Last year we had the opportunity to go to the Panama City/Mexico Beach areas to assist in post-hurricane Michael relief. The impact and level of devastation were overwhelming. The bright light however was seeing a wiped-out community full of folks coming together to help one another rebuild and survive the aftermath of natural disaster. We experienced firsthand the powerful energy of people helping people.
We wanted to pay this forward and continue the efforts of helping people to make meaningful impact. We decided to make it our mission to partner with Feeding America and join the fight against hunger right here at home. For the next 8 months, we will be traveling across America, stopping in at shows and spreading awareness of our Rollin’ Against Hunger mission as we look to raise $50,000 to support the children, adults and families who face hunger every day in every community across the country.
Hunger is a real issue in America and it's one we as a society have ample means to end. FeedingAmerica.org serves 200 food banks and 60,000 pantries and meal programs. Their outreach touches an astonishing 1 in 7 Americans. It's a great organization who does good things. We're proud to raise awareness and donations for the cause this season.
Our Rollin' Against Hunger Tour will be stopping in at these events across America. Come by and see us or donate here and together we can help one another and stop hunger today!
