Henry has donated meals, clothing and personal care items for the past 15 years to homeless people and to families in the area who have gone through difficult times. Henry says that despite his own struggles, he knows there are people out there who are struggling and need a helping hand to get back on their feet.
“For us, it has always been a question of community. We have built our business around the community. We fostered community within our environment, we loved and served each other in our store and it rubbed off. That’s what you see coming back to us, ”said Howard Tire and Auto owner Howard Henry.
Howard says he would like to thank his community partners and volunteers who helped make his annual holiday season event a success.
