Apostolakis Auto Group Donates Over $4K to Local Food Banks

CORTLAND, Ohio – Apostolakis Honda and Shenango Honda recently presented checks totaling $4,700 to two local food banks.

Apostolakis Honda presented a $2,900 check to Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley, and Shenango Honda presented a $1,800 check to Mercer County Food Bank.

The funds were raised during a monthlong campaign in December in which a $50 donation for every car sold from the dealerships was designated for the foods banks. Customers got to choose which food bank would get their designated donation.

In addition to the monetary donations, the dealerships held a food drive at each location and collected 100 pounds of food at Apostolakis Honda and 119 pounds of food at Shenango Honda.

“I strongly believe in giving back to those in need in our communities,” said John G. Apostolakis, Apostolakis Auto Group president. “Our neighbors should not go without the basic necessity of food, and I’m grateful our dealerships could help the local food banks with a monetary and nonperishable food donation. We’re so thankful to have these important food banks in the Mahoning and Shenango valleys.
