With the recent opening of Bintelli Powersports in West Ashley comes a new opportunity, one which owner Justin Jackrel is using to give back to the local community. While teaching a marketing class at RB Stall High school in 2017, Jackrel learned just how many local students live their lives in hunger.
Once Jackrel completed the purchase for Bintelli Powersports’ new location, his attention shifted to ways he could give back. “I knew that something had to be done to help our local community combat hunger,” says Bintelli President, Justin Jackrel. “It was devastating for me to hear my students tell me that they don’t get fed when they aren’t in school. There’s no excuse for that! Our team reached out to the Lowcountry Food Bank and we are thrilled to be working alongside them to fight hunger. With every vehicle we sell – every golf cart, scooter, ATV, dirt bike, ATV, motorcycle, moped, low speed vehicle, go kart – we will donate a month’s worth of meals to the Lowcountry Food Bank for a local child or adult in need. This will remain in place for as long as this dealership has its lights on, because it’s the right thing to do.”
Bintelli Powersports hopes to donate more than 50,000 meals over the next year with the Lowcountry Food Bank, and they also accept donations from customers that can be made at the retail store location: 2137 Savannah Highway Charleston, SC 29414. The Lowcountry Food Bank has been in operation for 35 years and has distributed 28.1 million pounds of food to the ten coastal counties of SC. With 1 out of 5 children being food insecure, Bintelli Powersports hopes to bring more food to those in need.
