As a member of the Pulaski County community, Lowe Chevrolet gives back to local causes. For the 2017–2018 school year, we have pledged to help local schools feed hungry students who don’t have access to healthy meals at home.
For starters, we donated $100 for every vehicle sold between October 12th and October 31st in 2017. That amounted to a grand total of $5,100.
Beyond that, we are advocating for five local schools’ “food in a backpack” program. Some examples of these programs include the “Snack in a Pack” program at Waynesville, the “Backpack Blessings” program at Laquey, and the “Blessings in a Backpack” program at Richland. Each of these programs aims to send healthy food home with students over weekends or holiday breaks—particularly students who don’t have access to nutritious meals outside of school.
If you are wanting to donate food, these programs typically look for the following types of food: instant oatmeal, ravioli, mac ‘n’ cheese, cereal, ramen noodles, chicken noodle soup, peanut butter crackers, fruit and veggie cups, granola bars, and much more. They also accept check and cash donations.
