MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com)- More than 100 AutoZone employees volunteered their time to help stock the Mid-South Food Bank in Southeast Memphis.
Volunteers helped to put food on the shelves of the AutoZone Agency Market Saturday.
Made like an AutoZone retail store, the store’s objective is to hold food so that families can go through and “shop” for what they need.
After everything was moved, volunteers stayed to help pack food boxes.
“We have a culture of giving back we have roots of investing in this community,” said David McKinney, AutoZone’s Vice President of Government Community Relations. “We’ve made some recent investments, and we want to continue that spirit of giving and pouring into the community that we love.”
Organizers with the Mid-South Food Bank say it’s important that during this move, the organization has minimal disruption to its partner food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other agencies they serve.
The food bank and AutoZone have been working together since 1979.
