CULLMANPentastar South Car Club hosted their 8th Annual Mopars on the Streets Car Show on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at Cullman Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dealership. The show was a fundraiser and all money raised will benefit Secret Meals for Hungry Children. There were close to one hundred vintage cars on display, twenty-five more cars than last year.  The weather was great, and lots of people came out and enjoyed the beautiful cars while helping to make sure that no child in Cullman County goes hungry.

“Today we are having a car show for one of our favorite charities, Secret Meals for Hungry Kids,” said Brenda Allison of Pentastar South Car Club.

“We are collecting money this year to pack backpacks for hungry kids. It breaks my heart to know that a child is going home hungry, so that is why this is so dear to my heart.”

Alabama Credit Union created the Secret Meals for Hungry Children program in 2008 with one goal in mind, to decrease the number of children who face hunger over the weekend.

Currently, there are approximately 2,500 students receiving Secret Meals food packs across Alabama.

All money donated to the credit union is used to purchase food for the cause. 

“Every dime donated through Alabama Credit Union goes to buy food,” said Laurie Legg, Branch Supervisor at Alabama Credit Union in Cullman.

 

“We are so glad to have these guys do this car show two years in a row now. All their proceeds go to Secret Meals for Hungry Children. We’ve been serving kids in Cullman County and Cullman City for six years now.”

“We would like for people to know that there are children out there that do need the service,” explained June Landrum of Alabama Credit Union.

“It’s just a very good cause and we appreciate any help we can get.” 

The Pentastar South Car Club’s car show benefitted many hungry children. For more information about the Pentastar South Car Club, follow them on Facebook at facebook.com/groups/616255698449046.
