— Company will donate $1 for every pound of food collected —
ELDERSBURG, MD. November 6, 2007 – S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (SKRoofing.com) announced today the kick-off of their 4th annual Holiday Food Drive to benefit the Maryland Food Bank (MDFoodBank.org) and thousands of Marylanders in need of food assistance every year.
Building a Strong and Healthy Community
Last year S&K collected more than 1,000 lbs. of non-perishable food and non-food items. The goal this year is to collect 1,500 lbs. “It gives us great satisfaction to be able to involve our customers, suppliers and employees in this event”, stated Charlie McCurry, S&K Director of Sales and food drive organizer. “With the help of the local community, which is where the credit truly goes, we are able to help those who are a little less fortunate.”
In addition to collecting and donating food, S&K will match each pound of food collected with a $1 donation.
Canned and non-perishable food, as well as non-food items can be donated at a drop box located in S&K’s showroom at 5399 Enterprise Street in Eldersburg now through December 19, 2007. Most needed food items include canned meat, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, oatmeal, cereal, pasta, canned fruits and vegetables, and soup. Non-food items needed include diapers, toilet paper, feminine hygiene items, and plastic/paper plates and cups.
