INDIANAPOLIS – APRIL 17, 2020 – The Central Indiana Region of the Porsche Club of America (CIR-PCA) board of directors voted to donate $1000.00 to each of five foodbanks in the central Indiana area.

 The club has a long history of giving; with well over $100,000 committed to philanthropic causes in just the last ten years. The CIR-PCA board met this week, in an emergency session to discuss the current crisis for the needy in our State. Indiana is facing record unemployment.

 Club president, Rob Fike said, “As we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times, things are constantly changing as you know. While some of us are only mildly affected by the epidemic, many of our Hoosier brothers and sisters, are horribly affected. Either by contracting the virus itself, or by the financial devastation it is producing by the lockdown and job loss. People that never, ever, expected to have problems feeding their families, now find themselves in dire straits.”

 “By our donations, we feel that this just again reinforces the fact that our Porsche family is made up of the best people anywhere! We will get through this together. Remember, it’s not just the cars, it’s the people,” said Fike.

 The recipients of this first round of food-bank donations will be:

  • Indianapolis- Gleeners Food Bank
  • Lafayette- Food Finders Food Bank
  • Muncie- Second Harvest Food Bank
  • Fort Wayne- Community Harvest Food Bank
  • Bloomington- Hoosier Hills Food Bank

 The CIR-PCA board will continue to assess the needs of our communities as we work through the virus pandemic issues.
