The Karpinski Engineering team raised $6,469 this year for Cleveland’s Harvest for Hunger and Columbus’s Operation Feed, surpassing its $5,000 goal.
The food banks receiving these funds have considerable buying power, so the money raised will go much farther than it would in a grocery store: The Greater Cleveland Food Bank can turn $1 into 4 nutritious meals, while Columbus’s Mid-Ohio Foodbank can use a $1 donation to distribute over $11 worth of food and grocery products.
That’s a lot of food for hungry neighbors in our community.
We couldn’t have done it without the participation of the KE team or the help of our sponsors.
Food brings people together, as several of KE’s campaign events show: a Columbus office chili cook-off (above), a Cleveland office crock-pot cook-off (below), and a post-St. Patty’s Day breakfast. We know how to eat – and the money we raised is helping others to eat, too.
Several Cleveland staff volunteered at the Cleveland Food Bank. They sorted the food donations that will later be packed and sent to distribution points across the region.
