For the second time in 2021 and the 10th consecutive Fall, the staff at Hoffman Car Wash will be collecting non-perishable food items to support local area food pantries. On Saturday, October 23rd, and Sunday, October 24th, Hoffman Car Wash will provide a free Ultimate car wash with a food donation.
“Both our staff and customers look forward to the Food Drive every year,” said Hoffman Car Wash CEO Tom Hoffman Jr. “Each year we collect thousands of pounds of items, and our hope is this fall’s food collection will be more successful than ever before.”
Hoffman Car Wash has partnered with 14 different food pantries to provide much-needed assistance for families and individuals in need. Each Hoffman location will donate the collected items to a food pantry in its neighborhood.
This year’s pantries include
- The Anchor Food Pantry (East Greenbush)
- Bethlehem Food Pantry (Delmar)
- Captain Community Human Services (Clifton Park)
- Columbia Opportunities (Hudson)
- The Food Pantries of the Capital District (Colonie)
- Franklin Community Center (Ballston Spa)

- Hope 7 Food Pantry (Troy)
- Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless (Albany)
- Loaves and Fish Food Pantry (Binghamton)
- Northeast Regional Food Bank (Latham)
- People’s Place (Kingston)
- South Glens Falls Moreau Community Center (Queensbury)
- The Wilton Food Pantry (Saratoga).
Suggestions of non-perishable food items to donate include canned meat or fish, canned entrees (stew, ravioli, etc.), canned fruit in juice, canned spaghetti sauce, canned soup, hot or cold cereal, canned 100% juice, and peanut butter and jelly.
To participate, individuals simply need to donate one non-perishable food item at any Exterior or Full Service location. Individuals wishing to participate can find a complete list of locations by clicking here.
The event is part of Hoffman Car Wash’s “Practice Kindness” initiative to spread positivity and goodwill in the communities it serves. Within the last year, Hoffman Car Wash has supported Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless (IPH), Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), American Red Cross, Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), and First Responders and Hospital Personnel.
Later in 2021, Hoffman Car Wash will continue its Veteran’s Day tradition, which includes a free car wash for active and retired military members and/or a $9.99 Hoffman Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change.
Hoffman Car Wash also supports many non-profits and youth organizations through its Helping Hands Fundraising program.
