Cincinnati Airport Fast Park Raises Money, Food for Freestore Foodbank

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - September 14, 2009) - Airport Fast Park, an off-site airport parking company located at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, and its customers are raising money and food for the Freestore Foodbank. The company's second annual food drive will take place Sept. 14 through Oct. 11. All items will be donated to Freestore Foodbank. Airport Fast Park will donate $1 for every pound of non-perishable food donated by customers.

Food banks across the country are struggling to keep up with demand this year. According to Feeding America, the demand for food assistance has risen 30 percent in the past year.

"We received such a tremendous response from our customers last year during our first food drive," said Melanie Chavez, chief marketing officer at Fast Park, "that we couldn't imagine not doing it again this year. We hope to once again be able to contribute and make a significant impact in our community."

Airport Fast Park is conducting similar food drives at each of its off-site airport parking facilities across the country.

Last year, Airport Fast Park collected more than 275 pounds of food for Freestore Foodbank. Collectively, the company donated nearly 5,000 pounds of food to food banks in 2008. Fast Park's monetary match will help to feed even more people in need this year.

"We are grateful to have the support from Fast Park and its customers this year," said John Young, President & CEO, Freestore Foodbank. "Our need for food is increased this year and this will help us to serve more people."

Fast Park operates two facilities, Airport Fast Park (618 Petersburg Rd., Hebron, KY 41048) and FastPark & Relax (613 Petersburg Rd., Hebron, KY 41048) at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Both facilities provide a shuttle service that, unlike other parking facilities, conveniently picks up patrons directly outside their car door. Each facility also provides complimentary jump starts and flat-tire assistance, free bottled water and newspapers and free luggage assistance to get the whole family onto the shuttle as quickly as possible. In addition, the Airport Fast Park location offers oil change and car wash services. Airportfastpark.com and Fastparkandrelax.com both offer special Internet pricing for $6.00 per day (excluding tax) at the Cincinnati facilities.
