REXBURG — Rexburg Motorsports is looking to give back to local families in need with its annual Stuff the Side-by-Side Food Drive.
The event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 1, outside the Rexburg Broulim’s.
To help support the Eastern Idaho Community Action Partnership (EICAP) Rexburg Outreach Office, Rexburg Motorsports is looking for donations of new or unopened food and household items to stuff a side-by-side with a half-ton of food.
The Rexburg Outreach Office is seeking donations for the following unexpired items: canned meats, canned tomatoes, cereals, dry goods, laundry and dishwasher detergent, cleaning supplies, and various hygiene items.
The side-by-side is equipped to hold up to 1,000 pounds of donations in the seats, bed, and storage compartments. Rexburg Motorsports is hoping to meet and exceed donations from last year, having filled the UTV two times over.
To donate, simply stop by the Broulim’s in Rexburg and place your donations in the side-by-side parked outside the store. All items received will be housed in the food bank in Rexburg and be distributed to families in need in the Madison County area.
“We’re always looking for ways to help out the community,” said Mike Vickers, owner of Rexburg Motorsports. The food drive is a fun way for us to accomplish that and to encourage others to get involved.”
