Curry’s Auto Service Named Finalist for Public Service Award

Curry’s Auto Service, headquartered in Gainesville, Virginia, has been selected as a finalist for the Washington Area Jefferson Awards for Public Service.
Matt and Judy Curry, co-founders of Curry’s Auto Service, have donated their time and money, totaling more than $300,000 to 57 national and regional charitable groups, churches, parent-teacher associations and youth athletic clubs since they started the company in 1997.
In 2006, Matt took a two-year leave of absence from his day-to-day business as CEO of Curry’s Auto Service to raise $209,000, with which he launched Dulles South Youth Sports (DSYS). More than 1,600 area children and teens participate in the DSYS leagues. The Currys continue to advise the organization and help fund DSYS needs, including starting a scholarship field fund in the hope that DSYS will have its own private playing field some day.
Matt serves on the Board of Directors of Final Salute, an organization that provides housing for female veterans. Other charities the Currys support include Joe Gibbs’ Youth for Tomorrow, which provides education, counseling and residential homes to help disadvantaged youth become responsible members of society; Food for Others, which provides free food to unemployed and low-income families; the TigerLily Foundation, which provides breast cancer support, education and advocacy; the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members; and individual school and church groups located within the communities associated with Curry’s nine locations.
