Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation Donates $50,000November 16, 2016
Harvest Hope Food Bank has received $50,000 from the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation to address food insecurity in South Carolina. The donation is part of a program – called Fill Your Tank – that celebrates Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s 60th anniversary by providing $60 million over six years to fight hunger around the globe. The Fill Your Tank program donations made locally are determined by local Enterprise operations.
Beyond donations, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is supporting the Fill Your Tank program with a hunger awareness and local engagement campaign. Hunger is often invisible and the campaign helps make hunger in our communities more visible.
In presenting the donation, Dave Solano, Vice President and General Manager for Enterprise in South Carolina said, “Enterprise Rent-A-Car is woven into the fabric of the South Carolina communities and food insecurity is an issue for our community. This donation to Harvest Hope Food Bank will support those in our community who need a little help to reach to their full potential.”
Globally, one in nine people don’t get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life, according to the World Food Programme. Today, more than a third of households served by Feeding America include at least one child. And, according to Food Banks Canada, 13 percent of Canadians live in a state of food insecurity, which means they do not have reliable access to adequate amounts of safe, good-quality, nutritious food.
Denise Holland, CEO of Harvest Hope, said, “We are extremely grateful for such a generous donation. These funds will go a long way in helping us feed the one in four children in South Carolina who struggle with hunger. Without wonderful partners such as Enterprise, we simply couldn’t do all that we do.”
