Community event sponsored by 11 Honda dealers across the state
Hartford, CT -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/10/2015 --The Connecticut Honda Dealers association announced it will sponsor its first ever food drive. Eleven Honda dealers across the state will take part in this event and collect food for those in need in Connecticut communities.
Nearly 500,000 children and their families throughout Connecticut are considered at risk for hunger every single day. The Connecticut Honda Dealers hope this event will encourage people to donate and help others.
"We are greatly looking forward to this food drive, and hope it makes a big difference in our communities," said Jonathan Larabee, Owner and General Manager of Manchester Honda. "With Thanksgiving and the holiday season approaching, what better time is there to be charitable and offer this kind of gift to those who truly need it?"
The Connecticut Honda Dealer Association is working alongside the Connecticut Food Bank and Foodshare to make this event happen. The food banks depend on donations from local businesses and individuals to keep food pantries stocked with healthy food for those in need.
