State Inspections for Our Community

Providing Much More than Auto Repairs in the Virginia Peninsula

Through the state inspections for our community program, American Pride Automotive donates a significant part of the service fee to groups and organizations with important needs and missions. You won’t pay more to have your vehicle inspected at one of our locations than you will at any other certified Virginia state inspection station. Instead, you walk away with both a legally inspected car and the knowledge that your money is going toward a good cause. Annual state inspections are a necessary part of vehicle ownership, but when you choose to have your car inspected at American Pride Automotive, that yearly task becomes an opportunity to help those in need. Every day we turn the ordinary into extraordinary results for people in our communities.

Call us to schedule a state inspection! Our auto repair professionals proudly serve Toano, Williamsburg, and Newport News. Call Yorktown at (757) 595-4100, Toano at (757) 250-3880, Williamsburg at (757) 903-2473.

We Did It!

We reached our objective! For July, August and September, $5.00 from every State Inspection performed was set aside for this quarter’s community: star Hospice House & Support Care of Williamsburg. Through our state inspections for our community program and the loyalty of our awesome customers, we raised over $6,000.00 for this valuable asset to Hampton Roads. It was an honor to support such a terrific organization.

Take a look at the other non-profit organizations we support:

  • Hospice House and Support Care of Williamsburg – Highly trained staff works 24/7 to offer assistance with daily tasks, light meals, and spiritual/moral support in the form of counseling. Hospice House has been our Community Star twice and we most recently raised $6,000 for their cause.
  • Beyond Boobs – This Williamsburg-based organization is dedicated to the education about and prevention of breast cancer in women of all ages. They “pack some punch into the pink ribbon” by going beyond awareness and providing women with action steps to best prevent breast cancer, and most importantly, teaching women with breast cancer how to live well after diagnosis. American Pride Automotive was proud to exceed our fundraising goal for the organization this spring and donate $6,912. The company was also a Community Star in Spring 2015.
  • NATASHA House – For January and February 2015, we were excited to donate a portion of every state inspection fee to NATASHA House. NATASHA stands for “New Alternative Toward a Secure Home Atmosphere” and represents NATASHA House’s mission of empowering homeless and displaced women and children. By providing for the physical, emotional, and psychological needs of its families, NATASHA House offers those in need a safe place to find bearings and start fresh. NATASHA House has both residential and outreach programs that offer financial literacy training, help with crafting a life plan, educational counseling, and general mentorship. After completing programs and transitioning to permanent housing, participants receive follow-up aftercare for 12 months.
  • Heritage Humane Society – This organization provides shelter and adoption/foster services to 1,200 companion animals every year. They also offer community education about proper animal care and the importance of controlling dog and cat populations.
  • March of Dimes: Team Emerson Grace – Additional funds from our state inspection fees have gone toward Team Emerson Grace for the March for Babies.
  • Peninsula SPCA – This organization has placed more than 40,000 animals into loving forever homes.
  • Grove Christian Outreach Center – Since the year 2000, Grove Christian Outreach Center has served people in James City County who are elderly, poor, disabled, or otherwise needy. Their goal is to “treat each person with dignity and respect and show the love of Christ in assisting them with their need.” In February 2013, American Pride Automotive was proud to donate $2,160 to GCOC’s cause.
  • State Inspections for Kelly – Kelly, the daughter of one of our great customers, suffers from ovarian cancer. In June 2012, American Pride Automotive had the privilege of donating $10 of every state inspection to Kelly and her family through the organization Connor’s Heroes.
  • Child Development Resources – This organization is committed to maintaining a diverse, professional work force that provides communities with quality service. Our company is honored to support this organization’s incredible mission.
