Amarillo, Texas (PRWEB) July 21, 2012
Street Toyota Scion of Amarillo, Texas is helping Snack Pak 4 Kids this summer by collecting jars of Peanut Butter and boxes of Pop Tarts.
“We will be collecting 18 ounce jars or smaller of Peanut Butter and boxes of Pop Tarts to help alleviate hunger this school season,” Joe Street, Street Toyota Scion Owner said. “Everyone here is already excited about collecting the supplies to help out children who are beginning school soon.”
In addition to the Peanut Butter and Pop Tarts Street Toyota Scion is also collecting donations and will use the money to buy food to donate to Snack Pak 4 Kids. Street Toyota Scion will collect these items now through August 15 and then donate all of the supplies to Snack Pak 4 Kids.
“A lot of our employees are going to be volunteering at Snack Pak 4 Kids in August and help organize the items so that they are ready for the first weekend of classes,” Street said. “Although we are excited about this fundraiser, the most important thing about this project is that we are helping kids this school season.”
Snack Pak 4 Kids is an organization that is based in Amarillo that helps many kids in the Amarillo School District and surrounding areas that are living in food insecure homes. Snack Pak 4 Kids sends snacks to kids on the weekend because the kids might not have a lot to eat.
“We are really excited about this new project,” Alyssa Duncan, Marketing Coordinator said. “Anytime we are given the opportunity to help the community we run with the idea and do our best to help in any way we can. I plan to volunteer in August too.”
