New Car Dealers Donate Delivery Van to Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas
NADA SHOWS ITS SUPPORT OF THE LAS VEGAS COMMUNITY, WHICH HAS HOSTED THE NADA CONVENTION AND EXPO 15 TIMES SINCE 1965
LAS VEGAS (March 29, 2016) - The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) donated a new delivery van valued at $52,000 to Three Square Food Bank.
“We are deeply grateful to be the recipients of a brand new delivery van,” said Brian Burton, president and CEO of Three Square Food Bank. “NADA's donation will truly make an impact on our mission to reach more children who struggle with hunger in Southern Nevada. Their great partnership and generosity will touch the lives of many, and we cannot thank them enough for their support of Three Square.”
The donation will have a direct impact on Three Square's childhood nutrition delivery route, which includes Kids Cafe and the BackPack for Kids programs, Burton added.
“This donation supports the NADA Convention and Expo's longtime host city of Las Vegas through Three Square's mission to provide wholesome nutritious food to more than 305,000 people who are at risk of hunger in Southern Nevada,” said 2015 NADA Chairman Bill Fox, a multifranchise new-car dealer in upstate New York.
Three Square will also utilize the delivery van for its summer food service program, Meet Up and Eat Up. In addition, the updated fleet technology and design will increase fuel efficiency and decrease driver strain due to its smaller size.
More than 25,000 new-car and -truck dealers and their managers, as well as dealers from over 30 countries, auto industry executives and exhibitor staff attended the 2016 NADA Convention & Expo in Las Vegas.
Founded in 1917, NADA will celebrate its 100-year anniversary during the 2017 NADA Convention & Expo in New Orleans, which will run from Jan. 26-29.
