Big O Tires Partners with DonorsChoose

Big O Tires has donated over $63,000 equating to 222 funding projects, 209 schools served and 221 teachers supported, the company said.

Big O Tires announced a new partnership with DonorsChoose to give back to public schools. DonorsChoose is a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to make it easy for anyone to help a teacher in need, moving us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education.

Since 2000, DonorsChoose has assisted in funding more than 2 million projects supporting public school teachers and students from every corner of America, spanning every subject and grade level. Teachers request the resources their students need to thrive which equates to something different for every classroom with an average cost of only $538 for a fully funded program. With 86% of public school teachers nationwide posting requests for classroom resources, projects and experiences, DonorsChoose has been able to deliver 7.68 million books, 1.98 million art supplies and fund over 28,000 school trips, the company said.

To date, Big O Tires has donated over $63,000, equating to 222 funded projects, 209 schools served and 221 teachers supported. Through this alliance, they will continue to work together to provide classroom resources for teachers, ultimately inspiring students love of learning, according to Big O Tires.

For over 60 years, Big O Tires franchisees have supported their local and national communities with legendary service and with the establishment of the Big O Big Hearts Program they also support causes to strengthen and improve their neighborhoods. This formalized program is an integral part of The Team You Trust solidifying their promise to not only work hard every day to gain trust, but a promise to champion causes to support the community, the company said.

Natural rubber production holds several opportunities for improvement in both environmental and social terms, BKT said. The expansion of rubber plantations is likely to influence tropical forests, but by means of sustainable practices, it is possible to protect biodiversity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Similarly, ensuring dignified working conditions and respecting workers' rights on rubber plantations is central to promoting an ethical and sustainable industry, according to BKT.
