Thank You #24

Thank you Jeff Gordon for an amazing run with Drive to End Hunger!

We know that ending hunger is about more than providing meals. It requires a deep understanding of the systemic issues that keep people from accessing adequate, healthy food. It has become more important than ever to find effective ways to improve food security.

That’s why five years ago, AARP Foundation initiated Drive to End Hunger, an unprecedented partnership with four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon and Hendrick Motorsports – the first-ever cause-driven NASCAR sponsorship. At the time, the effort was primarily focused on engaging the NASCAR fan base as well as corporations and charitable organizations that were active NASCAR supporters. This aspect of the initiative has been a tremendous success, with NASCAR fans and corporate partners donating more than 34 million meals, which have benefited thousands of charitable organizations across the country.

It’s been an amazing ride. Check out our photo gallery on Facebook
