Company hopes to raise more than $10,000 for WNY Heroes
BUFFALO, NY – Dunn Tire, Western New York's leading tire retailer and automotive services provider, is giving customers a chance to be a hero in support of the area's many military heroes by participating in the Stars for Heroes program.
Throughout the month of May, customers at all 29 Dunn Tire locations in New York and Pennsylvania will be able to purchase a special star in support of WNY Heroes, a local veterans' assistance organization. For a minimum donation of $1, customers can purchase the star and put their name and a message of support on it. The stars will be displayed throughout the store during May. Dunn Tire officials hope to raise more than $10,000 for WNY Heroes through the program.
"There are so many brave, honorable military veterans living in our community who deserve our gratitude and, more important, our support, in recognition of their service and sacrifice," said Robert Clark, managing director of retail operations, Dunn Tire. "The work that WNY Heroes does for, with and on behalf of our community's veterans is remarkable. As a local company, we are happy to support them in their mission to support other veterans here in Western New York, and we hope our customers will once again join the effort."
