Missoula, Mont.—Les Schwab Tire Centers will donate more than $151,000 worth of new tires to assist the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) to generate significant conservation fundraising dollars for its mission.
“We greatly appreciate Les Schwab Tire Centers for both their generosity and long-standing support of elk, elk country, hunting and the RMEF,” said Steve Decker, RMEF vice president of marketing. “They have stood by our side for nearly two decades and this latest action will accelerate our ability to do even more measurable conservation work.”
Headquartered in Bend, Ore., with more than 480 locations across the West, Les Schwab has helped RMEF raise more than $2.8 million and conserve or enhance more than 17,200 acres of elk habitat.
Tabbed the ‘RMEF Ready Your Elk Rig Tire Drawing,’ 126 different RMEF chapters across California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming will each receive one set of four Mazama Open Range A/T tires for a raffle/drawing.
“We are a family-owned organization with more than 67 years of history in the West and we understand the importance of conserving both our natural spaces and our heritage,” said Greg L’Hommedieu, vice president, Store Sales & Operations. “We value the work RMEF does to encourage environmental stewardship and conservation in our community and are proud to provide this donation to support its mission.”
