Harold Hewett checked out the four brand new tires on his truck Wednesday morning.

Hewett, who is on a fixed income, was the victim of tire vandals last month in his New Castle neighborhood.

The owner of Rhino Linings of Delaware heard his story and felt compelled to help.

"You know, you can't cure everything and you can't help everybody," said owner Guy Campbell. "But if small businesses and people get involved, it can lift one person's spirits and that can carry on."

"It meant a lot to me," Hewett told Action News, "because my truck would still be parked with four flat tires."
