(WBIR, Knoxville) - A local business is helping Mission of Hope raise money for its scholarship program by offering customers a deal on tires.

Fisher Tire will donate $20 to Mission of Hope every time someone comes in and buys a full set of Michelin tires between now and June 15th. Customers will also get a $70 rebate on the full set of tires.

Mission of Hope Executive Director Emmette Thompson says this will help put more graduating seniors in rural Appalachia on the road to success.

"I think when we think about scholarship and how we want our kids to finish school, we want to help these kids who are almost entirely, they really need a little bit of help. They're willing to make the commitment," said Thompson.

All three Fisher Tire locations in Knoxville are participating.

If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund you can go to www.missionofhope.org.
