AARP FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES NEW DESIGN OF 2013
NO. 24 DRIVE TO END HUNGER CHEVROLET
“…NASCAR drivers [will] see the Drive to End Hunger fork a lot next year.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, AARP Foundation announced the release of the design of the 2013 No. 24 Drive to End Hunger Chevrolet SS, driven by four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon. The new design still uses candy red as the base color, and now incorporates more black into the paint scheme. The biggest changes are to the front bumper and sides of the car, where the Drive to End Hunger ‘fork’ is used as a design element. The new design can be viewed at www.DriveToEndHunger.org.
“We were already excited about next season, but now we just can’t wait until Daytona. Drive to End Hunger has a great driver in a great ride, moving towards a great cause,” said AARP Foundation President Jo Ann Jenkins.
“We hope the addition of Drive to End Hunger’s signature fork logo on top of the No. 24 Chevrolet SS will provide another visible reminder about the plight of 9 million older Americans who struggle to put food on the table, as well as the steps we can all take to help. The logo is also visible from behind, so Jeff will make sure that other NASCAR drivers see the Drive to End Hunger fork a lot next year.”
Since AARP and AARP Foundation launched Drive to End Hunger, the initiative has donated more than 14.6 million meals and driven corporate and individual donor commitments with an expected value of more than $17.3 million.
