Blue Valley Community Action Head Start greatly appreciated T.O. Haas Tires for their kind donation to one of our families.
Isaac Corter, son of Jim and Heather Corter, is battling cancer and receiving his treatments in Omaha. Their tires were very worn and Steve Glanz and T.O. Haas generously donated four new tires so the family could continue their trips safely.
It is inspiring to see a local business embrace the Community Action pledge, "Helping People. Changing Lives."
On behalf of the Corter family and Blue Valley Community Action, your help was very much appreciated, T.O. Haas!
