Local Dealerships Reunite to Support St. Vincent de Paul’s “Food for Families” Soup Kitchen.

DUNCANSVILLE, PA (October 10, 2023) – Stuckey Automotive announces the return of the 3rd Annual Stuckey Automotive Food Bank Challenge benefitting the St. Vincent de Paul’s Food for Families Soup Kitchen in Altoona.  The teams of Courtesy Motors, Blaise Alexander of Altoona, Five Star Mitsubishi, and Zeigler Chevrolet have accepted the Stuckey Automotive Food Bank Challenge to collect the most non-perishable for families facing hunger this holiday season.  The Challenge, which is now underway, will conclude on Friday, December 8th.  Representatives from each dealership will gather at the Food for Families Soup Kitchen in Altoona on Tuesday, December 12th, to count the donated food items and proclaim the winning team.

In 2022, the participating dealerships accumulated 12,833 non-perishable food items that helped feed over 500 local families last holiday season.  Since its inception, the dealerships collected a total of 26,176 non-perishable food items.

“It’s been a hot minute since we first asked our competitors to join us in a little friendly competition.  It’s just remarkable to think of how many lives have been positively impacted by this Challenge of ours.  To this day, we have only love for Courtesy Motors, Blaise Alexander, Greg’s (Sloan) team at Five Star Mitsubishi, and the folks at Zeigler Chevrolet.  Now that said, I feel inclined to let them know that Team Stuckey is setting their sights super high this year.  And knowing Team Stuckey the way I do, especially when given a challenge, they’ll pull it off!” noted Matt Stuckey, president of Stuckey Automotive.

Zeigler Chevrolet is the newest dealership to accept the Food Bank Challenge.  Keith Zeigler, Sales Manager at Zeigler Chevrolet, commented, “It means a lot to be in the company of dealerships who also believe the importance of putting the needs of others first.  We’re going to have a lot of fun with this and even though we’re new kids of the block, we have a strategy in place that’s sure to give the other dealerships a run for their money!”

Jake Schmidt, General Manager at Blaise Alexander of Altoona, added, “Last year, we were finalizing details to open our Blaise Alexander store in Altoona, so we were a little late to the party.  Now, there’s no holding us back.  It’s game on!  We’re looking forward to seeing the other dealerships in December, that’s for sure!”

Throughout the Challenge, non-perishable donations can be dropped off to a dealership of choice.  Donations can also be made to the St. Vincent de Paul’s Food for Families Soup Kitchen at 2201 Union Avenue in Altoona during select hours.
