Roadmaster Drivers School knows how important it is to give back to those in need. That’s why this holiday season, Roadmaster is helping local charities in a variety of ways.
Here are just a couple examples of how Roadmaster is doing its part to make Christmas 2014 a special time for some very deserving local organizations across the country:
On December 9, Kelly, Jennifer and Vanessa from our San Antonio, TX, school volunteered at the San Antonio Food Bank. The Roadmaster team worked in the garden, picking peppers and chilies to be dried and replanted. The San Antonio Food Bank — whose mission is to fight hunger in Southwest Texas through food distribution, programs, education and advocacy — provides food and grocery products to more than 500 partner agencies in 16 counties throughout the region. Last year, the San Antonio Food Bank provided nearly 50 million pounds of food.
And Roadmaster of San Antonio didn’t stop there. Kelly, Jennifer, Lisa and Mike went to Adopt A Family to volunteer their time wrapping gifts and calling families in need to let them know they will be receiving gifts for Christmas!
On December 12, Roadmaster Drivers School of Tampa donated time and the use of one of its trucks to help deliver food from an Aldi supermarket to a local food bank on behalf of St. Petersburg-based Kobie Marketing.
St. Petersburg (Roadmaster Headquarters)
Roadmaster Drivers School’s headquarters in St. Petersburg held a toy drive to benefit the local Sallie House, a Salvation Army organization dedicated to sheltering children who are victims of abuse, neglect or abandonment. Their goal, as their website puts it, is to provide “an atmosphere that is as normal as possible until arrangements for each child’s long-term care can be made.” Part of creating that feeling of normalcy for these children includes making sure they have gifts under their tree for Christmas, and Roadmaster is honored to have been able to help.
These are just a couple examples of how Roadmaster is trying to make a difference in people’s lives within our local communities across the country. But remember: there are tons of ways that you, too, can help your local charity organizations. From volunteering your time and energy to donating clothes or toys, every little bit helps. You don’t need a team of people, either. You yourself can make a positive impact in the lives of those who need it. So this week, give the gift of charity in whatever way you’re able to and help make your community a better place!
And from all of his here at Roadmaster Drivers School, have a merry Christmas!
