Corporate Initiatives

Every dealership and employee finds their own way to show how Hendrick Cares, but Hendrick Automotive Group is united in our fight against hunger. What started in 2001 as a local Thanksgiving food drive has grown into a company-wide mission to feed our neighbors in need. Over the past twenty years, our teammates across the country have built partnerships with local food banks, volunteered their time and donated more than 5 million pounds of food.

To address the challenges and immense community needs the COVID-19 pandemic presented in 2020, our support shifted to a virtual fundraising initiative called the Hendrick Hunger Heroes Drive. Every dollar our teammates donate to the drive is matched by Hendrick Automotive Group, and together we've donated $1 million to our food bank partners when they need it the most. 

Our Initiatives
Hendrick Automotive Group dealerships are out in the community making a difference year-round. Take a look at some of our partnerships and dealership-lead efforts.
