TACOMA, Wash. (Nov. 27, 2012) – LeMay – America’s Car Museum (ACM) announced today it will not hit the brakes on its “Drive Down Hunger” initiative this year. Instead, thanks to strong community participation and response, North America’s largest auto museum will continue to offer discounts to visitors who bring two or more non-perishable food items during December. All proceeds go to Northwest Harvest, one of Washington State’s leading food bank distributors.

“Public response has been tremendous, so we’re extending the campaign through the end of the year,” said David Madeira, ACM president and CEO. “The need for assistance in Tacoma is high, so please join us, spread the word and encourage your friends and family to Drive Down Hunger by bringing food to America’s Car Museum.”

People can drop off non-perishable food items in ACM’s lobby between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily. Participants who donate two or more items will receive $2 off ACM admission, and kids (12 and under) with two or more canned goods will get in free.
