St. Augustine Hunger Center 2016

Help Stock the Pantry!

On Wednesday, Nov. 23, Elk & Elk was at St. Augustine Hunger Center for the annual food drive. This year, we passed out 100 care bags for the homeless with donations from our in-office collection.

For more than a decade Elk & Elk has had the pleasure of supporting St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church and Hunger Center. Watch below for a short recap of the annual Stock the Pantry.

How You Can Help

With over 8,000 meals being served per holiday the Center relies on generous donations from people like you year round. Donations of potatoes, onions, canned gravy, cornbread mix, canned vegetables, bread and cranberry sauce are still needed to complete this year’s holiday meals. The Center will accept store-bought pastries and baked goods as well.

Around 7,000 meals will be delivered to those who cannot leave their homes during the holidays. Interested in volunteering to be a driver for the deliveries? Please call 216-781-5530.
