— S&K will donate $1 for every pound of food collected —
ELDERSBURG, MD. October 30, 2008 – Today, S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (SKRoofing.com) announced that the company will be kicking off their 5th annual Holiday Food Drive to benefit the Maryland Food Bank (MDFoodBank.org).
Last year, S&K collected a staggering 2,222 pounds of food, which was delivered to the Maryland Food Bank. In addition, S&K matched each pound of food collected with a $1 monetary donation and presented the Maryland Food Bank with a $2,222 check from S&K Sales Director Charlie McCurry.
“This year, the goal is even higher as we hope to reach 2,500 pounds”, stated McCurry. “It’s ambitious I know, but with the help of our community we can do it. Food donations at the Maryland Food Bank are at an all time low this year and we need to aim high so we can help as many people as possible.”
Since the first annual food drive in 2003, the company has donated over 2 tons of food to the Maryland Food Bank.
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 17, 2008. 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.
