Food Bank May Get Desperately Needed New Cars
COLUMBIA - The employees of the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri say the two cars used to feed hungry families across 32 counties are old and unsafe. They both have more than 120,000 miles on them.
The cars have had engine problems and other issues like missing hubcaps and detached rearview mirrors. To make matters worse, seven employees share the two cars.
However, a solution may be in the future. The Food Bank is named a finalist in Toyota's 2012 100 Cars For Good program. The program provides the chance for 100 nonprofit organizations across the country to win a free car. One organization wins every day for 100 days.
Voting for the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri can only take place on June 24 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Voting takes place on Toyota's 100 Cars For Good Facebook.
