SAFE MOBILITY PROJECT – In 2016, Goodyear established the Safe Mobility Project with Akron Children’s Hospital with a goal of reducing childhood injuries in the Akron, Ohio area. In 2020, this effort continued despite the pandemic. Child passenger safety seats and bicycle helmets were distributed through outdoor community pick-up events or curbside at the hospital, to accommodate social distancing. Prior to the pandemic, the project distributed bicycle helmets through local in-school “Safety Town” programs and provided teen safe driving education in local high schools. The team is preparing to re-launch these programs when students go back to in-person learning.
SAFE TRANSPORTATION – Associates in Thailand made a donation of Goodyear Cargo Max tires to a local hospital for use on their ambulances. The tires provide the ambulances with extended tread life and performance for fast, safe transport. Additionally, local Goodyear Autocare stores offer free service for the ambulances.
KEEP EUROPE MOVING – The Goodyear team in Germany and Poland launched an initiative to support frontline medical and paramedical personnel by providing free tire servicing and emergency tire support via the company’s Premio and Quick retail networks.
