Over the years, EDCAR has raised thousands of dollars for the Food Bank of El Dorado County.
“This is our largest fund raising event each year, raising several thousand dollars,” said Steve Cockerell, branch manager of Vitek Mortgage. “In 2000 we began partnering with the Food Bank who has always provided our supplies for our contests and to create the Can Tree at the Belltower since that time.”
In 2011 EDCAR raised $5,000 for the Food Bank of El Dorado County, which provides nutritious foods that supplement El Dorado County’s at risk seniors, families and children in communities from El Dorado Hills to South Lake Tahoe.
“Many people are struggling in our current economic times, including Realtors and their affiliates” said Mike Sproull, founder of the Food Bank of El Dorado County. “Even in these tough times the Realtors keep their commitment to El Dorado County’s most at risk population. For more than 25 years they have made a difference and I’m proud of this relationship that guarantees a safety net for our neighbors in need.”
The Food Bank was founded in 2000 and is the largest collaborative charity in El Dorado County. For more information visit foodbankedc.org or call 530-621-9950.
