Get a sweet treat just for giving thanks in Tucson Arizona this holiday season

Although often overshadowed by the two larger holidays that follow it, Thanksgiving is upon us. This time of year, you can sense the urgency building, the holiday plans being made, and the Thanksgiving meal prep is in the making.

Thanksgiving is as much about home as it is family. It is a time devoted to giving thanks for what we have, and is also a time when people are more generously giving back.

Some businesses begin their holiday slow downs, and more people take to the highways and byways. It can also be a time when more accidents occur due in part to more people on the roads. At O’Rielly Collision Centers, we actually start to get busier because of an increase in fender benders, minor collisions and major accidents.

But just like you we like to take time out during the Holidays to give thanks to you, our Tucson Arizona area auto body repair customers, and to the Tucson and Green Valley communities.

When you are homeless, Thanksgiving is not a time for family, food, football and parades. When you are homeless, Thanksgiving is just another day. But it doesn’t have to always be that way.

So let us introduce you to a way to pay it forward in your community and also get something sweet in return. Our partners at Garage Fly have developed a ‘sweet reward’ for any consumer that will simultaneously Pay It Forward to homeless women and children in our community and throughout Arizona! This promotion begins November 1st and runs through the end of December.

If you book an appointment through GarageFly, or write a review of O’Rielly Collision Centers, we will send a box of gourmet cookies to your door.

We’re partnering with, which helps fund Phoenix Rescue Mission’s Changing Lives Center for Women and Children. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a homeless shelter in Tucson. The cookies are created, baked, packaged and sold by once-homeless women who have transformed their lives through the Changing Lives Center! After going through the year-long program, they are now baking a fresh new future for themselves and other women and children who will follow them.

At the Phoenix Rescue Mission – we’re thinking outside the box – of cookies that is! We made a commitment to transform our city by ending homelessness. One cookie at a time. Our recipe for success is simple and delicious — teach women in our year-long program vocational skills so they can support their families upon graduation. Every aspect from baking to packaging and marketing is done by women who not too long ago were facing homelessness. Proceeds from every cookie you buy support this powerful entrepreneurial program.
