Richmond, VA – AARP Foundation President Jo Ann Jenkins released this statement following Jeff Gordon’s second place finish at Richmond International Raceway.
"Congratulations to Jeff Gordon, driver of the No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet, for securing a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Jeff’s momentum has been a fantastic boost for Drive to End Hunger and our efforts to combat hunger among the nearly 9 million older adults who struggle to put food on the table. We’re excited to have Chase Card Services join us on the Drive to End Hunger car for the second year in a row; and make a donation every time someone uses the AARP® Visa Card® from Chase. We wish Jeff the best of luck at Chicagoland, and we look forward to seeing him back in the Drive to End Hunger colors at Dover."
