Undoubtedly you’ll have a chance to save some cash on go-fast parts as many speed merchants offer sales around the Memorial Day weekend. While many are looking forward to enjoying the long weekend, we must not forget that the holiday is meant to celebrate our fallen heroes. As such, VMP Performance isn’t having a sale. Instead it is donating a portion of its weekend sales to charity.
We wanted to give back to the community, while underscoring what Memorial Day is really about… — Justin Starkey, VMP Performance
“We wanted to give back to the community, while underscoring what Memorial Day is really about — those who have sacrificed their lives for our country. A percentage of sales will go to the charity Honoring Our Fallen. A fellow car-nut, and veteran himself, Justin Young (of Mod Motor Mustangs), helped us choose this charity,” Justin Starkey, of VMP Performance, said. “Honoring Our Fallen helps support families who have lost loved ones while in service to the United States. As a parent with five young children, I cannot imagine the grief my children would endure if they lost one of us. Honoring Our Fallen has a variety of programs to support children and their families when they lose a loved one.”
That is certainly a worthy way to honor the Memorial Day holiday, as VMP will donate 5 percent of the proceeds from its sales from today through Tuesday May 29 to the charity, which offers support to military families from the moment they learn they have lost a loved one.
