APPLETON – Matthews Tire presented a $16,000 check to the Northeast Wisconsin-based nonprofit Take ‘em Outdoors thanks to its annual Oil Change for the Better event.

Matthews Tire technicians completed 946 total oil changes across all six locations (in Appleton–East and West, Menasha, Waupaca, Fond du Lac and Green Bay), with $15 from each oil change benefitting the cause.

“I’m overwhelmed with gratitude to receive these funds,” Shad Loch, president of Take ‘em Outdoors, said. “This money will go a long way to help the kids and adults we serve enjoy the fishing and hunting experiences Wisconsin is known for.”

Matthews Tire President Trevor Rezner said the decision to support Take ‘em Outdoors with this year’s fundraiser was easy. 

“We’re happy the event was such a success,” he said. “It’s our honor to offer this donation to a small, local nonprofit that can bring joy and outdoor experiences through its unique mission.”

People who have a child diagnosed with a severe illness or handicap or who are combat-wounded veterans are encouraged to contact Take ‘em Outdoors for a chance to get into the woods and out on the water.
