LEXINGTON, Ky. — S&S Tire Corp. recently raised funds to help a local sheriff's deputy shot in the line of duty.
On Sept. 11 Deputy Jaime Morales of the Scott County (Ky.) Sheriff's Office, along with other members of law enforcement, was attempting to take a suspected serial bank robber into custody when he was shot. The injury left him paralyzed.
Lexington-based S&S Tire Corp.'s account manager, Jameson Reynolds, enlisted Ron and Jason Shade of S&S Tire & Auto Service-Beaumont Center in Lexington to raise funds for the downed officer. They sponsored a free cookout at the store, took donations and sold T-shirts emblazoned with #217Strong (Deputy Morales' badge number).
