American Red Cross Annual Heroes Celebration

American Red Cross Annual Heroes Celebration

The American Red Cross Eastern Pennsylvania Region, Northeastern Pennsylvania chapter, recently held their annual Heroes Celebration in Wilkes-Barre, PA. McCarthy Tire Service was deeply honored to receive the Community Impact Hero Award for our maintenance of their fleet.

Lead by our truck service manager, Kevin Duffy, our team works diligently to keep every vehicle in the fleet in tip-top condition. The American Red Cross provides a critical service in our community. If needed, we complete jobs overnight, provide roadside assistance, and once, when drivers were in short supply, we drove a mobile blood drive bus to a scheduled collection.

In addition to recognizing McCarthy Tire at the ceremony, American Red Cross Executive Director Bill Goldsworthy presented us with an award, and a beautiful print signed by local author, Sue Hand’s Imagery. Several representatives also personally delivered lunch to our truck service team in our Wilkes-Barre PA store, a gesture that meant the world to our guys!
