RNR Tire Express Rewards Mom With a Car

May 11, 2022

RNR Tire Express picked a winner from more than 5,000 nominations for its 2022 Mother's Day Giveaway. The top prize: a 2022 Hyundai Kona.

The nominations told the stories of deserving mothers across the country. Some of those nominees were gifted with free sets of tires.

On the Friday before Mother's Day, the RNR team arrived at the workplace of Shante Johnson in Safety Harbor, Fla. A single mother of four children, she was nominated by her oldest daughter, who shared a glimpse of what her mother’s daily life entailed. From working two full-time jobs to provide for her family, traveling by bus and by foot for all transportation needs, to battling a recent diagnosis with breast cancer.

“So few make greater sacrifices or tirelessly give themselves to the extent that a mother does on a daily basis,” says Larry Sutton, founder and CEO of RNR Tire Express. “Hearing the countless stories that come in from all across the nation on mothers who are going the extra mile truly drives that point home, and makes this yearly give-back effort all the more rewarding for our entire team.” 

Johnson said, “My kids are amazing, and just to know that they recognize the hard work I put in for them is a beautiful thing. But for somebody to take notice of that outside of our family is an incredible feeling. Just getting tires would have been amazing. To get a brand new car is something that will help make things so much easier for my family.”
