As part of our ongoing commitment to our local communities, Hendrick Automotive Group is hosting our second company-wide food drive to help feed 10,000 families facing hunger. Our employees in 14 states are working with local food banks and collecting enough food to provide neighbors in need with 10,000 nutritious meals complete with a ham and pie sponsored by Hendrick Automotive Group.

Since 2001 we have provided a quality meal to more than 118,500 individuals, with the Thanksgiving meal drive in 2018 being the first drive to include every teammate across the country. To celebrate and build upon the success of that first nationwide project, we are inviting our customers and community to participate in the food drive going on now.

While our employees are busy collecting specific items and packing 10,000 meals, we are inviting you to donate additional nonperishable pantry items to give to our partner food banks for their ongoing efforts. If we’ve learned one thing from partnering with 25 food banks, it’s that hunger is a year-round issue, so inviting others to donate with us will expand the number of people we are able to help.

Our food bank partners especially need donations of items like peanut butter, canned tuna and chicken, shelf-stable milk, apple sauce, canned low-sodium vegetables, canned soups and rice.

Contact your local Hendrick dealership for more information about where and when they will be accepting donations. Click here to see a list of our locations.
