Local Event Sponsorship & Community Support

October 5th, 2016

The thing we love most about living and working locally is being able to be involved in our communities. A number of our locations have been in business for over 20 years now. Most of the members of the United Tire family have put down their roots near our locations long ago and we have raised our own families in the same communities we service. For the month of October, United Tire & Service is sponsoring two upcoming local events to help some worthy causes and support the communities we each call home.

Six Degrees of Delco

Our Concordville location is sponsoring the Six Degrees of Delco event on October 8th. The event celebrates the heritage and community of Delaware County and honors first responders and the heroic services they provide. Proceeds of the event will go to support the Delaware County Heroes Scholarship Fund, the Delaware County Fallen Fire Fighter and EMS Memorial, and the first responders’ training and education as it applies to people with disabilities and mental health issues. Owners of the United Tire Concordville location, Pete Getz and his wife Sue are proud “Friends of Six Degrees” sponsors of the upcoming event. They’ve been in business for 22 years and live and work in Delaware County. They were brought up in the area and are happy to give back to their community through this event.

Later in the month, on October 16th, the United Tire family is sponsoring the Steps4Hope Run/Walk. Steps4Hope is a foundation established in memory of Jonathan Moules, who lost his battle with addiction in 2014. The foundation itself, as well as the 5K, are committed to raising awareness of substance use disorders. The 3rd annual 5K run/walk will be held at Ridley Creek State Park. Downingtown location owners Ken Sylvester and his wife Susan are longtime friends of the Moules family and want to help them spread awareness about the disease of addiction, especially in the surrounding communities. This is the 3rd year United Tire is sponsoring this event.
