As we honor veterans on November 11th, it may be shocking to learn that more than 1 in 4 local households seeking food assistance from Second Harvest contain a veteran or an active member of the military.
Since its inception 32 years ago, the Holiday Cheer campaign has raised over $900,000 for Second Harvest, equaling millions of meals for families struggling with hunger. A community effort led by Burger King, WOBL 1320 AM, and WDLW 1380 AM, Holiday Cheer raises money for Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio each holiday season.
Between Hunger Action Month and Generous Helpings, September is always a sprint from start to finish. On September 9th, we were a fortunate recipient of a $50,000 grant from the Walmart Foundation.
Fighting to End Hunger One Bowl at a Time: Saturday, October 10, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Bleser Park, Avon Lake. Enjoy some soup, bread, education and entertainment for a cause.
Your generosity made the tenth annual Generous Helpings a success!
