RepairSmith Supports Southern California Children’s Charities This Holiday Season

December 23, 2020

This holiday season, RepairSmith technicians went to work to help nonprofits that are supporting children in Southern California by bringing free repairs to their fleets.



We partnered with Together We Rise an organization with a vision to improve the lives of foster children in America, who often find themselves forgotten and neglected by the public, and, Emilio Nares Foundation an organization that helps families navigate through their child’s journey with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, and ensures no child misses a medical treatment due to lack of transportation.

“Emilio Nares Foundation’s Ride With Emilio program has six vans in operation throughout the year. Keeping them serviced and well maintained is our highest priority so that we can ensure children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses get to their medical treatments safely. Thanks to this generous donation from RepairSmith we will have peace of mind knowing that our vans are being cared for by their professional technicians.” Karen Terra, Emilio Nares Foundation CEO.

Jump Start is a philanthropic initiative from RepairSmith to support nonprofit organizations who are advancing socioeconomic, racial and ethnic equality by providing access to food or personal care products, health and wellness resources, education, job training, family services, housing assistance, rehabilitation programs or related assistance to at-risk populations.
