AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - As a result of their 8th Annual Jim Hudson 2000 Sales Event, Jim Hudson Automotive Group donated $50,000 to Golden Harvest Food Bank.
Every year for the past eight years, the automotive group has donated to Golden Harvest and this year’s donation of $50,000 is their largest yet. It’ll provide 165,000 meals to people in need.
“Each Jim Hudson Sales Event becomes more successful than the last. I am honored to know that our teamwork led us to this incredible donation. Raising the funds needed to feed one in six local citizens who struggle with hunger is an achievement every Jim Hudson employee can be proud of. We only look forward to a bigger impact next year,” says CEO and founder Jim Hudson.
Hudson says no one should ever go hungry. “We care about you, other people care about you, even when you’re down in the worst of times. We are a Christian organization and I think that God put me here this earth for something other than selling automobiles.”
“We are thankful for the Jim Hudson Automotive Group. They are an important partner in our mission. Jim Hudson is a man who truly understands the importance of the community he serves and who cares about the less fortunate,” said Travis McNeal, Executive Director of Golden Harvest Food Bank.
While McNeal is thankful for the generous donation by Jim Hudson Automotive Group, he encourages others to give. “Everyone can make a difference. People that give $25 a month or give $25 a year. You may not be able to give us this $50,000 but every dime of it makes such an impact and such a difference in the lives of this community and children and senior adults and families.”
Golden Harvest Food Bank works to fight hunger in thirty counties across Georgia and South Carolina and every donation matters. They need your help to make sure no one goes hungry.
