Tesla Owners Club New York State (TOCNYS) was able to raise $2,800 toward a GoFundMe campaign. With leadership at Tesla's Gigafactory New York, TOCNYS will partner to donate these funds to the Food Bank of WNY.
Employees at GFNY have been collecting food items to donate to the Food Bank, as well. Club members from the Niagara Frontier Region are planning a motorcade with their zero-emission vehicles to transport the collected goods.
TOCNYS initially proposed to donate doughnuts and coffee to factory employees, but mutually decided to focus the campaign funds directly on the local community that Tesla GFNY operates in.
