Interstate Batteries Inc. is supporting an initiative by TBC Corp. to support Ronald McDonald House Charities.
During the month of July Interstate Batteries will support Aligned in Hope, the campaign TBC formed with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). In addition to a donation, Interstate will also offer a $20 rebate with the purchase of a MT or MTP brand batteries from a participating NTB Tire & Service Center or Tire Kingdom location in July or August of 2020.
“At Interstate Batteries, we are committed to enriching lives in the communities we serve. We are honored to build upon this commitment and join our long-time partner TBC in supporting Aligned in Hope,” said Tyler Reeves, chief commercial officer at Interstate Batteries. “The mission of RMHC – to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families – is something we believe will make a positive impact on lives now and in the future.”
RMHC helps families with ill or injured children stay together, and close to the medical care their child needs at leading hospitals worldwide. Aligned in Hope provides support to RMHC and its local chapters through the following efforts:
- After leaving the hospital, RMHC families receive a special membership card offering lifetime discounts on tires and maintenance services at any Tire Kingdom and NTB Tire & Service Center in the United States.
- Tire Kingdom and NTB Tire & Service Centers provide discounted services for Ronald McDonald House shuttle vehicles used to transport families.
- The TBC companies provide discounted products used on the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, which provide access to medical, dental and health care resources in communities where children need it most.
- TBC associates at more than 600 Tire Kingdom and NTB Service Centers throughout 18 states have the opportunity to support local RMHC Chapters as a way of reinforcing the team’s commitment.
“On behalf of RMHC and the children and families we serve, I would like to thank NTB and Tire Kingdom for their continued support of the Aligned in Hope campaign and extend my appreciation to the Interstate Batteries team for their generosity,” said Sheila Musolino, CEO and president of Ronald McDonald House Charities. “Together, we are making a tremendous impact on the lives of families and their children as they fight to overcome medical hardships.”
Throughout its business TBC stresses corporate social responsibility, and says one of its core values focuses on it — leave everything better. TBC has initiatives that are driven by the company as well as initiatives that are associate-driven, all communicated to associates via a formalized program called TBC Driven To Give (#TBCDrivenToGive).
“We’re extremely fortunate to have partners like Interstate who, like all of us at TBC Corporation, feel strongly about supporting our communities,” said Erik R. Olsen, CEO and president of TBC Corp. “Together we are Aligned in Hope and we are excited about the opportunity to continue supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities and all of their efforts.”
