Armstrong Hosts 4th Annual Avenge Hunger Month

BOARDMAN, Ohio — As part of its ongoing Breaking Bread initiative, Armstrong is organizing the fourth annual Avenge Hunger Month from Aug. 31 to Oct. 3.

The food drive helps supply more than 200 community feeding programs throughout Armstrong’s footprint in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, West Virginia, Maryland and Kentucky. In the last three years, the company has collected nearly 100,000 pounds of food and $43,000 in monetary donations for community feeding programs, according to a press release.

“Armstrong is glad to help support the Second Harvest Food Bank, Youngstown Gleaners and all other food pantries in the Mahoning Valley,” said Dan McGahagan, local Armstrong general manager. “I am proud of our employees who support these efforts and make a difference in the place we call home.”

Nonperishable food items and monetary donations can be dropped off at Armstrong’s North Lima office at 9328 Woodworth Road, as well as Sparkle Markets in Cornersburg, Salem, Columbiana, Poland and Lake Milton in Ohio and New Castle, Pa.

Additional drop-off sites include Giant Eagle stores in Poland and Canfield, Nemenz IGA in Struthers, the Davis Family YMCA in Boardman, High Octane Coffee in Boardman, Enviroscapes, the Eastwood Mall, Motel 6 on Belmont Avenue and Onyx Health Club in Niles. Nonperishable food items and monetary donations will also be collected at summer concerts every Tuesday in September at Austintown Park and every Wednesday at Woodworth Park in North Lima.
