Established by Phil Scott in 2005, Wheels for Warmth has three goals:
- Supporting emergency heating assistance
- Providing safe, affordable tires
- Rescuing old tires from the waste stream
In fourteen years, Wheels for Warmth has raised more than $400,000 for emergency fuel assistance, sold more than 17,000 safe donated tires, and recycled more than 28,000 unsafe tires.
100% of proceeds from tire sales, disposal fees and contributions go directly to emergency heating programs at Capstone Community Action, Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity, and BROC Community Action.
