Gwatney Chevrolet and the Arkansas Foodbank have teamed up to fight hunger in Arkansas this holiday season. Gwatney Chevrolet has created an amazing incentive to donate non-perishable food items. When purchasing a new Chevy, Gwatney will knock $100 off the price of the vehicle per non-perishable food item you bring in, up to 10 items or $1,000. This is an incredible deal if you are looking to purchase a new Chevrolet car, truck or SUV. In addition to this, Gwatney has pledged to match each non-perishable item you bring in 2-for-1. So if 1,000 items are donated, Gwatney will throw in 2,000 extra!
This is event runs through the end of this month, so you only have a little more than a week to take advantage of this wonderful offer!
Where: Gwatney Chevrolet
When: Through November
