The holidays are a season of giving, and a local company has just done so in a big way.

The Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation recently donated $7,000 to Golden Harvest Food Bank in order to address food insecurity in the food bank’s Georgia and South Carolina regions.

The donation is part of a program called Fill Your Tank that celebrates Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s 60th anniversary by providing $60 million over six years to fight hunger around the globe.

In presenting the donation, Tyson Bragg of Enterprise said, “Enterprise Rent-A-Car is woven into the fabric of the CSRA and food insecurity is an issue for our community. This donation to Golden Harvest Food Bank will support those in our community who need a little help to reach to their full potential.”

Beyond donations, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is supporting  a local engagement and hunger awareness campaign. Hunger is often invisible and the campaign helps make hunger in our communities more visible.Globally, one in nine people don’t get enough food to be healthy and lead an active life, according to the World Food Programme.

“This is an exciting gift from Enterprise.” Travis McNeal, Executive Director of Golden Harvest Food Bank, said, “We’re able to turn this $7,000 gift into over 23,000 meals to feed the hungry right here in our service area. People will be truly impacted by this generosity from Enterprise.”
