Silvercar serves with a "community heart."
That's what the president of Services of Hope, Daniel Prescott, said when Silvercar by Audi, the brand's premium rental car company, donated the use of fleet cars to the Texas nonprofit.
The free rentals helped the organization make food deliveries and feed more than 500 people daily from the end of May through the beginning of July.
"That's a lot of people that would not have been able to get these USDA food boxes had Silvercar not made those cars available," Prescott told Automotive News.
The initiative to donate the use of Silvercars during the pandemic came from Audi employees who knew of people who worked at charities that were in need of transportation.
The fleet cars were sitting unused in lots across the country as the rental business slowed. Audi took that as an opportunity to help during the fight against COVID-19.
