Jared Marks Swaps Driving Shoes for Work Boots for Favorite CharityPress Release
This weekend Jared will be contributing his time and efforts off the track helping others in the greater Detroit Metro area by promoting healthier lifestyles, health education, wellness and the need for nutrition. Jared will be assisting the nation’s largest food rescue operation Forgotten Harvest with its Harvest Days as part of the organizations mission to relieve hunger in the area. Harvest Days are held over several weeks throughout the summer harvest season. Volunteers are expected to pick over 300,000 pounds of fresh-from-the-farm produce at the Four Forgotten Harvest Farm locations this year. The produce generally reaches the tables of those in need the very next day.
Marks commenting, “I’m ready to get out on the Forgotten Harvest Farm and fill up the trucks to feed the people that are in need in the Detroit metropolitan area. The new school year is getting underway and as a student myself I know how important nutrition is in getting families off to a good start for their day. I have been blessed by a good family and have not had to do without food and I can’t imagine what the families would fall back on if it was not for the Forgotten Harvest program. I don’t care if I get stuck in mud up to my knees and have to pull weeds-this is for a great cause and is very important to our community.”
This weekend’s Harvest Day pick will be on August 17th from 9:00AM to 1:00 PM at the Ray Township Farm located on 17000 29 Mi. Rd., Ray Township, MI 48096. Jared is encouraging race fans in the Detroit Metropolitan area to get their work clothes on and sign up to volunteer for a great day of fun on a Forgotten Harvest Farm.
On Saturday, August 18th Jared and the TMR No. 12 Dodge Charger will be appearing in support of Walgreens Way to Well Health Tour at Walgreens Store #4501 located at 22380 Moross Rd. in Detroit, MI from 10:00AM to 4:00PM with a second stop on Monday, August 20th at Walgreens Store #4797 located on 6331 E.
