Every day we are seeing a little more daylight, experiencing a little more warmth and in our work here those are prime ingredients for Growing Hope. We are in the midst of our largest food and fundraising campaign of the year – Harvest for Hunger. For every $1 donated Second Harvest can distribute 5 meals. Our goal is to collect enough to surpass 1 Million Meals and you can help today with your online donation.
As the community takes up this grassroots effort, there’s a real feeling of resolve to help families and friends who are hungry. Giant Eagle and Heinen’s – running their Check out Hunger campaign are offering a few new ideas to raise funds and have some fun. Stop by the Amherst Giant Eagle on Tuesday, March 20 from 3-5PM. They will be hosting a Celebrity Bagging event. Honorary Harvest for Hunger Chairperson and Lorain County Commissioner, Lori Kokoski, and WKYC-TV3 personality, Tiffany Tarpley, will be bagging groceries for anyone who donates $5 or $10 at the register. Other local celebrities will also be available. On Saturday, March 24 from 10-4PM at the Avon Heinen’s, they will be running a Harvest for Hunger Carnival. Fun, games and prizes for all. Most off all, help for those in need.
