“Together with employees, contractors, and customers, S&K continues their long tradition of giving by collecting food for the Maryland Food Bank.”
ELDERSBURG, MD. November 15, 2006. S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (SKRoofing.com) continues its tradition of giving by kicking off their 3rd annual holiday food drive this week to benefit the Maryland Food Bank (MDFoodBank.org) and thousands of Marylanders in need of food assistance this holiday season.
Building a Strong and Healthy Community
As a company, S&K has a long-standing tradition of financial giving to a number of worthwhile causes such as Children’s Hospital and The Johns Hopkins Cancer Center. Every holiday season, however, the local home improvement company manages to include employees, contractors, vendors, as well as their customers in the annual food drive that benefits the Maryland Food Bank (MDFoodBank.org). Fighting hunger requires teamwork as there are over 200,000 Marylanders turning to food assistance every year. “This holiday season, S&K hopes that everyone able will contribute to share their blessings with those in need”, stated Charlie McCurry, S&K Director of Sales and food drive organizer.
Last year S&K collected more than 700 lbs. of non-perishable food and non-food items. The goal for the 2006 season is to collect over 1000 lbs. “Our job is easy”, stated McCurry. “All we do is collect and deliver the donations. The credit goes to the local community and the people who have enabled S&K to donate over ½ ton of food to the Maryland Food Bank over the last 2 seasonal drives”. In addition to conducting and sponsoring the local food drive, S&K will match each pound of food donated with a $1 donation.
Maryland Food Bank
S&K choose the Maryland Food Bank because of its reputation for providing nearly 12 million pounds of food annually to 1,000 community food providers – including food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, low-income day care centers, after school programs, senior centers, rehabilitation centers and other food programs. In addition to providing food, the Maryland Food Bank offers ongoing support, services and education to the community food providers in their network.
Canned and non-perishable food, as well as non-food items can be donated at a drop box located at S&K’s showroom at 5399 Enterprise Street in Eldersburg now through December 21, 2006. Most needed food items include canned meat, tuna, salmon, ham and chicken, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, oatmeal, cereal, pasta, canned fruits and vegetables, and soups. Non-food items also needed include diapers, toilet paper, feminine hygiene items, and plastic/paper plates and cups.
