Welcome back to another exciting school year; I hope that everyone had a great summer. Rick Young Insurance is sponsoring the 10th Annual Mountain of Food Drive.
I would like to, once again, congratulate last year’s winner - Brighton High School.
Over the last nine years, Detroit area high schools have collected over 422,000 cans of food and have donations amounting over $191,000 for Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan. The winning high school, based on student population, is awarded $5,000. The calculation is based on pounds of food collected and every dollar collected is worth 4-pounds. We can provide boxes and/or posters for your collections. This is an exciting venture to involve our youth in such a worthwhile project.
Given the current state of the economy, every community has families in need. Gleaners food bank will deliver locally. Additionally, there will be incentives for the schools collecting the highest number of cans in September, October, November, and December. If you are interested in collecting food and/or making a monetary donation, contact Rick Young.
