2008 Fill The Rig at Meyer's Auto Tech

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash-- KNDU Family Food Drive is only two days away. One local company is already collecting food for us.

The owners at Meyer's Auto Tech in Kennewick are collecting food in a unique way. Scott and Jessica Meyer are filling a truck bed full of food. On Saturday they will deliver it to KNDU's parking lot. This is something they've been doing for years.

There's not a better way for an auto company to donate food, then by filling up the back of a big rig..

"We got involved kind of out of a desire to find some way to help people this time of year," said Scott Meyer.

Meyer has been involved with a ministry at the Benton County Jail for two years and says many of us forget the families in need in the Tri-Cities.

"So many of us, we have it so nice and this community is almost, I don't want to say completely immune, cause there's a lot of people struggling with the economic times, but we still do pretty darn well here. You know we tend to forget that there's a lot of people that don't," said Meyer.

With the country's economy now in a recession more families are needing extra help this holiday season.
