Monteith’s Best One Tire and Auto Care donated reflectors to all grade school students in Elkhart County, Indiana after the death of three siblings in October.
About 20,000 battery-powered reflectors with blinking lights will be distributed starting this week. The lights are designed to be attached to the students’ backpack.
The tire company provide tires for over 300 buses in Elkhart County. One of the schools reached out to them to ask if they would sell these reflectors for the kids for their backpacks when they are getting on and off the bus. Monteith’s management team decided that they didn’t want to sell them, they just wanted to donate them to the schools.
This is just another great safety measure this district took to ensure all of their students get to and from school safely.
