Tire store collects back to school donations

<p>Dorothy Smith, Stephanie Noble and Edith Holt of Altrusa International of Hermiston accept school supplies from Hermiston Tire Store. The business held a school supply donation from June-August.</p>

An effort by Hermiston Tire Store will benefit local schoolchildren.

The local business collected school supplies from its customers from June through August. Items collected were then given to Altrusa International of Hermiston. The service club readily accepted the donations and is distributing them to local schools to be given to students in need.

Founded in 1917, Altrusa International includes civic-minded people who are interested in creating better communities. Last year club members volunteered more than 1 million hours worldwide.
