“Tan” was an amazing influence in the lives of many. He was a great son, brother, uncle, friend, and role model. When Tanner passed away in a tragic accident, his parent, Brad and Diane Holt, founders of Tan’s Treats, were devastated and determined to live a life like their son had lived.
When Tanner was in elementary school his Mom noticed that he was coming home from school starving. When she approached him about it, she learned that he had been giving his lunch to a boy in his class that did not have lunch. For the rest of the school year, Tanner took two lunches to school, one for himself and one for his friend. What better way to continue Tanner’s legacy than to make sure that all children have the food that they need every day. The goal was to provide food on weekends and holiday breaks, when school lunch programs did not provide meals. The Holt’s started “Tan’s Treats” so they could keep on giving the way that Tanner would have.
Tan’s Treats is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of children in the community. They have one main purpose, and that is to provide weekend meals for children in need.
Every year Tan’s Treats delivers over 260,000 meals to children facing food insecurity at 13 schools throughout Washington County. Due to their selfless service and dedication to their cause, the Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce proudly honors Tan’s Treats founders Brad and Diane Holt as Hurricane Valley Heroes.
