TBC delivered cool treats to a pair of hospitals in West Palm Beach, the hometown of the company's headquarters.

Leaders from TBC Corp.'s  Tire Kingdom business delivered some cool, sweet relief to the staff at St. Mary’s Medical Center and Palm Beach Children’s Hospital in West Palm Beach, Fla.

The company wanted to thank the workers caring for patients and families during COVID-19 and delivered Kona Ice snow cones to the facility. The company also visited Quantum House.

Tire Kingdom treated more than 225 hospital employees, and also shared the Essential Business Appreciation Offer with the team to communicate special discounts for front line workers available at all Tire Kingdom locations.

“We would like to thank the team at Tire Kingdom for this initiative," said Cynthia McCauley, the hospitals' CEO. "I know our staff is very appreciative of the support we’ve received from our community as we continue to provide compassionate care for our patients. The Kona Ice treat helped fill both the stomachs and hearts of many healthcare heroes at St. Mary’s Medical Center and Palm Beach Children’s Hospital."

The company then made a stop at Quantum House, a supportive home in West Palm Beach for families whose children are receiving treatment in Palm Beach County for serious medical conditions. Quantum House offers families lodging, meals and other services. Tire Kingdom and TBC Corp. have been supporters of Quantum House for several years.

“TBC proves time and time again to be the best of community partners and holds a very special place in the hearts of the children and families who stay at Quantum House,” said Robi Jurney, CEO of Quantum House.

These good deeds are part of TBC's corporate social responsibility. 

“Frontline workers at St. Mary’s Medical Center, Palm Beach Children’s Hospital and Quantum House continue to put their own lives at risk helping others. They are true superheroes,” said Erik Olsen, CEO and president of TBC Corp. “I am proud of our team’s efforts to give back to the community. And I am happy we’re able to bring some joy to the families at Quantum House who, on top of COVID, are fighting other battles. I hope we were able to help take their mind off their worries for a time and let the kids enjoy being kids.”
