[Sponsored Report] Kumho Tire spreads the warmth

Kumho Tire has been organizing community sharing activities throughout the year.

The company’s most recent activity was “Gimjang Sharing,” which took place on Dec. 10. Gimjang means making kimchi. Kumho Tire employees rolled up their sleeves to turn some 400 cabbages into kimchi, which were donated to the Welfare Center for the Disabled in Dongjak District, southern Seoul. The center later delivered the kimchi to over 100 disadvantaged households.

Last month, Kumho Tire employees bought and delivered 6,000 coal briquettes to low-income families and seniors living in Samseong-dong, Gwanak District, southern Seoul.

In August, the company hosted a meal sharing event at the aforementioned center. At the venue, the company staff cooked, served lunch and hand-delivered side dishes to low-income households with disabled family members.

Kumho Tire’s work in offering support to the physically disabled started back in 2013. For three years, the company has organized various social and cultural programs for the handicapped, including tourism trips, musical viewing and camping.
