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

Regardless of your motivation for going to see the new sure-to-be blockbuster Twilight: Breaking Dawn, you can make a difference in some hungry Arkansans lives. Rave Motion Pictures is holding a food donation drive while the throngs of eager fans await the midnight release Breaking Dawn. The food drive will be held from 7-9 p.m on November 17th. Here are some guidelines from ArkansasFoodbank.org on what to bring if you plan on donating:
TOP TEN ITEMS NEEDED:

All donations should be non-perishable, and nothing should be in glass containers. Unfortunately the Health Department does not allow us to accept homemade items.
Here’s a quick way to support Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry, who donate plenty of food to the Arkansas Foodbank each year. With every purchase of this cool car flag that says “Head’n to the Deer Woods”, you not only look stylish as you cruise to your hunting spot, but you also help fight hunger in Arkansas. For every purchase of a flag, $5 will go to Arkansas Hunters Feeding the Hungry, who donate the fruits of their hunts to the hungry in Arkansas.
If you’re a big hunter or know someone who is, be sure to purchase your flag today!
DJs from some of your favorite Crain Media radio stations will be holding a radio food drive next week, collecting donations for the Arkansas Foodbank. Tune in to Mix 106.3, KHITS 96.5, My Country Y107.1 or Big Rock 93.3 to find out how and when to donate, as well as keep up with how well the drive is going. They’ll be collecting canned goods as well as cash donations. I hear they’ll have a big-rig at their remote location to haul away their donations. Let’s help them fill it up!
If you were thinking of giving, this is a great time—before the season of giving carries us away. There will be more information available Monday. Until then, keep listening, and follow your favorite station on Facebook, Twitter, and their official sites:
