent destructive and deadly storms that impacted many communities in Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Illinois and Missouri.
