— 2009 Company Goal to Donate 2,500 Pounds of Food and Match with a Dollar-per-pound Donation to the Maryland Food Bank —
ELDERSBURG, Md. October 22, 2009 – S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (SKRoofing.com) announced today the kick-off of their 6th Annual Holiday Food Drive to benefit the Maryland Food (MDFoodBank.org). Their aggressive goal this year is to beat last year’s 2,000 pound/$2,000 donation by 500 pounds/dollars.
“Each year more and more companies and individuals join us in our efforts,” stated Charlie McCurry, Sales Director at S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows. “Now more than ever, Marylander’s need our help. The Maryland Food Bank has indicated that due to the economy, contributions are way behind. I am hopeful that our customers and neighbors will dig deep once again. We are hoping for a record year,” added McCurry.
As in previous years, S&K will match each pound of food collected with a $1 monetary donation. Since their first food drive in 2003, S&K has donated over 5,000 pounds of food to the Maryland Food Bank.
Canned and non-perishable food, as well as non-food items can be donated during business hours at a drop box located in S&K’s Eldersburg showroom or dropped off after hours near the showroom entrance. And new this year, S&K is willing to place food drop boxes at any company within 15 miles of its showroom. Donations are being accepted now through December 17, 2009.
According to the Maryland Food Bank, the 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, plastic/paper plates and cups.
