Last month, the Fred Beans Automotive Group launched a 500,000 Meals
Challenge, pledging to donate at least $25,000 a month through the end
of the year to fight hunger in the communities where it operates. The
company estimated this monthly donation would provide about 400,000
meals by the end of the year and challenged employees, customers and
business partners to help provide an additional 100,000 meals, or more,
by Jan. 1. With one month of the “Challenge” completed, Fred Beans
estimates that it has helped provide just over 51,000 meals.
Throughout the Fred Beans 500,000 Meals Challenge, the company will
dedicate a portion of vehicle sales and service bills to help five
nonprofits – one in each of the main regions where Fred Beans operates.
Customers also have the chance to make their own contributions by
rounding up at the registers of Beans dealerships, CARSTAR collision
centers, CarQuest locations and AutoRent sites. All funds raised for the
Fred Beans 500,000 Meals Challenge in Bucks County locations benefit
the Bucks County Opportunity Council (BCOC).
