Kars4Kids donated over 12,000 energy drinks to Philabundance, the Delaware Valley's largest hunger relief organization, dropping them off on Tuesday September 11th. Nine pallets of the 20-ounce bottles were delivered to the Delaware Valley based organization, which serves close to 500 food pantries, shelters and emergency kitchens in nine counties in Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey.
Philabundance feeds 65,000 people every week, 23% of whom are children. As a primarily educational charity, Kars4Kids understands the importance of a full stomach to a good education. Kars 4 Kids spokesman Steven Weldler said yesterday "It's so exciting for us to be involved in some small way with the incredible work being done by the amazing people behind Philabundance. At Kars4Kids we believe that an under prepared child will be an uneducated child and nutritious meals are the most important preparation children and their families can have".
Last week Kars4Kids donated a similar amount to The Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, and this donation concludes this round of energy drink deliveries.
Kars 4 Kids (http://www.kars4kids.org) is a national car donation program that turns old cars into educational dollars. They are based in Lakewood New Jersey.
