To you, it's an old car that's just sitting around. Maybe it needs a bit of repair... Maybe it needs a LOT of repair. To someone without a car, it can be a blessing that you can't imagine.
Once again, we're asking you to donate that old car to the Angel Car program. Tires Tires Tires is working with Life 96.5 and Sioux Empire Wheels to Work to find, repair and donate vehicles to needy families in the Sioux Empire.
Donate Your Car
We're looking for just about anything. Just call Tires Tires Tires in Sioux Falls at 605-271-8800. We'll set up a time to come evaluate your vehicle to see if it's suitable to become an Angel Car. Even if you think your car needs a major repair, call us and let us take a look.
There are a lot of families right here in the Sioux Empire that can benefit from Angel Cars, but we need your vehicle. Please consider making your donation. Donating your car could bring you a very nice tax deduction in return (check with your tax preparer).

The Sioux Falls Wheels to Work program handles the application process to become an Angel Car recipient. You can contact Karen via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 605-941-4318 to learn how to apply.

Siouxland Angel Cars
We are a group of partner organizations motivated to give individuals some assistance in building a productive future. Have you ever stopped to think for a moment how your life would be without easy access to transportation of living without your car for a week? Not many of us ponder that thought ever becoming our reality. But seriously, just for a moment, reflect on how those 'wheels' provide you with the ability to cover the necessary distance of living in the Midwest, the opportunity to get to work and earn that purchasing power which puts food on your table, clothes on your back and a roof over your head...remove the freedom of having those wheels.....now you become dependent on other means of transportation. Family, friends, taxi or riding the bus are options but will bring great changes to your lifestyle. Now you might be getting the picture.
Within the Siouxland Community there are some truly generous people who have made the decision to contribute their time and experience to changing the lives of those who are trapped by the restrictions of limited or no access to means that would open the door to a better tomorrow. Below is a list of businesses that have stepped up to the challenge but one small piece is missing....your contribution.

Help on the Homefront
Big thanks for your support of Help on the Homefront! You helped us raise over $15,000 in food and cash to help Siouxland Vets and Military Families.
On October 20th, Support Siouxland Soldiers brought over their big truck and you helped fill it up. Not only that, but we got a number of job opportunities, too.

Spirit of Volunteerism Award
Tires Tires Tires Inc. received one of two Spirit of Volunteerism Corporate Humanitarian Awards May 4th. Independent Insurance Agents of Sioux Falls sponsors this award. The Spirit of Volunteerism Luncheon is an annual event held by the HELP! Line Center. This event celebrates the impact volunteers make on the Sioux Empire community. Amy Olson-Miller of Independent Insurance Agents of Sioux Falls presented the award.
Tires Tires Tires was nominated by Life 96.5. Owners Dale & Dan Nothdurft had a vision to provide safe, reliable vehicles at no cost to community members in need. They had the tools, the time and the talent to donate, but needed the cars. Life 96.5 loved the idea, and told listeners about the cause through the on-air Angel Cars Promotion. The goal was 10 donated cars – and Tires Tires Tires received 75. Some could be repaired, others were used for parts. In the end, 41 needy families received vehicles to help with transportation for daycare, school and work by partnering with Wheels to Work. Tires Tires Tires generously donated more than $35,000 in repairs to these cars. Each car was worked on with care, making sure all cars were going to be reliable and safe. Their efforts have made it possible for single-parent families to find self sufficiency, and hope for a brighter future.
