Freeman Motor Co. lends a hand

Photo Credit: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Employees of Freeman Motor Co. recently participated in Table for Two, a benefit to raise funds for food for Africa New Life Ministries and Oregon Food Bank.

Freeman Motor Co. recently held a food-packing event in support of Africa New Life Ministries.

For the past six years, owners Eric and Jenny Freeman of Dunthorpe have been involved with ANLM, helping the nonprofit buy a truck through the Road to Kagayo campaign and sponsoring a child through the organization. This is the second year the company has been involved with the food-packing event.

The event is intended to raise money that is used to buy food, package it and ship it to Rwanda for distribution by ANLM. This year, Oregon Food Bank also received food, so the project was named Table for Two.

“We are involved with different organizations in the community and look for ways to assist them in whatever their individual organization’s goals are,” said Penelope Fain of Freeman Motor Co. “Because we have bigger hearts than we do wallets, we look for ways to serve these organizations that make an impact, save them money, help them to achieve their goals, but don’t cost us more than we have to give.”

For example, FMC employees provided valet service for the annual fundraiser of the Children’s Center, which raises funds for projects supporting abused children and their families.

They will host a car wash fundraiser benefitting the Lake Oswego School District Foundation in spring 2015.

Freeman Motors is located at 7524 SW Macadam Ave. in Portland.
