The 2nd Annual Stuckey Automotive Food Bank
Stuckey Automotive announces the return of the 2nd 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 (formerly Dean Patterson Automotive), Altoona Honda, and Five Star Mitsubishi have once again 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 9th. 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.
Collectively, the five dealerships accumulated 13,793 non-perishable food items that helped feed over 500 local families last holiday season.
“It’s been a blast to witness this campaign take on a life of its own. From the time each of dealership emphatically accepted the challenge, we all knew it was going to be something special. And it was. Now that we know what to expect from Courtesy, Blaise Alexander, Altoona Honda, and Greg’s team at Five Star, our team is fixated on garnering a tremendous amount of food for this year’s Challenge. They’ll do it, too!” commented Matt Stuckey, president of Stuckey Automotive.
Jean Johnson, Sales Manager at Blaise Alexander of Altoona, added, “It’s the nature of our business to compete for market share. We’re known to kick our competing nature up a notch when it comes to helping our neighbors. Knowing our team like I do I can say with certainty they are bound and determined to win this Challenge and brighten the holidays for hundreds of families!”
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.
