This week’s Vehicle Spotlight illuminates a nifty old car donated to Feed the Children: a 1986 Chevrolet Celebrity.
This car is certainly a lot boxier than most models on the road today, but this car earned its name, as the highest selling vehicle in the US in 1986. Talk about Celebrity!
Though the Celebrity has a roofline identical to the Buick Century, the rear-covered fascia differentiates the two.
A contemporary ad boasted:
Celebrity…Shaped for the way you drive today.
The way we drive today certainly seems to have changed, so this donor gladly parted ways with their vintage vehicle in order to help an amazing charity they care deeply about.
Feed the Children
This donor chose to donate their famous car to Feed the Children, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger. No child should ever go hungry and Feed the Children strives to achieve that goal.
Did you know that 1 in 7 children around the world don’t have enough food, largely due to poverty? There is more than enough food to go around, but not everyone has the resources to get a seat at the table.
Every day, Feed the Children provides meals for over 263,000 children. They provide food for children in the US, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Kenya, Malwai, Nicaragua, Philippines, Tanzania, and Uganda.
In addition, they understand that in order to break the cycle of poverty, children need a good education. Feed the Children provides school meals to incentivize attendance and help kids focus. They also work with local builders to ensure the school buildings themselves are sufficient.
