Findlay dealers continue supporting Three Square food bank
With the current pandemic and high unemployment, Three Square Food Bank has pledged more community support for those who are food insecure.
Their slogan is “Together, We Can Feed Everyone” the fact that they prepared over 41 million meals in 2019 makes you believe they really can.
Three Square’s has a large campus located near I-15 and Craig Rd. They also accept donations at four other locations around the valley. Since opening in 2007, Three Square has provided over 385 million pounds of food to hundreds of thousands of people in need and earned a reputation as one of the most efficient and effective food banks in the country. With just one dollar they can generate 3 meals.
Findlay Automotive dealerships have continued to Three Square throughout this tumultuous year. Back in May near the start of the pandemic they contributed $11,500. Now, two dealerships –Findlay Toyota and Findlay Kia – teamed up to donate an additional $7,500 this month.
Findlay Automotive Group CFO Tyler Corder praised Three Square for its dedication to providing meals not only to families but also public school students.
“Some students are food-insecure,” Corder said. “That means that they don’t know where their next meal is coming from. We’re proud to support Three Square in its mission to ensure that no one in our community goes hungry.”
Over the years, Three Square has received solid support from Findlay Automotive Group since 2013, providing well over 100,000 meals to the community.
Three Square is registered 501(c) (3) non-profit and Southern Nevada’s only food bank.
According to Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square, food drives have become regular events at many Findlay dealerships.
“We are grateful to Findlay Automotive for their generous donations,” said Burton. “Nearly 440,000 residents– or one in five — are now food-insecure as a result ofthe COVID-19 pandemic. They [Findlay] have been valuable partners, and their support has helped thousands of hungry people in our community. On behalf of our hungry neighbors, we would like to thank them for their commitment.”
