Car Dealers Make "Can the Bobcats" Food Drive History

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The annual Can the Bobcats food drive is well underway in Missoula, and on Friday, two local car dealers made the biggest donations in the event's history.

Karl Tyler Chevrolet and Cadillac donated 12,000 pounds of potatoes to the food drive, which benefits Missoula Food Bank.

Officials at Lithia Toyota answered that donation with 2,800 pounds of squash and cabbage.

Sandi Tyler, of Karl Tyler Chevrolet and Cadillac, said, "That affects families right here in Missoula, people that need, just a little bit of help on occasion, it's a great thing."

Jessica Allred, of Missoula Food Bank, said, "This food is going to be on the tables on Thanksgiving day for families who would otherwise go without."

Ever year, Missoula competes with Bozeman to see which city can collect the most food in the two weeks preceding the Griz-Cat football game.

The drive runs through the 23rd, the day of the game.
