JM Family Associates Fight Hunger through Annual Fundraiser and Food Drive

Associates of diversified automotive company JM Family Enterprises, Inc., recently raised $63,702 to fight hunger across North America. The fundraiser was part of the company’s fifth annual Fall Fill-Up campaign, which collects monetary and nonperishable food donations for non-profit organizations in the communities where JM Family has major business operations. Donations collected at the company’s corporate headquarters in Deerfield Beach and at JM Lexus in Margate surpassed $30,000 and benefitted Feeding South Florida, the leading domestic hunger relief organization in the region.

“For many, South Florida is a great place to live, but for the one in six residents who face hunger every day, the reality is much different,” said Colin Brown, JM Family President and CEO. “Together we can help these organizations provide nutritious meals to families unable to meet their daily food needs, and promote self-sufficiency for adults trying to break the cycle of poverty and hunger.”

JM Family associates from several business locations participated in a variety of fun and engaging activities throughout the three-week campaign to raise awareness about hunger, including pie-in-the-face contests, chili cook-offs, raffles and JM Family Food, a twist on the popular American game show Family Feud. In addition to the financial contributions, 3,000 pounds of nonperishable food items were also collected. The 2013 Fall Fill-Up came to a successful close with a food sorting volunteer activity at Feeding South Florida’s warehouse in Pembroke Park.
