FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAN JOSE, Calif. (October 31, 2018) – The Second Harvest Food Bank “Fill the Barrels” Food Drive returns to Del Grande Dealer Group (DGDG.com) in an effort to feed those less fortunate during the holiday season. From Thursday, November 1 through Monday, November 19, the community is encouraged to open their hearts and pantries to make sure no local resident goes without food this holiday season. Drop off barrels will be located at Capitol Volkswagen, in San Jose.
“Although there is immense wealth in Silicon Valley, there is also a high cost of living which continues to fuel the hunger and malnutrition that remains prevalent from Daly City to Gilroy,” said Del Grande Dealer Group CEO Shaun Del Grande. “The DGDG family, more than 1,200 team members, is dedicated to giving back to the communities where we live and work. For the fifth year, we will do all we can this holiday season to fill the barrels with healthy food for those less fortunate.”
Donating food is easy. Throughout the month of November, residents are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to the Second Harvest Food Bank donation barrels located at Capitol Volkswagen, 911 Capitol Expressway Auto Mall, in San Jose. Most-needed items include: meals in a can (soup, stew, chili), tuna, peanut butter, canned fruit, canned vegetables, whole grain cereals and granola bars. All donated food will be distributed to those in need through the Second Harvest network of more than 309 non-profit partners at more than 985 food distribution sites.
Support for Second Harvest Food Bank is just one of the numerous ways Del Grande Dealer Group employees give back to the community through DGDG — Del Grande Does Good, the charitable arm of the Del Grande Dealer Group family of dealerships and the Del Grande family. Through relationships and partnerships with charitable organizations, like Second Harvest, employees participate to help those in need year-round.
