Montgomery, Ala. – July 21, 2014, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) Team Members showed their generosity and team spirit by donating more than 250 pounds of non-perishable food and collecting $13,344 for the Montgomery Area Food Bank.

“I am so thankful to all of the Team Members that participated in HMMA’s food drive for the Montgomery Area Food Bank,” said Craig Stapley, director of production – HMMA. “There are a lot of people out there that need our help, and I want to thank all of our Team Members for making that happen.”

Food bank barrels were placed throughout the automotive assembly plant to encourage participation. At the conclusion of the drive, the Montgomery Area Food Bank truck picked up the 250 pounds of food from HMMA. The food bank’s Executive Director, E. Parke Hinman, was also on hand to thank Team Members for their continued support.

“Each year, [HMMA] Team Members really come through for the hungry and needy in South Central Alabama,” explained Hinman. “For every $25 donation, the Food Bank can distribute up to 160 pounds of food. You guys are like clockwork. You just help us out every year with a lot of things. Your timing couldn’t be any better because we can really use the food and the money right now at the food bank. ”
