Indianapolis, IN-based Crew Carwash donated $22,000 and 3,000 pounds of canned goods to Gleaners Food Bank in mid-October, following a one-day collection drive at 21 central Indiana Crew locations.
On Saturday, October 10, the community was encouraged to join the “Hungercrew” by providing a canned good or making a cash donation in return for a free application of FastWax, a premium service Crew provides. This was the first partnership for Crew and Gleaners, and the first one-day event with multiple collection sites for Gleaners.
The donated canned goods translate to a wholesale value of more than $5,000, and the combined proceeds of the day will enable Gleaners to supply 68,500 meals for Crew neighbors in need. Gleaners, through its network of 250 charitable hunger relief agencies, provides food assistance to more than 260,000 people throughout its 21-county service area in central and southeast Indiana.
