GoPro Motorplex’s food drive strives to give back to community
MOORESVILLE — GoPro Motorplex’s fifth annual food drive is a way for the outdoor karting facility in Mooresville to give back to its community and customers during the holiday season.
Now in its fifth year, the Thanksgiving food drive offers a discount on the purchase of a rental kart race for customers who donate to the food drive, which benefits the Mooresville Soup Kitchen.
On Nov. 1-19, customers can buy a rental kart race at GoPro Motorplex for $15 (a $10 discount) with each donation of five nonperishable food items. There is no limit to the number of canned foods customers can donate, which allows them to buy multiple races at the discount price.
Last year, the food drive yielded more than 2 tons of canned foods to help stock Mooresville Soup Kitchen’s shelves. Each year, 100 percent of the donations received at GoPro Motorplex support the mission of providing meals and encouragement to those in need.
The Mooresville Soup Kitchen is the first stop for many who are in need and looking for direction. It serves more than 4,000 meals monthly from its location in downtown Mooresville and provides emergency food boxes and other resources as needed.
