MERS/Goodwill Vehicle Donors Receive Free Year of Movies at Wehrenberg Theatres

For those looking to get rid of that old car or boat by the end of the year, Wehrenberg Theatres,  Your Hometown Theatre, has just made the deal sweeter. In addition to receiving a tax deduction for donating your old vehicle or vessel, now MERS/Goodwill has teamed up with Wehrenberg Theatres to provide movie tickets for one year good for 2012.  This promotion is valid in December and includes almost every type of licensed mode of transportation, including cars, trucks, boats, and RVs (running or not). 

“It is the season of giving,” said Dr. Lewis Chartock, President and CEO of MERS/Goodwill. “So, while you’ll receive the gift of movies for a year, by simply donating you are giving someone in your community a chance at a better life.  Wehrenberg Theatres is a great community partner, and we are excited to be able to offer area residents this unique and exciting opportunity.”

MERS/Goodwill’s promotion with Wehrenberg Theatres is good throughout the St. Louis metropolitan area, Springfield, Mo., Columbia, Mo., and Jefferson City, Mo.  MERS/Goodwill has operated its vehicle donation program for nearly six years, so they are efficient in making the process quick and easy. In addition, Goodwill provides free towing for all vehicles. 

“We are very excited to offer this one-of-a-kind promotion,” said Roni Vetter, who heads up the Vehicle Donation program for MERS/Goodwill.  “It’s the perfect time of year for this and it’s truly a win-win situation for the donor and the people that MERS/Goodwill helps.”

This offer is only valid in the month of December and while supplies last.  Some restrictions apply.  For more information or to donate, visit, call 314-241-3464 or toll free at 1-866-664-CARS (2277).
