Klamath Falls Honda and Subaru Fill Cars, Stomachs with Food
Dealerships challenge community to load cars with food donations, benefiting Klamath-Lake Counties Food Bank
Klamath Falls Honda and Subaru have long been involved with community service, giving back to groups such as the Klamath Animal Shelter, Relay for Life, and more. The Subaru store recently earned a "Love Promise Community Commitment Award" from Subaru of America for their work with charitable causes in the Klamath Basin. In addition to the food drive, all the associates at Klamath Falls Honda and Subaru will volunteer at the food bank to help sort and organize the donations for Honda Week of Service, the second week of June, and the sales teams will be volunteering at Produce Day on June 15th through the Salvation Army, who partners with Klamath-Lake County Food Bank.
Kasey Bird, a teacher at Conger Elementary, has inspired students and teaching staff alike to get involved with this good cause. Students will be taking a field trip to the food bank on May 17th, which is Give Back Day in the school district. The hope is to show students how their contributions make an impact in their community.
"The teams at Klamath Falls Honda and Klamath Falls Subaru are excited to compete against each other this year for the benefit of our community," states Sales Manager Matt Meyer. "The students from Conger and Shasta Elementary have challenged our team and we are asking the community to join us in supporting the Klamath-Lake Counties Food Bank. We are looking forward to a little friendly competition this year."
Interested participants can bring food donations directly to either dealership or to Conger and Shasta Elementary schools throughout the month of May. With last year's donation totaling over 4,000 lbs of food, the dealerships hope to beat their record in 2018.
