Carz R’ Us Partners with the Harlem School District

Carz R Us - Check Presentation PhotoHarlemDistrictLogoCarz R’ Us has partnered with the Harlem School District to create the Harlem Loyalty Program. This partnership has helped raise over $11,300 since May of 2013. These funds have been used to support extra-curricular activities, sports, music, Christmas for Kids, PBIS, individual school needs and much more.

The Harlem Loyalty Program began as a way for two Harlem graduates and owners of Carz R’ Us, Matt & Ray Aukes, to assist the Band Program. Both Matt & Ray majored in music, Matt going on to teach high school band for six years and both Ray & Matt performing professionally. Their passion for music has continued throughout their lives, reflected in their continued community performing and support of music. After seeing countless music programs cut throughout the state of Illinois the brothers decided they would set up a program to help ensure the local schools support fine arts, clubs, activities and other outlets for children to be expressive.

This program is extremely simplistic and designed for anyone that wants to help our great community. Any person living in the Harlem School District that mentions they want to be on the Harlem Loyalty Program will receive 5% off all services and Carz R’ Us will also donate 5% directly to the school of the month. Once you are a member of the program you will always receive the 5% discount and 5% will be donated back to the school of the month. Come witness the Carz R’ Us experience! We perform everything from an oil change to an engine rebuild; servicing a Toyota Prius to an RV and everything in between!!!

Our goal is to donate more every month and truly make a difference in our students’ lives. Please assist us in this goal by participating in this program and, most importantly, spread the word to all of the Harlem School District community! GO HUSKIES!!!
