The Lowcountry’s First Fundraiser of 2015 DRIVE FOR HUNGER

The Lowcountry's First Fundraiser of 2015:   DRIVE FOR HUNGER Extended thru January 31st, 2015

Rent, electricity, gas, medicine or food, which could you live without?  This is the question facing thousands of people each day, some may be our neighbors, our coworkers, or relatives.  In our community, 28% receive food from the safety net provided by the Lowcountry Food Bank and East Cooper Community Outreach.  Rick Hendrick BMW Charleston and the other local dealers, are proud to help sponsor “Drive for Hunger”.

Due to the successes our dealerships experienced in 2014, we wanted to find a way to give back to our community.  We began our Drive for Hunger two weeks ago, but, we have decided to extend the program. 

It’s easy to assist! Hendrick employees and clients are already busy dropping off donations of nonperishable food, canned goods, winter coats and other needed supplies at Rick Hendrick BMW Charleston.  We will collect donations at local Hendrick dealerships until January 31st, 2015.
