SMP and its employees are committed to contributing to the health and wellbeing of the communities in which we live and work. Whether it’s partnering with a nonprofit or providing support to a local organization in need, SMP champions important causes while nurturing a culture of caring and involvement.
Through its SMP Cares™ program, the SMP family is having a positive impact through generous charitable giving and thousands of hours of volunteering each year.
SMP’s 2021 charitable efforts have included blood drives with the American Red Cross, fundraising for United Way, gathering and donating gifts for Toys for Tots, providing Thanksgiving meals for veterans and their families through the Military Heroes Support Foundation, and more. Also in 2021, SMP employees creatively raised and donated more than $50,000 to local community organizations, hospitals, schools, and shelters. SMP Cares™ initiatives are updated regularly on smpcares.smpcorp.com.
In this same spirit, SMP believes supporting the next generation of technicians and automotive professionals is important to sustaining the auto repair industry. We are a lifetime trustee of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) funding several scholarships annually. This year, SMP also proudly sponsored three independent scholarship programs – Blue Streak® ‘Better Then, Better Now’, Intermotor® ‘Import Leader’, and SMP® ‘Women in Auto Care’ Scholarship – awarding $5,000 each to ten deserving automotive technology students.
As we like to say at Standard Motor Products, corporate responsibility and community support is part our DNA.
