Tire Kingdom Service Centers, a leader in the automotive aftermarket space headquartered in Palm Beach Gardens, worked alongside the American Heart Association to re-imagine and reinvent a staff lounge at Royal Palm Beach High School.
On Wednesday, Aug. 4, Tire Kingdom and the AHA unveiled a staff lounge that was transformed into a wellness area in an effort to improve mental and physical health for teachers, faculty and staff, enabling them to continue to provide the best support for students.
The Royal Palm Beach High School wellness lounge includes an accent wall, comfy furniture, meditation tools and wellness items, such as blood pressure cuffs, logs and instruction manuals. Tire Kingdom also shared its peel-a-deal cards with the team to provide special discounts at Tire Kingdom locations.
Royal Palm Beach High School is dedicated to meeting the holistic needs of all students.
“Teachers have, in my opinion, the most important job of all in taking care of our children, but before they can take care of children, they’ve got to take care of themselves. This room is great. We appreciate the American Heart Association and Tire Kingdom for helping us out with this. It’s great for the staff, it’s great for the school and it’s great for the community,” Principal Dr. Jesús Armas said.
For more than 10 years, Tire Kingdom, a division of TBC Corporation, has been a proud supporter of the AHA. In 2016, Tire Kingdom led the Palm Beach County Heart Walk campaign, which raised $1.1 million for the mission of the American Heart Association, the most money raised in Palm Beach County Heart Walk history. Corporate social responsibility is an integral component of TBC Corporation and all its business units, spanning retail, franchise, wholesale, distribution and e-commerce.
“We are excited to further develop our partnership with the American Heart Association by sponsoring, volunteering and promoting new initiatives in Palm Beach County,” said Brian Maciak, general counsel and chief compliance officer of TBC Corporation. “We are committed to building a culture of health and wellness, and re-imagining the staff lounge at Royal Palm Beach High School allowed us the opportunity to work together to build a healthy Palm Beach County.”
