MEALS ON WHEELS WITH SHEILA GREENO
When Quality Automotive and Smog says they are the “locals favorite”, it goes beyond providing premium vehicle servicing and friendly customer service. Taking the time to volunteer in the community is an important element of business success and part of the reason Quality Automotive and Smog was selected as 2017's Chamber of Commerce Business of the year. Pictured here, owner Sheila Greeno, gives back by driving meals to seniors and those in need as a volunteer for Sierra Senior Services "Meals On Wheels" program.
SEASON OF GIVING WINNER
We’d like to introduce you to Truckee local, Ryden, who is probably the most excited about the $1000 donation to the Truckee Bike Park in the Quality Automotive and Smog Season of Giving. Ryden is an 8 year old bicycling powerhouse who started at the park as a strider when he was just 2-years-old. It didn’t take long for this little guy to discover the various tracks and eventually move on to jumps. He loves to ride at the Truckee Bike Park because it’s just fun - all day fun! Taking clinics from his favorite coaches Brooks, Greg, Cierra and Courtney has taught him not only to ride well, but also learn to respect the terrain, take care of the park and have respect for others using it. Meet Ryden. See Our Video.
The Truckee Bike Park is part of the Riverview Sports Park, 12200 Joerger Drive. It’s open from sunrise to sunset and closed when muddy and when riders sink into the terrain. Admission is free, but there’s a donation box to help with maintenance and further phases. Visit http://www.truckeebikepark.org to learn more.
