Just before Thanksgiving last year, Nickerson Community Center in Olneyville found out that their turkey donations had fallen through. With only a few days left before the holiday, NCC was scrambling to put together turkey dinners for their community.
When we heard about this, we just had to help. Our Honda Seekonk team rallied up two vans full of groceries, including 30 turkeys and other assorted items. We were happy to be involved in what became a true community effort, reaching businesses and anonymous donors all over RI and MA! As a result, NCC was able to provide turkey dinners to the Olneyville community and make the holidays a little better for the families in that area.
Food pantries need help year round, especially as winter marches on. If we all come together to help our local nonprofits, we can fulfill their needs as a community. We were proud to see our team come together, and we encourage all our customers and Honda fans to do the same.
Every little bit counts…lend a helping hand today!
