Plymouth, MA (PressExposure) October 31, 2013 -- For the second year in a row, Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac has teamed up to fight hunger with the South Shore Community Action Council's Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse to host a canned food drive at the dealership's 137 Samoset Street (Route 44) location. The drive will take place during the month of November and all donated goods will go to the Greater Plymouth Food Warehouse, which provides food to more than 30 emergency food pantries and soup kitchens in the greater Plymouth area.
"We've always believed that being in business was about being part of the community. As part of the community, we feel it's important to help out those who might be going through a bit of a tough time," said Jeff Tracy, president of Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac. "We encourage everybody to stop by the dealership and make a contribution to the drive."
As an added incentive, Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac is taking $10 off an oil change for customers who come in with canned goods to donate. Customers simply need to present their canned goods when they check in for an oil change and the $10 will be deducted. Depending on the type of vehicle you drive, that can be a savings between 15 and 30 percent.
Containers for the food drive will be located throughout the Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac showroom. All canned goods and other non-perishables are welcomed and accepted.
"Last year's drive generated 385 pounds of food, which equates to 296 meals. We can't thank Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac enough for stepping up once again to host a food drive during this critical time of year," said Steve Bailey, of South Shore Community Action Council. "The winter months and the holidays always present challenges in getting food to the people who need it. We're hopeful that Tracy's customers and people in the area will get in the spirit of the Thanksgiving season and give generously to this drive."
That kind of generosity is nothing new for Tracy Chevrolet Cadillac. Since its founding in 1992, the dealership has been involved in a number of charitable endeavors. That includes supporting The Driven Student Recognition for students at Plymouth North and South High Schools, the Boys & Girls Clubs, and many more.
