Armstrong’s Avenge Hunger Campaign Seeks Donations

NORTH LIMA, Ohio – The fifth annual Armstrong Avenge Hunger campaign is getting many non-perishable food and monetary donations, but the campaign still has a long way to go to help feed hungry families in the Mahoning Valley, says Greg Rhoton, community marketing and local programming manager. 

The Avenge Hunger campaign continues through Oct. 3.

Armstrong will hold a food drive from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday at its North Lima office, 9328 Woodworth Road. With every minimum $5 donation and/or bag of non-perishable food, donors are entered to win one of two Chromebooks.

Rhoton says Armstrong would like to thank its campaign partners. Among them are Sparkle Markets, Giant Eagle of Canfield, Boardman Fire Department, The Glista Agency, Gateways To Better Living, Eastwood Mall, HBA, Canfield Health Center, Nemenz IGA, High Octane Coffee, Davis Family YMCA and all the individuals and businesses that have already donated.

There is still time for individuals and businesses to hold a food drive and fundraising event or donate to the Avenge Hunger campaign, Rhoton says. Food donations can be made at Sparkle Markets, Giant Eagle in Canfield, Davis Family YMCA, High Octane Coffee in Boardman, Eastwood Mall and Nemenz IGA. Through the duration of the campaign, food and monetary donations also can be dropped off weekdays at the Armstrong office.

Armstrong’s Breaking Bread initiative began in 2010 with the purpose of feeding those who are food-insecure within the communities Armstrong serves. It is a four-pronged approach that includes collecting food and money, volunteering time plus creating public awareness. The first Avenge Hunger Month was held in September 2018 to help bring more awareness to Breaking Bread and generate more donations to local feeding programs.
