Adopt a Family
During the fall Discount Tire Outlet Tire Pros adopts area families for the holidays and we love on them. We cover their Thanksgiving and Christmas meal and toys for the kids. For Christmas we wrap our delivery truck with 1,400 Christmas lights and set out to deliver food baskets. Even Santa comes out with us to help. In some neighborhoods we just pull up and lay on the horn, and when the kids start coming out of their houses we just love on them too. It’s one thing when a child receives a toy, but when Santa is hand delivering their Christmas meal and some toys for them that will be in their minds forever.
