Drop Your Food Bank Donations at Shannon Motors

November 1st, 2015 by

Rhode Island Community Food BankAll of us at Shannon Motors are pleased to announce that each of our locations is serving as a drop spot for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank. At Shannon Motors, we’re always looking for ways to help the community, and we think this is the perfect opportunity to give back.

Donate Food Today

As we move towards the holiday season, it sometimes becomes easy to forget about those who are in need. That’s why we’ve made it possible to drop off non-perishable items for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank at all of our locations.

We’ll be collecting non-perishable food items until the week of Thanksgiving. The food bank is in desperate need of food, but is particularly in need of:

  • Tuna
  • Canned and dried beans
  • Brown rice
  • Canned soups and stews
  • Peanut butter
  • Breakfast cereals
  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Canned fruits and vegetables

If you can be of assistance, please bring items down to any of our three sales locations, the admin office, or the service department.

The Rhode Island Community Food Bank

Since 1982, the Rhode Island Community Food Bank has been working tirelessly to provide all Rhode Islanders with access to nutritious food and a healthy lifestyle. They work to improve the lives of over 60,000 people who visit their food pantry every month, and your assistance is more appreciated than ever during the holiday season.

We’re proud to help them work towards the promotion of their core values:

  • Dignity: Treating others with respect, fairness, and understanding.
  • Accountability: Serving the community in a responsible manner.
  • Responsiveness: Ensuring food and assistance for those who are most in need.
  • Collaboration: Encouraging teamwork, cooperation and community partnerships, just like the one they have with Shannon Motors.

If you don’t have any food to offer, you can always go to their website to donate directly.
