Jiffy Lube of Indiana proudly honors Tracy Walters through their Do More™ initiative. Tracy is the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Turn Away No Longer, Inc., an organization that provides essentials to children in Madison County when entering the foster care system.
Tracy co-founded Turn Away No Longer, Inc, a 501(c)3 non-profit faith-based community organization, in October 2020. Turn Away No Longer focuses on making an impact on foster children in Madison County and Central Indiana.
At the time of their creation, there were over 800 children in foster care in Madison County alone. Many children are placed in the care of partner organizations like Benchmark Family Services, KidsPeace-Muncie, IN, and the Indiana Department of Child Services, with nothing more than the clothes they have on. Turn Away No Longer has changed that.
TANL has many projects that are able to function solely from community donations. Katie’s Closet is a foster closet for children to shop for free. Children can shop for clothing, shoes, hygiene products, toys, and other items. They also run the Swag Pack initiative, where they provide children with essentials that they might not have when entering care outside their homes. Each Swag Pack is age-specific, ranging from newborn to teen.
Tracy uses her vehicle to make emergency supply drop-offs to their partner organizations and to transport donations to various facilities across the state. Jiffy Lube of Indiana is happy to gift Tracy a year of free oil changes and AAA Hoosier Motor Club insurance coverage. Tracy has expressed her gratitude to Jiffy Lube of Indiana and the community who nominated her. The car care she will receive will allow her to help more families in need in Central Indiana.
