BMW of Southpoint Wraps up 2018 Spring Meal Drive #HendrickCares

The team works hard to assemble and pack boxes


This week we wrapped up the Hendrick Cares 2018 Spring Meal Drive where our employees purchased meals to feed 250 families for Easter.  We discussed in our previous blog, BMW Cares by Providing Easter Meals to Local Families, about how this initiative was created by Hendrick Cares and allows the employees to purchase non-perishable items to be paired with a ham and pie from Hendrick Automotive Group.  


We are in the midst of a move to our new location and everyone is preparing for the changes with the move, but that did not stifle the generosity of our employees. Many employees brought in more than one Hendrick Cares bag which means they fed more than one family.  


One really amazing thing that happened was a friendly spark of competition between Brand Ambassador Kim Smith and Finance Manager Jon Hilliard to see who could purchase the most food bags.  Both of these generous gentlemen were winners, but Jon Hilliard came out providing 27 families with meals. WOW!


When Jon was asked What Hendrick Cares meant to him, he gave this response:

Hendrick Cares is another reason I am proud to be a part of the Hendrick organization

as they’re championing the push to end hunger.  I’m just thankful

to be able to help out to make sure people who aren’t as fortunate can have a

happy Easter.


Facilities and Client Care members took their lunch breaks to feed others with the creation of an  assembly line to assemble boxes, count food, package boxes, and stack them. In just over an hour the boxes were ready for pick up by  InterFaith Food Shuttle.    


We are so proud to be a part of Team Hendrick and all of the charitable initiatives which allow us to put our giving spirit forward to help others.  We look forward to the 2018 Fall Meal Drive!
