Helpful Honda Team gives back to community

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- After a year of having funny car ads on TV, the Helpful Honda Team is now taking their "funny" help to the streets. Only this time, it's to legitimately help people.

Tara Walker with the local Helpful Honda Team said they started collecting non-perishable food at the beginning of August. In just three weeks, they collected about 1,500 pounds.

On Friday, they took that food to St. Mary's Food Bank and started boxing it up to hand out to those in need.

Walker said the team is planning more events like this in order to give back to a community that has treated Honda so well.
