The donation is part of a Christian Brothers Thanksgiving promotion focused on giving thanks. Fans are encouraged to share what they are most thankful for on the company’s Facebook page. Each week, one fan’s entry will be shared as the Christian Brothers “Thanks of the Week.”
“Christian Brothers Automotive is devoted to helping others, and we couldn’t think of a better organization to partner with than Feeding America,” said Mark Carr, founder and CEO of Christian Brothers Automotive. “With this partnership, we are able to provide 80,000 meals to those who may have otherwise gone hungry this Thanksgiving. While we celebrate with our families and friends this holiday season, it is important that we reflect on how blessed we are as an organization and give back to those who need it the most.”
Feeding America is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. Its mission is to feed America's hungry through a nationwide network of member food banks and engage the country in the fight to end hunger.
