ST. LOUIS – The Jim Butler Auto Group is holding its Good Taste Campaign fundraiser and food drive to help Missouri families in need.
On Saturday, volunteers from the Jim Butler Auto Group delivered donated food to be picked up by Operation Food Search.
“Our employees and our customers are all here, giving donations and trying to fill every bin. We’re trying to create 2,500 to 3,000 pounds of groceries,” said Brad Sowers, President and CEO of The Jim Butler Auto Group.
The Good Taste Campaign aims to raise $100,000 to feed children and families.
“Here in Missouri, there are over 800,000 families that are food insecure,” Sowers said. “And that’s important. Most of them, let’s be really honest, they’re all kids, aren’t they? So these kids need food.”
$50 from every car sold in November and December will be donated to help fight food insecurity in the state. Thousands of pounds of food have already been collected. So if you’re looking for a new car, you might consider buying one from Jim Butler Auto Group to help a family in need.
Operation Food Search provides food to nearly 200 partner agencies across the community. They feed over 200,000 people every month.
They also distribute more than $31 million worth of food and supplies each year to 330 community partners in 27 counties in Missouri and Illinois.
Food drives will be held at every Jim Butler Auto Group location through December 20th.
