-- Capital Eurocars' GoFundMe campaign to raise funds to feed the people who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic is getting closer to its goal. The automotive group is attempting to raise $20,000 to be donated in its entirety to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Big Bend – a non-profit organization that collects, stores and distributes donated food to more than 550 feeding partners in the area. Capital Eurocars kicked off the campaign with a donation of $7,500.
Second Harvest of Big Bend partners with 135 agencies in 11 Florida counties to provide over 785,000 meals monthly for the hungry. The organization has had a lasting impact on the Tallahassee community, and Capital Eurocars has planned a fundraiser to help further their efforts.
"The Tallahassee community is a generous community and we are fortunate to join forces to help so many that have been affected by the Covid 19 Pandemic. We're about halfway there, with just over $11,000 raised so far and we are very grateful," said General Manager Crawford Atkins. "We're so close to reaching our goal, and we hope you'll help us get there. Every donation counts and it will stay in our community, helping our neighbors."
The driving force behind the campaign is support for the neighbors, families and community members who are facing hardship due to job losses, decreased income and food supply shortages. Capital Eurocars selected the Second Harvest Food Bank due to its capability of providing a high level of support to the community during this crisis.
"Thousands of people can't feed themselves or their families now. We all have a responsibility to help those less fortunate than us," said Jim Myers, President of Crown Automotive Group, the parent company of Capital Eurocars.About Capital Eurocars and the Crown Automotive Group –
