Help Porsche Conshohocken Phil-a-Frunk this Thanksgiving!

On Thursday, November 29, 2018, Porsche Conshohocken will be sending a 2019 Porsche Cayenne filled with nonperishable food items to “Phil-a-Frunk” at the Capital Grille in King of Prussia.

In conjunction with WMMR’s Camp Out for Hunger and the Preston and Steve Show, Porsche is asking anyone and everyone to stop by their showroom and fill up the Cayenne with food items of their own. 

Last year, Porsche members raised a crazy 84,719 pounds of food and were the 4th largest donors for Philabundance in a three mile caravan featuring 188 Porsches and averaged 106 pounds of food per Porsche.

The cool thing about this event is that anyone can attend and help out! All you need is a trunk with nonperishable foods filled to the top. The event starts at the Capital Grille in King of Prussia and goes all the way to the Preston and Steve Show Camp out For Hunger at Xfinity Live.

Porsche is doing something good this holiday season and everyone who is or isn’t a Porsche owner should do the same thing. There is an increase every year of adults and children who go hungry every day in the Philadelphia area, and if you can help stop that trend then what are you waiting for?

Don’t miss the chance to drop off your food items at Porsche Conshohocken before Thursday, November 29, 2018. Porsche Conshohocken is located at 1312 W. Ridge Pike, Conshohocken, PA 19428. They are open Monday-Thursday, 9 am to 8 pm. Friday from 9 am to 6 pm, and Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm. They are closed on Sunday. You can also find them on Instagram and Facebook.
