Aspen Auto Clinic Supports The Home Front Cares

Aspen Auto Clinic has been giving back to local charities and organizations in Colorado Springs since they first opened their doors in 2001.  Many schools, youth organizations, missions, animal rescue centers, and veterans groups have been recipients of donations from Greg Bunch, President and CEO of Aspen Auto Clinic.  The Home Front Cares Inc. one of the organizations that Aspen Auto Clinic helps support.The Home Front Cares Inc. is an emergency financial bridge for our Colorado service members, veterans and military families that is based in Colorado Springs, CO. THFC is in their 10th year of saving the lives of hundreds of service members and their families.  This honorable organization in their first 9 years has been able to give emergency assistance of $5 million to these people and has been able to aid  99% of the time within 24 hours!

Aspen Auto Clinic and our team members have been blessed to work with The Home Front Cares in several ways in the past few years from assisting with much needed repairs on veterans cars to doing special promotions to bring in donations for this worthy cause. 

In 2013, Aspen contributed to the printing costs for THFC newsletters, car repairs for many THFC veteran’s vehicles, and attended the annual For The Love of Our Troops dinner in October at the Broadmoor.  The event was attended by many military and community leaders and brought in over $220,000.  The event also touched the heart of Aspen’s Leadership team and inspired the idea of the Thanksgiving promotion that was launched just weeks after attending this event.

In November 2013,  Aspen Auto Clinic sent out thank you cards to all of our loyal customers with a $20 gift Aspen card inside.  Along with the card we added a note that all gift cards redeemed by the end of the year, Aspen would donate $5 from each to The Home Front Cares.  Aspen’s customers flooded us with their response and brought in over 400 of the gift cards in the six remaining weeks of the year!

Owner Greg Bunch was honored to be able to present to The Home Front Cares Board of Directors a donation check for $3000.00 as a result of that mailing.  Nick Cancino, Operations Manager for Aspen Auto Clinic has a big heart for those who serve our country, both past and present and is grateful for the sacrifices they make to keep our country free.  Greg and his wife Elaina (who was raised in the military) both have great appreciation for all our military members and their families.  I (Robbie) was born and raised military as well, and I love our military! I can relate first hand with the sacrifices the men and women in uniform make on a daily basis while they serving our country.  Many continue to pay the price for those sacrifices the rest of their lives.

Aspen Auto Repair Denver Supports ICE System

No one likes to think about all the things that could go wrong in life but things do happen.  There are times when a terrible accident occurs and those involved can’t communicate with the rescuers or first responders to give them emergency contact information.

In the local Denver, CO area there are people you’ll want to be contacted to give consent to treatment, arrange help, and inform paramedics of any medical conditions, allergies you may have, or medications you are taking.

Aspen Auto Clinic, with two local South Denver area full-service maintenance and repair centers, fully supports the ICE program.  One of their main concerns with customer vehicles is safety and ICE  can save a life when used properly.

All too often, our Colorado police and rescuers have to sift through wallets, purses, glove compartments, and cell phone contacts and directories for clues taking precious time away from life-saving measures the victims need.

There is an excellent and brilliant solution that only takes a few minutes to implement that is spreading across the world, ICE. ICE – standing for In Case of Emergency, is a way to identify emergency contacts in your cell phone directory.

Simply put ‘ICE’ before a contact name in your cell phone, like ‘ICE – Dad’, ‘ICE – John’, or ‘ICE – Doctor Roberts’. Rescuers will be able to quickly identify your emergency contacts, saving valuable time.

Bob Brotchie, a Cambridge, England paramedic came up with the idea and started a promotional campaign in England in 2005. This powerful idea is now being heavily promoted in the United States and other countries.  Colorado Springs, CO is no exception.  First responders are all too aware of  how many times they are unable to find a wallet or purse on an accident victim, yet most people are seldom without their cell phone.

‘ICE’ is free to the 276 million cell phone users in the U.S.

There are some national and world-wide disaster data-bases you can join too but particiaption in some can cost up to $200

It really  is an easy, effective way to make sure important people are informed if there is an emergency and just takes a few minutes.  Designate some ICE contacts in your cell phone TODAY. If your kids have cell phones, set this up for them and explain the ICE program to them too. Remember to keep the listings up to date.

If you already know about ICE this is just a reminder to make sure your ICE contacts are up to date.  Please join Aspen Auto Clinic  in getting the word out about ICE and make sure all of  South Denver, CO is on ICE! Starting with focus on your local area first is a great place to start.  Do you have friends or family in the Littleton, Englewood, or Centennial areas?  Check with them first and be sure they know about the ICE program and remind them to update their contacts.

Share this with everyone!
