CINCINNATI — The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) will have $200,000 more in its coffers to help veterans, their families and caregivers, thanks to Tire Discounters.
The family-owned and independent dealership has raised that sum for the WWP, exceeding the dealership's 2021 donation by more than $70,000.
A Louisville-based store collected the most money for "It's Our Turn," Tire Discounters' program for raising the funds.
On Nov. 17, a check was presented at the Louisville location, featuring Anna Wood, managing director; Steven Wood, vice president; store general manager Andrew Alexander; area field manager Dan Greet; and marketing manager Sergio Luca among those in attendance.
Charles Curlee, Tire Discounters senior vice president of retail sales and U.S. Marine Corps veteran, said customers exceeded expectations in support of the charity.
"Wounded Warrior Project is very close to home for Tire Discounters, as we employ many reservists, active veterans and their spouses at our locations," Curlee said. "Thank you to everyone who participated and allowed us to continue to support the men and women who have sacrificed to keep us safe."
