Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Crown Automotive of Chattanooga, part of the Crown Automotive Group, today announced that it will sponsor a Feeding Children Everywhere Hunger Project to help Chattanooga area children in need. The event will be held at the Crown Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram showroom in Chattanooga on Saturday, December 14, when hundreds of volunteers will form assembly lines to package nutritious meals for hungry children in the local area. All volunteers are welcome and community members can register to participate or donate at: Crown Feeding Children Everywhere.
The Hunger Project will include two 90 minute packaging sessions beginning at 9:00 A.M. and 11:00 A.M. 140 volunteers are needed at each session to meet the goal of filling 50,000 food packages. Crown staff members will volunteer, working side-by-side with Crown customers and other giving members of the community. Feeding Children Everywhere workers will also be on hand to form the assembly lines and create excitement with music and entertainment.
The packaged meals are a healthy and delicious blend of easily digestible sources of protein, necessary carbohydrates, vitamins A, B6, C, D and E, folic acid, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, trace minerals and amino acids. The meals are scientifically formulated to help combat the effects of hunger on the human body. The addition of boiling water to the packages is all that is needed to cook the meals.
Don Campbell, CEO of Feeding Children Everywhere, commented, “Crown Automotive Group cares about the community, and is demonstrating this by supporting at least 50,000 meals for children in need in the Chattanooga area during the holiday season, when everyone should have a nutritious meal. We are grateful for their generous support and excited about the event on December 14.”
T.C. Staton, general manager of Crown Automotive of Chattanooga, also commented, "One in four children in our area is at risk of going hungry today. Crown will do everything we can to help alleviate this terrible problem. Feeding Children Everywhere is an outstanding organization with a goal that everyone can stand behind: feeding hungry children. In addition to being an incredibly worthy cause, participating in a food packing event is an emotionally uplifting experience. We expect a great turn out from our staff members, customers and the community."
Crown will also donate funds from each car sold between now and the event, in addition to customers' sales and service donations, and employee contributions. The packaged meals will be distributed to needy school children in Chattanooga just before Christmas. Community members can volunteer or donate to help feed hungry children at: Crown Feeding Children Everywhere.
