With the majority of food donations occurring in the winter holiday months, many food banks are short on contributions over the summer. Plus, kids on summer vacation are without school lunches to rely on, making summer the perfect time to chip in and help those in need. With all this in mind, the SoCal Helpful Honda Dealers wanted to do their part to end hunger in Southern California during a time when many food banks need help the most.

On July 19th and July 26th, the Helpful Team donated a total of 1600 bags of non-perishable food items to the KABC Feed SoCal events in Costa Mesa, Culver City, Thousand Oaks and Ontario. Many people recognized the Guys in Blue and were grateful for their charitable efforts:

“Wow [the] Helpful Honda Guys brought all this food, that’s wonderful.”

“I remember you guys from the Stuff-a-Bus event; Honda is always so generous.”

“Hey it’s the Honda Helpful Team, great to see you, love the commercials and love the fact you are real people!”

In addition to donating food, the teams helped out by accepting donations, organizing the non-perishable goods, and most importantly, lending their time to the cause.

Helping at the KABC Feed SoCal event is just one way we’re spreading the helpfulness this summer. And you know what else is helpful in the summer? An ice cream truck with free frozen treats! Our first-ever Helpful Honda ice cream truck is rolling through SoCal every weekend through August 11th.
