Tire Discounters, a family-owned and operated tires and automotive services company has always treated their customers like family.  That’s why when Louisville customers Erin and Chris Hosking decided to donate their car to the Carey family, Tire Discounters jumped in to support them. “I was so blown away by their generosity. The Hosking family may have donated a car, but they gave the Carey family so much more than a car.  Catherine no longer has to worry about how she’ll get Haylie to Cincinnati for treatment” Charles Curlee, Vice President Retail Sales.

Catherine Carey’s 13-year-old daughter Haylie is in liver failure and is awaiting a transplant. For the past few months, her family has been making trips to Cincinnati, so she can receive treatment. On a recent trip home, the family’s car caught fire, leaving them without a way to get Haylie to treatment.  “When I saw her story it really hit home with me. My father went through a liver transplant ten years ago and is on the list again for a kidney and liver. We also have a daughter who is chronically ill that we take to Cincinnati, so we know the route well and I couldn't imagine not having what I needed to get her the care that she needs,” said Tire Discounters customer Erin Hosking.

On Friday, October 12th, at the Tire Discounters on Von Allen Rd. in Louisville, KY the Hosking and Carey families met to officially hand over the keys. “We really have the best customers and are honored to be a part of this. We wanted to do something extra to help out, so Tire Discounters donated gas gift cards, an alignment, a year’s worth of oil changes, and completed a full safety inspection.” Said Denny Patterson, Tire Discounters Regional Manager.
