Over 2,600 volunteers helped pack an amazing 776,952 meals for Haiti at Luther Automotive Group's "Drive to Serve" event on February 24th and 25th in Plymouth, Minnesota, exceeding the goal of 750,000 meals.
Volunteers for this two day pack included Luther employees, Kids Against Hunger staff, civic groups, and community members. The event was organized by Luther Automotive Group.
"We reached our 750,000 meal goal about 7:00 Saturday night! It was an exhausting but amazing weekend of hard work, lots of laughter and the joy of accomplishing something good together! Thanks to everyone who helped!" Barbara Hilbert, CFO Luther Automotive Group.
The partnership between Kids Against Hunger and Luther will help to feed many Haitian children. This is the second year the two organizations have worked together.
The event also raised over $30,000 in contributions for the Emergency Foodshelf Network to support local food needs and the Veteran's Airlift Command in Minnesota.
