This event now includes a Cars & Coffee! Please view the updated story here.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner! It’s a time when we express our gratitude for the food and friendship that we all enjoy, among much more. Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a crisis, and has put many families in a tough financial spot, thus resulting in an even greater need for food donations during the holidays. However, we know the generosity of our BMW Car Club of America members can make a big difference!
Please join us for our next food drive at the BMW CCA National Headquarters on Saturday, November 21, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Let’s help fill the shelves of the United Ministries’ food pantry and help our neighbors in the Greenville and Spartanburg area.
Everyone who makes a donation will be given a raffle ticket for a chance to win two (2) Track Meet seats (a value of $499 each) from the BMW Performance Center. The Track Meet offering is a half-day program that begins with lunch at 12 noon, with driving events until 4 p.m., and then a reception afterwards. Additional prizes will be awarded including GENESIS exhibit-themed apparel from the BMW CCA Foundation! You don’t have to be present to win. Just make sure to write your name, phone number, and email address on your raffle ticket stub.
Everyone who makes a donation to the food pantry at the event will receive coupons for $5 off at the BMW CCA onsite merchandise tent, 20% off Le Mans Karting, and $5 off BMW CCA Foundation Museum admission.
Our goal is to collect 1,000 pounds of goods for United Ministries Food Pantry.
Here are some examples of needed goods:
- Canned meats (beef stew, tuna, chili)
- Canned fruit and veggies (green beans, peas, corn)
- Dry goods like pasta, cereal, beans, peanut butter, powdered milk
- Others: rice, noodles, mac & cheese
Of course, monetary donations are always welcome! For more info, please visit United-Ministries.org.
We will be observing social distancing guidelines from the CDC, so we are requesting that all participants drive through the line and drop-off to our volunteers.
We look forward to seeing you at the BMW CCA Headquarters, located at 2350 Highway 101 South in Greer, South Carolina, on Saturday, November 21, from 9 a.m. to 12:00 noon!
