DEL GRANDE DEALER GROUP TO HOST SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK “FILL THE BARRELS” HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE

SAN JOSE, Calif. (October 26, 2016) – The Second Harvest Food Bank “Fill the Barrels” Food Drive returns to Del Grande Dealer Group’s (DGDG.com) Capitol Hyundai and Capitol Volkswagen in an effort to feed those less fortunate during the holiday season. From Tuesday, November 1 through Friday, November 18, the community is encouraged to open their hearts and pantries to make sure no local resident has to go without food this holiday season.

“Although there is immense wealth in Silicon Valley, there is also a high cost of living which continues to fuel the hunger and malnutrition that remains prevalent from Daly City to Gilroy,” said Del Grande Dealer Group President Shaun Del Grande. “The DGDG family, more than 1,000 team members, is dedicated to giving back to the communities where we live and work. We will do all we can this holiday season to fill the barrels with much needed food for those less fortunate.”

Donating food is easy. Throughout the month of November, residents are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to the Second Harvest Food Bank donation barrels located at Capitol Hyundai at 1050 Capitol Expressway Auto Mall and Capitol Volkswagen at 911 Capitol Expressway Auto Mall, in San Jose. Most-needed items include: meals in a can (soup, stew, chili), tuna, peanut butter, canned fruit, canned vegetables, whole grain cereals and granola bars. All donated food will be distributed to those in need through the Second Harvest network of more than 320 non-profit partners at more than 850 food distribution sites.

Support for Second Harvest Food Bank is just one of the many ways Del Grande Dealer Group employees give back to the community through DGDG — Del Grande Does Good, the charitable arm of the Del Grande family and their family of dealerships. Through relationships and partnerships with charitable organizations, like Second Harvest, employees participate to help those in need year round.
