Our charity week was held in July of 2021 and we donated $35,000 to 15 organizations.
In July of 2021 Rent One and RNR Tire Express worked hard to seek out organizations representing our 100+ Locations across 8 states. We were seeking opportunities to support small organizations that focused on children’s needs in our area. We were overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and dedication from these organizations that support the youth in our local areas. It is with pleasure we announce the recipients:

In addition to our grant initiative we also hosted a book drive in each of our location and estimate we have received over 2000 books that our communities can utilize at will for no cost.
Our final act was to do an act of kindness to a local first responder team where we had each store take lunch or supplies to those groups. We had amazing participation and estimate we reached over 150 first responder locations and around 750 actual first responders.
We look forward to our 2022 Charity week to continue the tradition and do it even better!
