Dealership Helps Police Officer Couple After Vehicle Vandalism

October 30, 2015 0 Comments

A Ford store is receiving praise after their staff took it upon themselves to help local police. It only took a few minutes of effort, but staff at this dealership made a difference in the lives of those who sign up to protect and serve.

Staff at Dick Brantmeier Ford in Sheboygan, Wisconsin took the time to help victims of vandalism. Brandon and Holly Kehoe, a married couple who are both on the Sheboygan police force, ran into a potentially expensive hardship when vandals slashed tires on their vehicles. The Kehoe family intended to visit a pumpkin patch with their children ages four and seven, only to discover tires slashed on both family vehicles. The cost of repair was going to be over $1,000.

Holly Kehoe spoke about the difficult position that the family was placed in due to the vandalism. Speaking to the Sheboygan press, Holly said, “Christmas is coming up, and we have two kids, so I was devastated. We don’t have that kind of money to throw down just because someone doesn’t like the police.”

Despite the high costs, the couple came to the Ford store looking for repairs. Seeing a family in a hard situation, the team at Dick Brantmeier Ford sprung into action.

Greg Wilker, the service manager at Dick Brantmeier Ford wanted to help. Wilker told WTMJ, “I said I know we’re not supposed to do this but can we…within ten or fifteen minutes we got it figured out.” In the case of Wilker and the young couple, “figure it out,” meant calling contacts at Ford and cutting the cost of the tire replacement by $500.

What do you think of this dealership’s work to help this family? What other dealers do you know about who have extended a helping hand to individuals or families in difficult situations?
