[2]What do Jeff Gordon [3]James “JB” Brown [4], me and you have in common? We can all end senior hunger, together.

In case you haven’t heard, there’s a pretty big NASCAR race [5] coming up. While we all love the pomp and circumstance around All-Star week culminating with the Coca-Cola 600 on May 26, there’s a week in between where Drive to End Hunger is set to box one million meals  [6] for older North Carolina residents. And we can’t do it without you!

How can you help?  Volunteer in Charlotte to box food May 24 & 25 at the Charlotte Convention Center. RSVP here [7]. Needed shifts are:

  • Thursday, May 24:  9:30 – 11:30 am, 11 am – 1 pm, 1 – 3 pm
  • Friday, May 25: 9 – 11 am

To boot, Hendrick Motorsports is hosting a Fan Fest and is looking for some great folks to box meals at the Hendrick Campus. If you’re lucky you’ll get to box side-by-side from the crews of the No. 24 Drive to End Hunger crew and other Hendrick teams. You do need to RSVP here [8].

This is a great opportunity to help your community and help feed older adults struggling with hunger. What do you say? I’ll be there. Will you?
