McKinley ASSP Donates to Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank

Posted: Aug 03, 2020

COVID-19 has changed the world and more people than ever are in need of food assistance. The McKinley Chapter of the ASSP recently donated to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank which serves all the counties within McKinley ASSP’s geographic area.

The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank provides food and other essential items to member hunger-relief programs in eight Northeast Ohio counties: Carroll, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas and Wayne. These member programs operate nearly 500 food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs in the neighborhoods and communities where people need. The Foodbank’s mission is to lead a collaborative network that empowers people to experience healthy and hunger-free lives. We distribute food to feed people, and we advocate, engage and convene our community in the fight to end hunger.

The support the Foodbank receives through community donations plays a vital role in their commitment to Feed People and Fight Hunger. Every 1.2 pounds of food donated to the Foodbank will provide 1 meal. Every $1 donation to the Foodbank will provide 4 nourishing meals to food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs in our eight-county service region.

April 13 Chapter Meeting Cancelled

Posted: Mar 16, 2020

As you know, the landscape around the coronavirus pandemic continues to shift rapidly. Over the past few days, many communities and states across the United States have enacted new measures and added travel and social distancing precautions to slow the spread of coronavirus. Based on these developments and out of an abundance of caution and care, we are cancelling our meeting that had been scheduled for April 13.

Our top priority is protecting the health and well-being of our chapter members and our local communities. As we all adapt to the new realities this situation is creating, please continue to follow the latest guidance from organizations like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization, as well as information from our local health and government authorities. Be sure to check ASSP’s website frequently for updates as well. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for your understanding!
