Goodyear has underlined its commitment to the local community through its renewed support of St John Ambulance Malaysia (SJAM) for the sixth consecutive year. Goodyear Malaysia recently donated 36 units of 185R14C G28 tyres to the SJAM-Kawasan Pantai Selangor chapter to be fitted on its fleet of Toyota Hiace ambulances.

“Goodyear is pleased to be supporting SJAM again as we believe that their efforts in social and humanitarian work benefits the local community and creates a long term vision for the country at large. It also further supports Goodyear’s commitment of encouraging community safety,” said Richard Fleming, MD of Goodyear Malaysia.

Goodyear’s Global Philanthropic Program identifies recipients based on whether it meets civic, economic and educational growth as well as the opportunity to improve social and physical community health. Under Goodyear’s community outreach program, support can be extended in the form of grants, sponsorships, in-kind donations as well as volunteer opportunities for Goodyear associates. Grant proposals with a safety focus are given highest priority.

SJAM is one of the oldest non-governmental organizations in Malaysia that promotes the teaching of First Aid and related health care issues to the community. It carries out projects such as mass CPR training, Citizen Action and Response in Emergencies (CARE) and First Aid Training Projects designed to place a first aider in every home across the country.
