A special THANK YOU to WEOL, Tim Alcorn and Chris Zeitler from Jamie’s Carpets. They completed their Touchdown to Tackle Hunger Campaign. Every Friday night during the local high school football season, Jamie’s Carpets donated $10 to Second Harvest. This month, they made a check presentation to Second Harvest for $1,020. That will provide 5,100 meals for local families.
Yoga at Second Harvest? The first-ever volunteer and yoga session was held at Second Harvest on the first Saturday of the month. Tana, from Threads of Wellness, held a volunteer and yoga session at the food bank. We’re hoping to continue this fun and relaxing event next month! Stay tuned!
Second Harvest helped the Share Your Holidays with the Food and Fund Drive put on by Channel 19 WOIO. The TV station was on location each day of the week for their evening news. Thursday, December 7, WOIO we participated in a LIVE broadcast from the parking lot of the Levin Furniture store in Avon . The Second Harvest truck, staff members and Board members were there to accept donations and share a few words about the local hunger issue to the viewers. Groups running food drives and others wanting to help dropped off donations and even had a chance to be on TV!
On Tuesday, December 21, 2017, stop by for lunch or dinner at Quaker Steak & Lube in Vermilion and you can help out those who struggle with hunger in our area. The restaurant will donate 10% of the bill that day to Second Harvest.
