CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Performance Bicycle®, the No. 1 choice for people who love to ride, is holding a nationwide food drive from Thursday, Nov. 12 through Sunday, Nov. 22 to help fight hunger this Thanksgiving season. Canned and non-perishable food will be collected at all Performance Bicycle locations and donated to local food banks across the country. Performance Bicycle will then match the total weight of food collected at each of its locations and make a matching donation to the local food banks.
With over 100 stores nationwide, Performance Bicycle, in partnership with our customers, has the potential to make a significant contribution to fight hunger in America. With a pledge to match up to 20,000 pounds of donated food, the company is committed to serving local communities and stocking local food bank shelves. Every food donation helps to address the hunger experienced by 48 million Americans, including 15 million children*.
"Performance Bicycle is passionate about supporting our communities and fighting hunger," said Performance Bicycle CEO David Pruitt. "We want to help in any way we can and I encourage everyone to join us in this fight."
Customers who donate three or more items will receive a 10% discount off their in-store purchase, excluding bicycles.
