CHANDLER, Ariz., Nov. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OnTrac, a logistics company providing contracted parcel services in the Western United States, donated $10,000 to the 100.7 KSLX inaugural Tex Earnhardt Memorial Food Drive benefitting the St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance. The contribution provides about 70,000 meals for families in need throughout Arizona.

"Last year, we provided holiday meals for more than 12,000 families in the three days leading up to Thanksgiving. We expect that number to rise even higher in this most unique year of 2020," St. Mary's Director of Public Relations Jerry Brown said. "This donation from OnTrac will allow us to distribute 70,000 meals to those in need in our community. We thank OnTrac for this generous donation and for stepping up to help our neighbors during this challenging time."

The KSLX food drive honored well-known Arizona car dealer Tex Earnhardt, who died at 89 in April 2020. Earnhardt was famous for his TV commercials, in which he sat on top of a bull and pitched his auto deals with the trademark slogan of "and that ain't no bull!"

100.7 KSLX radio personalities Mark and NeanderPaul broadcasted the event live from Bashas' at 5555 N 7th Street in Phoenix. Bashas' locations throughout the valley collected food and monetary donations during the on-air event.

"Wow!," said Mark Devine, "this is an amazingly generous donation from OnTrac—it's what giving back to the community looks like."

"We can't thank OnTrac enough for their generous donation. Obviously, this has been a very challenging year for everyone, and St. Mary's Food Bank is no exception. Their generosity will go a long way toward assisting Valley families with their food security concerns. Thanks to everyone involved for making this possible." – Paul Marshall (NeanderPaul).

Community involvement is an integral part of the corporate culture at OnTrac. The company has previously provided support to the American Cancer Society, St. Vincent de Paul, United Food Bank, and other national and local charities.

"It was a pleasure to partner with KSLX this year to help the St. Mary's Food Bank Alliance," said Robert E. Humphrey, Jr., OnTrac Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We want to make a positive difference in the communities we serve, and we were proud to present this donation on behalf of all our employees and their families."
