Beck Motors Donates Vehicle To Feeding South Dakota
PIERRE, S.D. – Beck Motor Company in Pierre donated a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox to Feeding South Dakota on Tuesday. Feeding South Dakota says this donation will help them eliminate prior expenses used for rental vehicles, and will also expand their ability to more consistently reach all areas of central South Dakota.
Beck Motor Company presented the vehicle at their location at Pierre at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning. Beck Motor Company has partnered with Feeding South Dakota the past three years to provide Thanksgiving meals to families in need.
“Beck Motor Company is grateful for the continued support we have received from the residents of central South Dakota and we see this as an opportunity to give back to our extended community. We feel fortunate to be able to make this donation of a Chevrolet Equinox to Feeding South Dakota and know it will be put to good use,” said Trace Beck, Beck Motor Company.
A vital part of Feeding South Dakota’s mission includes more than 20,000 miles of travel annually in and around Pierre and central South Dakota as well as western South Dakota. Several of their programs, the Mobile Food Pantry, Commodity Programs, and Food Banking, rely on this traveling.
These programs are all used, in conjunction with nearly 100 feeding programs, to provide more that 1.3 million meals in hunger relief to food insecure families.
