ARK Continues Making an Impact at the Second Harvest Food Bankauto
In January, the board gathered to discuss and hand out funds raised in 2021. Due to covid, we haven’t done big check presentations as we have in years past, but, that doesn’t mean we aren’t still doing the good work! Amounts were decided and checks were mailed! We sent money to Northwest PA Autism Society, Second Harvest Food Bank, Erie Dawn, EUMA’s The Refuge and the Bethesda Community Center.
Last night we had the pleasure of meeting Natalie from the Second Harvest Food Bank who asked if she could come meet us and do a check presentation. Natalie was beyond thrilled with our donation and let us know that what we donated provided over 26000 MEALS!!! Yes, 26,000!!
Since 2015, ARK has donated $66,450 to the Second Harvest Food Bank, specifically earmarked for the Backpack Program which goes to school aged children in need. That $66,450 translates into 398,700 MEALS!!!!
This is just a small portion of what we have donated out to local charities over the years and we represent each and every one of YOU! We are nothing without you! Thank you so much for your support and we hope to continue this amazing work!!
The Second Harvest Food Bank does amazing work and we are so incredibly proud to help in any way we can. They have programs to help military families in Erie, Franklin & Mercer Counties, along with their Backpack Programs which is in 54 Schools now!!!
