Kal Tire Does Good Deeds Up and Down the Valley

My children and I would like to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You have made us feel safer with new winter tires this season,” - a mother in need

This past week, a single mother in Oliver was in need. She had to drive through the mountains to pick up her children for the holidays, but lacked snow tires for the journey. Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs knew this mother was in need of snow tires and knew that Kal Tire would be a reliable business to turn to.

Kal Tire provided the mother with snow tires at cost so she could safely see her kids. Without the tires, the mother would have likely have missed seeing her children over the holidays. “Kaltire believes in supporting families in the community in which we operate. It has always been our pleasure to support Okanagan Boys Girls Clubs,” said Tony of Kal Tire.

This act of kindness was not the first time Kal Tire has made a difference for the community. For the past four years, Kal Tire has created five food and gift hampers for kids, youth, and families in the Okanagan. This year, Kal Tire is helping five families as well as our Downtown Youth Shelter and PennyLane youth accommodations. These hampers give people the chance to enjoy the holiday season with little financial burden.

“We can’t thank Kal Tire enough for the positive difference they make in our community. When we ask for something they are more than willing to help. When we don’t ask they are more than willing to help. They are true community partners with great community spirit,” said Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs CEO Diane Entwistle.


Kal Tire is Canada’s largest independent tire dealer and North America’s largest commercial tire dealer. Over the last 60 years, customers have grown to trust Kal Tire for its commitment to service and integrity. Today, there are more than 250 Kal Tire stores from British Columbia to Ontario, with more opening each year.
