Watson Children’s Shelter: A Roemer’s “Act of Kindness”

Roemer’s Tire Factory extends its “60 Acts of Kindness” campaign by supporting Watson Children’s Shelter. Through January 31, 2014, a portion of EVERY sale will be donated to the Shelter to help Missoula kids in need.

PLUS,  Roemer’s will also match dollar for dollar, direct customer donations made to Watson’s while in the store. Customers will be asked at check-out whether they wish to donate a dollar to the Shelter. If they do, Roemer’s will match that contribution. (See details in the press release reprinted below.)

Helping Kids Learn to be Kids Again:
Roemer’s Tire Factory Extends an “Act of Kindness” to Watson Children’s Shelter

In keeping with their commitment to perform 60 Acts of Kindness during their 60th Anniversary year, Roemer’s Tire Factory in Missoula has teamed up with Watson Children’s Shelter to raise funds.  From now until the end of January 2014, Roemer’s Tire Factory will donate a portion of every sale to the Shelter.

According to Roemer’s owner, John Roemer, “Watson Children’s Shelter has helped local kids escape absolutely unthinkable situations for many years.” Roemer’s goal is to spotlight their work and help the Shelter raise money to continue their mission of teaching kids how to be kids again.

“The fundraising partnership is simple,” Roemer states. “It doesn’t matter whether you have your eye on some new snow tires, your car needs to be repaired, or you just need an oil change. A portion of every sale will go to the Watson Children’s Shelter through January 31, 2014.”

On January 2, Roemer’s added another way for its customers to get involved with the Watson’s cause. Any customer who wishes to contribute a dollar to the Shelter during their visit to the store will have their donation matched by Roemer’s.

Roemer says it’s all about helping people.  “As a local business, I feel a strong tie to the people of Missoula – especially those who are the most vulnerable.” Roemer adds, “This effort, along with each of our 60 Acts of Kindness, provides an opportunity to give back to the community that has supported Roemer’s tire sales and auto repair services during its 60 years of doing business in Missoula. It’s just our way of saying thanks.”
