St. Augustine Hunger Center

Food drive Nov. 21 to benefit hunger center, sponsored by Elk & Elk

On Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012, members of the Elk & Elk family will load up a truck full of turkeys and head to the St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church Hunger Center in Tremont. For the eighth consecutive year, we will join with Cleveland sports radio host Mark "Munch" Bishop to help stock the parish pantry for the year to come.

On top of donating turkeys, our office goal this year is to fill our trailer with food donations collected from our employees.

The center will be collecting monetary and food donations from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the center at 2486 W. 14th St. Elk & Elk is proud to match every dollar given up to $12,000 during the Thanksgiving food drive.

We would love to see many of you come through and give of yourself to help those in need.
