Community Tire Retreading Donates to TIA Foundation

St. Louis, Mo.-based Community Tire Retreading has donated $2,000 to the Tire Industry Association Foundation to help support the development of tire technician training programs.

Community Tire Retreading gathered the donation from a portion of its winnings from an OTR tire contest at the North American Tire & Retread Expo.

“We want to thank Mike Berra, Jr. and the entire Community Tire family for their generosity to the TIA Foundation. Donations to the foundation help TIA provide the best tire technician training programs in the industry. These programs improve the safety of our workplaces and our roadways. We couldn’t do what we do without the generosity of folks like Mike,” said Roy Littlefield, TIA executive vice president.
