Bridgestone Retail Operations recently presented the Meals On Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) with a $471,000 check as a result of its in-store campaign to raise money to help fight senior hunger. In total, the company helped raise more than $500,000 for Meals On Wheels 2010.

“We are proud of our teammates across the country who played a key part in helping to combat senior hunger by raising awareness of this issue,” says Matt Hoskins, division president.

“Many of our teammates even became MOWAA volunteers and delivered meals to seniors in their communities,” he points out.

Company-owned stores nationwide, including Firestone Complete Auto Care, ExpertTire, Tires Plus and Wheel Works, asked customers to make a donation of $1 or more to MOWAA’s cause. Each charitable gift will be used to educate the public on the issue of senior hunger, fund research and provide grants for related programs across the nation.

“Our vision is to end senior hunger in America by the year 2020. With the support of a wonderful partner,” says MOWAA President and CEO Enid Borden, “we will make our vision a reality and drive away senior hunger.” V

Bridgestone’s partnership with Meals On Wheels began in late 2009 and is focused on increasing awareness and funding, and providing volunteers for the programs nationwide.

In addition, all of the company-owned stores help MOWAA staff and volunteers care for their cars. Since nearly all of the volunteers use their personal vehicles when delivering the meals, keeping their cars properly maintained helps to ensure that the food reaches its destination.
