A Salina business on Friday made a large donation toward the local effort to feed the hungry. Money Automotive Center donated $9,000 to the Salina Emergency Aid Food bank.
According to the business, with the help of their customers, they strive to give back to the community with donations to local charities throughout the year. As part of Subaru’s Share the Love Event, Money Automotive Center and its customers and we were able to collect $9,000.
Kathleen Jackson from the Salina Emergency Aid Food Bank accepted two checks from Subaru and Money Automotive Friday morning.
The food bank is operated totally on monetary and food donations from the community. The organization does more than provide food. The organization strives to prevent homelessness by helping with the emergency funds needed when disaster strikes, and a family cannot cover the rent and/or utilities. Another goal is keeping families nourished with the food they need and teaching them how to stretch their food dollar by providing education through our cooking program.
