Maaco Collision Repair and Auto Painting franchisee Matt Davlin believes it is part of his responsibility as a business owner to give back to his community.

“If you are going to be a part of the community, and want the community to support you, then you need to support your community in return,” said Davlin. “The Maaco brand recognition and brand awareness provide me the ability to use it to help others in our community when they are in need.”

Two months ago, two teenagers broke into a house in the outskirts of Boise, ID, and in the process, shot the homeowner, Jason Mullins, and his son. Mullins was shot three times, resulting in the replacement of his upper femur, and his son was shot in the foot. Since then, it has been a struggle for Mullins, with the combination of recovery, medical bills and not being able to work. Mullin is self-employed as a house painter.

 

Davlin and his partners at the Maaco Collision Repair and Auto Painting in Boise, along with the Nelson Farmers Insurance Agency, stepped up to help Mullins with some of the financial burden from being unable to work.

 

“Like many people who own their own businesses, if you can’t work, you can’t support your family,” said Davlin. “I feel fortunate that I have my own business, backed by the recognition of a national brand like Maaco, that can help us raise money for others in our community.”

The initial car wash fundraiser generated $2,500. Since then, Davlin has continued to solicit an additional $2,000 in pledges and donations from other Boise businesses.
