RoS has been serving the Huntsville community for over a decade. They provide emotional and spiritual support while also providing nutritious meals to the communities that need them.

On a July afternoon, volunteers arrived at Rose of Sharon to pick up their boxes to deliver to residents. In addition to delivering the food boxes, “going door-to-door also provides opportunity for fellowship,” according to a statement from Landers McLarty Subaru.

Landers McLarty Subaru also announced a partnership with Rose of Sharon for the next year to cover all the costs they incur by volunteering time, donating funds and helping feed local families.

Ultimately, the partnership hopes that going into specific neighborhoods with messages of hope and nutritious food will make a “significant impact in battling food insecurity in the community.”
