The Wisconsin CARSTAR stores (CARSTAR, Janesville; Dependable CARSTAR, Verona; Pat’s CARSTAR, Plover; Utzig CARSTAR, Janesville & Evansville) are sending care packages to Wisconsin military personnel stationed overseas. These Wisconsin stores will also act as a drop-off point for community donations and care packages to be sent throughout the month. They also are working with schools in each community to include student letters and pictures in these CARSTAR care packages.

A&B CARSTAR stores in Kansas City, Mo., will be collecting donations at each location to be used to purchase PX cards for a chosen platoon who are currently serving overseas. Each store will have a card to be signed with personal messages from all who contribute. These cards will accompany the PX cards to the selected unit and should arrive before Christmas. It also will be distributing preferred military cards from each shop to local military branch offices.

During November, military members and their families can visit participating CARSTAR locations to receive special offers including from 3M and Hertz. Participating local CARSTAR stores are offering additional benefits to military members. To receive the benefits, military members and their families just need to show their military ID cards or other military membership cards.
