Feed the Frontline - April 2020

Keith Hawthorne Automotive is continuing its support of Local Public Safety Organizations and Healthcare workers. Please help to support this program feed the frontline and all of those that are working so hard during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our First Responders, Nurses, Doctors, and all healthcare workers are on the frontline fighting for the health of our community in Mecklenburg County every day. Let's offer one less thing for them to think about…a meal made with love.

Food will be purchased from local restaurants who also need our help during this unprecedented event.  Thank you for feeding our frontline in Mecklenburg County; this includes all hospitals who are seeing COVID 19 patients, all fire departments, police, sheriff, and Mecklenburg EMS Agency (Medic).

This initiative is organized in partnership with Great Balls of Fire Foundation, a non-profit organization that also hosts the annual Charlotte Salute to Heroes hockey game.  Our goal is 200 meals a day for the next 60 days!
