Jeff Gordon Drives to End Hunger

[Through his support of Drive to End Hunger, Jeff Gordon has helped raise awareness of the plight of nearly 9 million older Americans at risk of hunger – and with that increased awareness comes more donations of food and funds to help solve the hunger problem.

Taking a “see for yourself” stance to help communicate the reality of hunger among older Americans, the Drive to End Hunger at-track display provides an opportunity for NASCAR fans to learn about these important facts and make a difference by donating to the cause. Through hunger-related games and trivia, fans gain a better understanding of how their donations can impact the social problem Drive to End Hunger was set up to solve.

At the May 27 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Charlotte, some of these generous fans shared their personal motivations for donating to Drive to End Hunger. For Angela Dolan, the cause touched close to home. “As a child, I was raised by my grandparents. I witnessed firsthand how often they struggled to put food on the table and pay their bills.”]
