88,000 MEALS SUPPLIED BY GIE ATTENDEES AND KAWASAKI
Rural Lifestyle Dealer reports:

Attendees at this year's GIE+EXPO helped provide nearly 88,000 meals to people in need across America. Kawasaki's Engines Division teamed with Feeding America, the country's largest hunger relief organization, to raise funds supporting the organization's 200-plus local food banks. Each participating attendee got the chance to stop at various stations within the Kawasaki exhibit, learn something new about Kawasaki, and be rewarded with a hat and the knowledge that Kawasaki would then add to its Feeding America donation. Kawasaki also matched any cash donations given by tradeshow attendees. More than 1,200 of the Louisville tradeshow visitors took advantage of the opportunity to help those in need.
