There is currently a fundraiser in place called Help us, Help Carl. Whether it is a $1 or $10,000 all donations are greatly appreciated. The goal is to raise $10,000 to help Carl.

Donations can be made in person at Ricky’s Tire and Auto as well as by mail. Please include your name and telephone number. Mail to: Ricky’s Tire and Auto, 1534 Sunset Blvd. West Columbia, S.C. 29169. 

Upon donation, participants will be placed in a drawing to win two tickets to see Brantley Gilbert, $100 service to Mooneyhan’s Auto Service and a free alignment with a set of brand new tires from Ricky’s Tire and Auto. The drawing will be this Friday, Feb. 2.

He is the type of person that if I needed help, he would be walking up and down the streets with a sign in his hand.” Even a small donation could make a big difference,” said Ricky.
