Philadelphia Union did their part to help kick hunger on Wednesday morning, teaming up with The Tri-State Toyota Dealers, the Philadelphia Phillies, Flyers and 76ers in the Fourth Annual Toyota Tundra Food Drive to benefit Philabundance.
Members of the Union front office joined well-known sports figures and media personalities to unload over 20,000 pounds of non-perishable food items collected during a two-week-long food drive throughout the tri-state area. The Philly Phanatic, Hip Hop, Flyers Alumnus Bob “The Hound” Kelly, Phillies play-by-play announcers Tom McCarthy and Scott Franzke, the Union, Philabundance President Bill Clark and Tri-State Toyota Dealers Association President Paul Muller were all on hand to greet and unload the convoy of Toyota Tundra pick-up trucks.

This is the fourth consecutive year that the Tri-State Toyota Dealers and its partners collected food for Philabundance, the region’s largest hunger relief organization. In that time span over 30,000 pounds of food have been collected and donated to reduce hunger and food insecurity in the Delaware Valley.
