Crew Carwash donates $22,000 to Gleaners Food Bank
Oct 26, 2015
Crew Carwash donated $22,000 and 3,000 pounds of canned goods to Gleaners Food Bank, following a one-day collection drive at 21 Central Indiana Crew locations.
On Saturday, October 10th, the community was encouraged to join the HUNGERCREW by providing a canned good or making a cash donation, in return for a free application of FastWax, a premium service Crew provides. This was the first partnership for Crew and Gleaners, and the first one-day event with multiple collections sites for Gleaners.
The donated canned goods translate to a wholesale dollar amount of more than $5000, and the combined proceeds of the day will enable Gleaners to supply 68,500 meals for our neighbors in need. Gleaners, through its network of 250 charitable hunger relief agencies, provides food assistance to more than 260,000 people throughout its 21-county service area in Central and Southeast Indiana.
“We thank our team and the community for joining the HUNGERCREW with such a generous demonstration of support for Gleaners,” said CEO Bill Dahm. “We were happy to make it convenient for our customers to donate and do our part in the fight against hunger.”
