DUBLIN, Ohio, June 10, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Crown Automotive Dublin's GoFundMe campaign, to raise funds to feed the people who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, is getting closer to its goal. The automotive group is attempting to raise $25,000 to be donated in its entirety to the Mid-Ohio Food Collective. Crown kicked off the campaign with a donation of $10,000.
"We're almost at $20,000 and we couldn't be happier. It never ceases to amaze me how generous our community is; more so in times of trouble like now. Together our community is strengthened and Crown is firmly committed to its well being," said Marc Wigler, President and General Manager of the Crown Dublin Group.
The driving force behind the campaign is support for the neighbors, families and community members who are facing hardship due to job losses, decreased income and food supply shortages. Crown selected the Mid-Ohio Food Collective due to its capability of providing a high level of support through its 680 feeding partners.
"Thousands of people can't feed themselves or their families now. Most likely, you've seen the long lines at distribution points or you've seen images of bare shelves at area food banks. We all have a responsibility to help those less fortunate than us. This is an historic moment our nation is facing and together we can make a difference," said Jim Myers, President of the Crown Automotive Group.
"It doesn't matter if all you can donate is pocket change. Every amount is a welcomed amount. And it's so simple to donate. Just go to our GoFundMe to help your fellow neighbors in their time of need," added Neal Linkhorn, New Car Sales Manager of Crown Chrysler Jeep Dodge.
