Grease Lightning

Scott Levensailor, owner of the Grease Lightning and Castrol Premium Lube locations in Batavia, and his staff member Josh hold cans of donated spaghetti.

The two stores -- 4003 W. Main St., Batavia, and 50 Liberty St., Batavia -- are accepting canned good donations this holiday season in support of the "Give to Live" program. The donations will provide food to needy families through the Salvation Army.

Each canned food item donated will mean a $10 coupon for customers on their next oil change.

Southside Deli will be providing a donation of several cans latter this week to help kick off the drive.

Levensailor took over the stores Sept. 1 and he said one of his goals is to make sure local residents know he wants the businesses to be connected to the community and for customers to know they can rely on his shops for fast, friendly and honest service.

He said he wants to run the kind of business that is built on trust.

"My business philosophy is I want every parent in town to feel they can send their daughter to me and know she’s going to be treated fairly with no tricks that are going to drain her of her pocketbook."

Grease Lightning Founder Ben Thompson is thrilled to be partnering with AutoTex again.

“There is almost no one alive who isn't affected by breast cancer, either personally fighting the deadly disease, or watching a friend or loved one deal with the tragic consequences of breast cancer. Our team is happy to support the cause, and our customers seem happy when they make a purchase -- knowing that they are supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Grease Lightning & Castrol Premium Lube auto repair shops in Western and Central New York will be teaming up with the Salvation Army to collect toys for area underprivileged children from Dec. 1-19.

The “Toys & Tune-ups” toy drive invites the public to drop off new, unwrapped toys at any Grease Lightning or Castrol Premium Lube location and they will get 25 percent off any oil change and 10 percent off all other auto services. Those people not needing immediate service will receive a voucher for that discount to redeem at a later time.

Locally, two Batavia stores are participating. One is at 50 Liberty St. and the other is at 4003 W. Main St. Road.

For more than 125 years, The Salvation Army has been working to do the most good possible for the less fortunate at Christmastime and all year round. The Salvation Army will once again help those in need by providing them with the necessities they need to become self-sufficient again -- like a place to stay in a crisis, much-needed groceries and emergency assistance.

This year, there are more requests for holiday help than ever. They will provide baskets of foods for our struggling neighbors and toys for the children. Donations are urgently needed.
