Since 2014, Plaza Tire Service has donated more than $56,500 to the children's hospital.

“A cancer diagnosis is hard for anyone, but this is especially true for kids,” says Mark Rhodes, president of Plaza Tire Service. “This is an easy way for us to help raise money to support the care provided by St. Jude’s for children with cancer.”

“With St. Jude, there’s no question your donation is helping children now and in the future,” says Scott Rhodes, vice president of Plaza Tire Service. “They provide world-class care to these kids at no cost to their families and invest in research to continue improving the outcomes for children with cancer.”

Plaza Tire Service has a history of charitable support, and the Rhodes brothers who lead the Cape Girardeau, Mo.-based tire dealership are the winners of Modern Tire Dealer's 2017 Tire Dealer of the Year Award.

Plaza Tire Service ranks No. 18 on the MTD 100.
