(November 13, 2018) El Paso, TX-- Local dealership Doggett Freightliner and several other corporations combined resources to donate four new 2019 trucks to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank. These trucks increase the capacity to deliver nutritious food throughout El Paso, Culberson and Hudspeth Counties. This donation included two Freightliner M2 refrigerated box trucks and two Freightliner Cascadia 125 tractor units, including a day cab and a sleeper unit.
“The reality is that hunger does not discriminate, and there are thousands of children, parents, veterans and senior citizens in the El Paso region who do not have an adequate source of food,” said Paul Burk, vice president of Doggett Freightliner. “We are honored to have the opportunity to help make a positive impact in the El Paso area and support the only food bank in the city. It’s gratifying to know that, through our relationships with Freightliner, Daimler Truck Financial and Daimler Trucks North America, we can donate equipment that will not only catalyze the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank’s productivity but also combat hunger and reach our community’s most vulnerable populations.”
This generous gift strengthens the Food Bank’s fleet of dependable vehicles that can travel to surrounding counties to pick up produce, and transport thousands of pounds of non-perishable food items, paper goods, personal hygiene products among cleaning supplies. With the addition of the donated trucks, there are a total of 11 rigs operating in the borderland region.
“Our mission is to find solutions to fight the hunger crisis in the El Paso region by working with companies and local partners who support our efforts to combat the hunger crisis in our community,” said Susan Goodell, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank CEO. “We are beyond humbled by the major equipment donations from Doggett Freightliner and its partners, The Burkitt Foundation and an anonymous donor for this generous contribution to our organization. It is because of these like-minded corporations that we are one step closer to putting an end to hunger.”
