9th Annual Food Drive November 07, 2018

9th Annual Food Drive

Here at Metisentry, we are committed to helping our neighbors, friends and children’s classmates. We realize the importance of being involved in the community and aim to make an impact on those around us.

Team Metisentry is excited to announce that we are continuing our support of the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank this year. This will mark our 9th consecutive year contributing items to help replenish their pantry. We are collecting donations in our Akron office from Monday, November 5th through Friday, November 16th. And with the foodbank only being a five minute drive from our building, we are happy to support those so close to home!

In 2017, we set a goal to collect 100 pounds of food. We surpassed that goal and were able to provide over 130 meals! This year, we are aiming to make an even bigger impact on our community by setting our goal to collect 150 pounds of food!

To help us reach our goal, we are excited to announce that we are, once again, leading a building wide food drive this year! We are thrilled to be collecting food donations along with fellow Nantucket Building members including Albrecht Inc., Coffee & Code and Niekamp, Weisensell, Mutersbaugh & Mastrantonio, LLP. Together, we will make an even bigger impact on our community!

Metisentry supports the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank’s mission of empowering people to experience healthy and hunger-free lives and we invite you to get involved by:

Donating a “Super Six” item:

  • Boxed Cereal
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Tuna
