When Zach first began his professional journey, he came across a verse that read "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?". This verse encouraged Zach to create a purpose for Direct Tire beyond being profitable. After months of brainstorming, Zach finally developed Positive Patriot.
Positive Patriot is a program dedicated to lending a helping hand to single parents and showing military veterans that we've got their six. Being raised by a single parent as a child, Zach knows first hand how it impacts everyone involved. Since Zach wasn't able to help his mother then, this is his way of helping other single parents stress a little less and smile a little more. Zach's decision to include military veterans in Positive Traction came from a grateful heart. Understanding without the consistent support and sacrifice of the United States Military, he would not be able to chase his dream of being a local business owner.
For every thirty sets of four tires or wheels that Direct Tire sells, Positive Patriot will give away a set of free tires. Positive Patriot recipients will alternate between these two resilient groups of people and be local to the Austin area. Positive Patriot is giving away its first set of tires to a disabled military veteran on May 30, 2017.
"Being a single parent is not a life full of struggles, but a journey for the strong."
"On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no man behind. As a nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no Veteran behind."
