With only 200 volunteers and 10,000 packed meals in mind, Findlay Volkswagen partnered with Generosity Feeds and recently hosted a meal packaging event aimed to feed kids at Whitney Elementary School on Boulder Highway and Tropicana and other Clark County schools.
Spearheaded by Findlay Volkswagen Henderson General Manager Melisa Eichbauer, the event was attended by more than 500 Findlay Volkswagen employees and community members. Together they were able to pack a little more than 10,000 meals and were able to raise more than its goal of $10,000.
Sudden Impact Auto Body, the LV FC Lights, and MGM Resorts were some of the businesses that contributed to help raise money.
Marcy Colletti, marketing director for Findlay Volkswagen Henderson, happily mentioned that they knew how enormous the challenge was when it came to donations and volunteering, but they had total confidence in the community.
Whitney Elementary School Principal Sherrie Gahn was also delighted about Findlay Volkswagen Henderson’s support.
“I am truly humbled,” said Gahn. “It’s amazing and I cannot thank you enough. Thank you with all my heart.”
Findlay Volkswagen Henderson is part of Findlay Automotive Group.
