Lakeland, FL (PRWEB) September 10, 2015
Hunger is a persistent problem in Central Florida, and McGee Auto Service & Tires has recently stepped up to do their part and help. McGee Auto Service and Tires recently purchased a custom-built refrigeration truck for donation to the Agape Food Bank and its charitable efforts. On September 10, Agape will be thanking their donors at a public open house event to be held in Lakeland, FL.
As a locally-owned-and-operated tire and auto repair chain with 30 locations around central Florida, McGee Auto Service & Tires has a stake in the community, and shares Agape’s concern about hunger in the region. The Florida Association of Food Banks estimates that over 100,000 residents of Polk County alone are food insecure, with limited or uncertain access to food. They are proud to be able to help with Agape’s efforts, and their truck will be used for the organization’s Mobile Pantry program. Mobile Pantries are held three times per month, with volunteers helping to distribute 8-10,000 pounds of food per event.
McGee Auto Service & Tires encourages area residents to make food donations for Agape’s food bank program. The most-needed items include canned meats, soups, fresh fruit and veggies, cereal, pasta, rice, beans, shelf-stable milk and peanut butter. Agape prefers items that are easy for children to open, and no glass containers.
McGee Auto Service & Tires is a trusted resource for drivers across Central Florida, with premium-brand tires at affordable prices and a full menu of auto repair services performed by ASE-certified technicians.
