Thursday, June 11, 2020 the Akron Rotary Club, Akron Rotary Foundation delivered the "Coin Boxes" and a Foundation check to the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank. We were so happy to hand-off the beloved coin boxes, in the amount of $127.00, to  Mr. Joe May, Manager of the State and Federal Communications Food Banks (non-profit organization located in Akron). Mr. Jim Redmond presented a matching check of $125.00 to Natalie Peacock, Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank specialist.
The Harvest for Hunger Campaign, vital to the Foodbank's hunger relief efforts, was a kick-off breakfast back in February and the Akron Rotary Club was represented by 10 "Lady" Rotarians.  Coin boxes were carried out and became a featured centerpiece at Akron Rotary Club lunches until the beginning of March — COVID-19 hit! We did our best to keep the campaign alive as we zoomed our luncheon meetings collecting Happy coins and drive by donations.
Many thanks for all who donated and helped on a service project by the Akron Rotary Club for a total of $252.00 supporting the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank, feeding people and fighting hunger.  They couldn't do it with ALL of us supporting their case.
