Tire Discounters Inc. has raised $40,000 to support Wounded Warrior Project via a fundraising event that was held across the dealership's 135-plus stores.

Tire Discounters' customers generated $19,934 and the Cincinnati, Ohio-based company donated the remainder of the total by contributing a $1 donation per customer for social media shares and in-person store visits. 

The $40,000 sum nearly doubles what Tire Discounters and its customers generated together last year.

“Tire Discounters is proud to support veterans through this donation and by employing many reservists, active duty, veterans and their spouses,” says Charles Curlee, Tire Discounters vice president, retail sales, and a former U.S. marine. 

Funds raised in support of Wounded Warrior Project help enable programs and services for veterans, including access to mental and physical health care, employment assistance and education services. 

“The support we receive from Tire Discounters helps Wounded Warrior Project empower, employ, and engage warriors in their communities," says Gary Corless, the charity's chief development officer.
