We Love Our Community

lovecommunity womanboySteve and Lori Stymeist and all of us at Stymeist Auto Body Collision Centers are committed to serving this community which has supported us enthusiastically for more than 30 years. We do more than donate money and services of value to local charities. We actively participate in fund drives as leaders and workers.

We encourage you to join us by giving generously and volunteering in El Dorado County causes and in particular the Placerville and Jackson areas.

Stymeist Collision Centers was selected as the Community Service Business of the Year for 2015 by the El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce. Read more, including a link to an article in the Mt. Democrat quoting Steve and Lori Stymeist about why they believe in giving back to the community here.

Coats for Local Kids

Stymeist Auto Body - Coats for Kids - Placerville JacksonIn our 3rd Annual Coats for Local Kids drive (2011) we collected 300+ coats for needy kids in El Dorado County and 130+ coats in Amador County. Lori Stymeist spearheads this effort each year, combining forces with the national Coats for Kids Foundation, the Placerville Rotary Club and many other local volunteer people and agencies. We encourage you to help us increase the number of coats collected next holiday season by watching for sales through the year and collecting new coats for boys and girls, infants through teens. The drive kicks off in November. Contact Lori Stymeist for more information or join our email list to receive updates.

Lori Stymeist - Rotary Lobster on the River - Placerville

Steve and Lori enjoy participating year-round in the many community causes supported by the Rotary Club in Placerville. It's a great group of people who are generous and service minded. Two super fun and successful events are the annual Lobster on the River in Coloma and The Bon Voyage Ball at the El Dorado County fairgrounds. Come enjoy great food, music and dancing. It's a painless way to support important community causes. See you there!
