COLUMBIA, SC – The Jim Hudson Automotive Group will provide one million meals to hungry South Carolinians by donating $200,000 to Harvest Hope Food Bank. The charitable donation is a result of a very successful 8th Annual Jim Hudson 2000 Sales Event. During the Hudson 2000 Sales Event, all six Jim Hudson locations were tasked to sell 2,000 vehicles in two months.
“Each Jim Hudson Sales Event becomes more successful than the last,” says Jim Hudson, Founder and CEO of Jim Hudson Automotive Group. “I am honored to know that our determination and teamwork led us to this incredible donation. One in five South Carolinians struggle with hunger, and our employees are honored to take part in this event to make an impact. We only look forward to raising the bar next year.”
Representatives from Harvest Hope Food Bank and the Jim Hudson Automotive Group gathered today to hold a press conference in honor of this generous donation.
“We are so grateful to the Jim Hudson Automotive Group for this amazing donation,” says Wendy Broderick, Harvest Hope CEO. “They are one of our most generous supporters, and we are truly thankful for them. Jim Hudson understands the importance of the community he serves and cares about the less fortunate living in South Carolina.”
To date, Jim Hudson Automotive Group has donated over 7 million meals to Harvest Hope Food Bank as part of their local philanthropy efforts.
