“MINI Takes the States” Road Rally Stops at Tropical Pines
Every two years, owners of British economy car MINI come together to motor across the United States on an epic fundraising rally they call “MINI Takes the States”. From May 4 to July 30, 2016 they made their motoring matter by raising money for Feeding America, a partner of Three Square Food Bank. In addition to the minimum $10,000 MINI USA donation, every dollar raised by MINI owners helps provide 11 meals to families in need. As one of their final stops on this year’s 4,397 mile journey, they visited Three Square Food Bank and then came out to Tropical Pines to interview residents who benefit from Three Square’s Senior Share supplemental food delivery program.
