One Year of Treats at Del-Nat Worth the Calories - Tire Review Magazine

One Year of Treats at Del-Nat Worth the Calories

Del-Nat Tire Corp. employees might have gained a few pounds through bake sales this past year to help Dream Factory raise $1,742 in funds. The company’s effort helped 14-year-old Grace, who has cerebral palsy, to experience her dream trip.
“We had different events on the third Friday of five different months – pie day, bake sales, pot luck lunch, ice cream sundaes and a soup Friday,” said Dell Stone, the company’s senior administrative manager. “It probably wasn’t good for our waist lines, but it was good for our hearts. We also had ‘Jean Day’ each month when people on those Fridays could pay $5 and wear jeans to work.”
Stone said it was a fun way to give Grace something she had dreamed of – riding in a pink limo to a shopping spree at a popular Memphis, Tenn., mall.
Del-Nat has been involved with charities and local causes since 2006. Each year since then, they vote on a cause to support. The list includes Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Grace and her family thanked Del-Nat employees for her “special day.”
“It’s neat to meet the people who sponsored her,” said Gayle Boysen, Grace’s mother. “I had never heard of Del-Nat before, but now they’ll always be in my heart.”
