Media Partners Help Hendrick Automotive Group Fight Hunger

May 10th, 2019 by

This year’s first company-wide Spring Meal Drive was a tremendous success. Throughout the 14 states in which we operate, teammates came together and donated enough food to help feed more than 40,000 people. These complete, traditional meals packaged non-perishable side items with a fresh ham and pie, feeding a family of four and giving them an opportunity to sit down together and share a meal during a special time of the year.

In Charlotte, teammates from area dealerships and support offices gathered together at Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to pack more than 3,00 meals. A meal packing event of this size needed a lot of planning and logistics and was quite impressive to witness. Our media partners, including the WCCB team who put together this fantastic story, joined us to help tell the story and raise awareness about hunger in the community.

 

 

Hendrick Automotive Group teammates in Charleston gathered with the local military magnet school to pack 1,000 meals at Lowcountry Food Bank. This meal packing event fed 4,000 people throughout Charleston and North Charleston, and our partners from the media were there to chronicle this incredible journey. Check out this tremendous piece that Charleston’s WCSC put together.

 

 

We want to thank our media friends for helping put a spotlight on those fighting hunger in our community. We look forward to our Thanksgiving meal drive this fall!
