St. Augustine Hunger Center Food Drive 2017

On Wednesday, November 22, Elk & Elk will once again help our friends at St. Augustine Hunger Center stock the pantry for the holidays.

St. Augustine Hunger Center provides 20,000 Thanksgiving dinners, 17,000 Christmas dinners and 15,000 Easter dinners each year to people in need throughout the Greater Cleveland Community. Holiday meals are served at the Hunger Center in Tremont and delivered to those who are unable to leave their homes.

Elk & Elk has been involved with St. Augustine Hunger Center for around 20 years. The firm supplies turkeys and other holiday meal staples, and employees spend the day before Thanksgiving unloading donations and preparing food.
