Jared Campbell, who volunteers with the Langley Food Bank, picked up donated food from Holeshot Motorsports. The company donated 369 meals for the needy, exceeding its goal of 300 meals.

Foodbank efforts exceeded goal

Holeshot motorsports donated 369 meals during month of October

For a first time fundraiser, Holeshot Motorsports is ecstatic with the results, so much so they plan to make their Service for the Needy food bank fundraiser an annual event.

Given the staff at Holeshot felt they had plenty to be thankful for in the month of October, they decided to donate a meal to the Langley FoodBbank for every motorcycle or ATV that had service work done.

“We were able to donate 369 meals which exceeded our goal of 300 meals,” said Alan Dekleer, sales and marketing representative for Holeshot.

“We owe it to the efforts of the motorcycle community, who rallied behind our cause. Also, to the British Columbia Motorcycle Drill team who helped with a substantial donation.”

A lot of non-perishable food was also donated and has gone to the food bank, he said.
