Hankook expands partnership with DAV (Disabled American Veterans)

Hankook Tire continues support for the veteran community by expanding its commitment to DAV (Disabled American Veterans), an organization that provides free services to veterans of all generations where they live. In the fourth year of its partnership with DAV, Hankook is donating $175,000 to increase its support of DAV’s Mobile Service Office (MSO) program and award a new vehicle to help veterans in the company’s hometown of Nashville get to and from their medical appointments.

“Hankook Tire is proud of how we’ve grown our partnership with DAV over the past four years,” said Hankook Tire America Corp. President Hosung Suh. “With each year of our partnership, we’ve increased the number of veterans we’ve been able to help across the country. We’re honored to be able to give back to even more veterans this year, by bringing DAV’s benefits assistance services to 12 cities across the country and throughout the Nashville area.”

Through DAV’s MSO program, DAV National Service Officers drive their “office on wheels” across the country to counsel and assist veterans and educate them and their families on the benefits and services earned in service. This program extends DAV’s benefits assistance to veterans who might not be able to access it otherwise due to distance, transportation, health or other various reasons. Hankook continues its promise to help American veterans through mobility by doubling the number of Hankook-sponsored DAV MSO stops year-over-year. To bring DAV’s claims specialists to veterans in their local communities at a national scale, Hankook partners with tire dealers and distributors across the country. Below is Hankook’s 2018 MSO stop schedule:

“We’re so grateful for Hankook’s growing and continued support, which further enables DAV to ensure our promises are kept to the men and women who served,” DAV National Adjutant and CEO Marc Burgess said. “Now in our fourth year of the partnership, we thank Hankook Tire for the valuable role the company plays in helping us ensure that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them, to empower them to lead high quality lives with respect and dignity.”
