Throughout the month of August and September, the SoCal Honda Dealers were out Helping the Helpful all across Southern California! We sent our Helpful Honda Guys in Blue to visit over 90 fire stations, local community organizations and volunteer groups in an effort to give back to those who are also being helpful in their own communities. So what did we do? Well, we delivered complimentary lunches to hundreds of hardworking people. Why? Because, it’s our job to be helpful … just like it is theirs.

To show our appreciation to those who continually give back to the community, we surprised these groups, with sandwiches, salads, drinks, and desserts! A firefighter in Oxnard was grateful for the free lunch surprise: “It’s a big misconception that we eat on the tax payers dime. We actually buy all of our food, so this lunch is greatly appreciated.” At the Salvation Army in Bell, the volunteers were thankful not only for the food, but to be able to share it among their hardworking peers: “This is something we won’t ever forget. We rarely get to be in the same room together for more than five minutes.”

So what’s next? Helpful Hondaween is just around the corner, which means we’ll be back at local pumpkin patches to help celebrate Hondaween by giving away FREE pumpkins and glow-in-the-dark trick-or-treat pails! We’ll also bring the Hondaween cheer to local children’s hospitals across Southern California and spend time with the kids. We’ll have arts and crafts, pumpkin decorating, and more spook-tacular fun!
