SYKESVILLE, MD — November 16, 2005 –S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (www.skroofing.com) continues its tradition of giving by kicking off their first Holiday food drive to benefit the Maryland Food Bank (www.mdfoodbank.org).
Now in its second year, S&K’s has even higher expectations than they did for their inaugural drive last year. Last year’s goal – 500 pounds of food and non-perishable goods – was exceeded by 68 pounds, thanks to the generosity of S&K’s staff, vendors and customers. This year they’ve increased the goal to 700 pounds. And to up the ante, S&K will match each pound of food donated with a $1 donation. For every dollar contributed to the Maryland Food Bank, they are able to provide the equivalent of between 6 and 9 meals to Maryland’s needy families and individuals.
S&K chose the Maryland Food Bank because of its long-standing reputation for helping thousands of people in Maryland each week through 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.
“S&K has been privileged to have worked with so many generous and kind customers, vendors and staff in our 25 years”, said Maija Kropp, Vice President of S&K, “We look forward each holiday season to giving back in whatever way we can. Because of the success of last year’s drive, this year we’re starting a little earlier and setting our goals even higher. The Maryland Food Bank is a great organization that feeds more than 45,000 of needy Marylanders each week – participating again this year is really a no-brainer for us!”
Canned and non-perishable food, as well as non-food items can be donated at a drop box located at S&K’s office at 1341 W. Liberty Road in Sykesville, just across the street from South Carroll High School. 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.
