NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Hankook Tire America Corp. is working to make the holidays a little bit brighter for children and families throughout the Middle Tennessee community.
This year, the tire maker has partnered with the Salvation Army of Nashville to raise awareness for the organization's Angel Tree program, which provides new clothes and toys to children whose families otherwise could not afford them.
Hankook's support of the program included sponsoring Angel Tree promotional messages encouraging community support of the program. The messages were to air between November and January on Nashville's NBC television affiliate WSMV.
Additionally, Hankook employees participated in the Angel Tree program by purchasing and donating gifts, or by volunteering to sort and wrap the community-donated gifts.
"Hankook Tire values the well-being of the Middle Tennessee community, and we are happy to provide gifts to children who need them," Hankook Tire America Corp. President Hosung Suh said in a statement. "The holiday season is a special time, and Hankook wishes to make it an enjoyable season for everyone, especially those who are in difficult circumstances."
