Action Gator Tire Jumps Into Action During Hunger Action Month
Have you ever tried to work, watch the kids, or just go about your daily routine without stopping to eat and noticed how much more difficult being hungry makes everything? Can you imagine feeling like this on a daily basis?
Nobody deserves to go hungry.
While the United States is one of the richest and most developed countries in the world, 37 million Americans struggle with hunger each year. This is especially true in central Florida, where 1 in 6 people in our community is considered food insecure.
To aid in the fight against hunger issues in our home, Action Gator Tire is joining up with Second Harvest Food Bank to participate in Hunger Action Month.
What is Hunger Action Month?
September is recognized as Hunger Action Month, which was originally established by an organization called Feeding America to gather volunteers, raise funds, and increase awareness to help provide relief to the 14.3 million households that suffer from food insecurity in our country.
A household that is considered “food insecure” is a household that lacks the ability to provide sufficient food for every person to live a healthy and active life.
Hunger Action Month is a month where people all over America stand together with Feeding America and the nationwide network of food banks to fight hunger. It’s a month to spread the word and take action on the hunger crisis, and dedicate ourselves to a solution!
How can I help take action against hunger?
One of the easiest ways to contribute to Hunger Action Month is to get an oil change from Action Gator Tire any time from 9/1 – 9/30!
During the entire month of September, we are donating 15% of the proceeds from every standard oil change directly to Second Harvest Food Bank.
In addition to getting your oil changed with us, you can also volunteer your time or money to organizations like Second Harvest. To help spread the word you can post on social media using the hashtag #HungerActionMonth.
