Annual fundraiser to benefit NP Catholic Schools

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. Mechanics at Mobile One Lube Express Modern Tire Pros were treated to the beat of a local high school band Monday morning while performing maintenance on vehicles.

It was all part of the North Platte Catholic Schools Endowment Trust's annual oil change fundraiser

Now thru November 25th, $30 from every oil change will go to support the music program to buy new instruments and supplies.

"That's a first (laughs) we've never had that before so kind of a fun little thing to do, "said store owner Gary Jones, "Wish more people were here to listen to them, but yeah, it's kind of neat and a different routine for the guys here."

The fundraiser is in its 11th year.

So far, nearly $19,000 has been donated to the school for improvement projects.

"It's amazing," said North Platte Catholic Schools Endowment Director Wendy Dodson. "I just think it shows the such generosity and just the commitment of our community to help support our school system and to support our students and families."
