ST. LOUIS — Jim Butler Auto Group is holding its “Good Taste Campaign” fundraiser and food drive to help Missouri families in need.
On Saturday, volunteers from Jim Butler Auto Group brought food donations for Operation Food Search to pick up.
“Our employees and our customers are all here giving donations and trying to fill up every bin. We’re trying to do 2,500 to 3,000 pounds of food,” said Brad Sowers, President and CEO of Jim Butler Auto Group.
The Good Taste Campaign is looking to raise $100,000 to help feed children and families.
“Here in Missouri, you have over 800,000 families that have food insecurity,” said Sowers. “And this is important, and most of them, let’s really be honest, they’re all kids, right? So these kids need food,”
$50 from every car sold in November and December will be donated to combat food insecurity in the state.
Thousands of pounds of food have already been collected. So if you’re in the market for a new car, consider getting one at Jim Butler Auto Group, and you can help a family in need.
Operation Food Search provides food to almost 200 partner agencies across the community.
They feed over 200,000 people every month.
They also give out food and other necessities worth more than $31 million each year to 330 community partners in 27 counties in Missouri and Illinois.
Food drives are happening through December 20th at every Jim Butler Auto Group location.
