Performance Motors helps stock Elkins food pantry

June 9, 2012
The Inter-Mountain

For the second consecutive year, Performance Motors and The Inter-Mountain collected hundreds of pounds of food for Catholic Charities as part of the Taste of Home Cooking Show.

Generous attendees donated 566.5 pounds of non-perishable food items for Catholic Charities. Food was dropped off in Performance Motors' 1946 Chevy Truck, and then the items were taken to Catholic Charities.

"Performance Motors has a history of supporting local organizations in its service area, including Randolph, Tucker, Barbour, Preston and Pendleton counties," said Christy Hines, co-owner of Performance Motors. "Catholic Charities does a great job taking care of the less fortunate, and we're pleased to help their efforts. The Taste of Home Cooking Show was a wonderful event, and it showed how local businesses and community members can work together to support the entire region."
