In support of Hunger Action Month, Fast Park, an offsite airport parking company with 17 facilities in 13 markets, collected 10,083 pounds of food and donated more than $10,000 to local food banks last month. This is the seventh year in a row Fast Park has participated in Hunger Action Month facilitated by Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.
Collections took place at Fast Park facilities in Albuquerque, Austin, Baltimore, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Houston, Indianapolis, Memphis, Milwaukee, Orlando, Raleigh and Tucson. All donations (in every market except Miami) benefit a food bank within the Feeding America network. The facility in Miami gave its items to the Salvation Army Miami. As in years past, Fast Park donated one dollar for every pound of food collected.
“Supporting our local communities is an important piece of Fast Park’s mission,” said Melanie Chavez, Executive Vice President of Construction and Branding at Fast Park. “We are always impressed by how much our customers and employees give to our annual food drive and this year was no exception. In seven years, we have donated more than 38,000 pounds of food and donated more than $37,000 to food banks across the United States. What an amazing accomplishment that we attribute to our generous employees and customers.”
