Academy of Kempo - Hamden
Annual Food Drive -2007
Parents and Friends;
The Academy Of Kempo Martial Arts and I want to thank the students, parents and friends who generously donated to the Academy’s food drive.
With your help the Academy collected over 115 bags of food that was split between the Saint Ann’s Food Kitchen and the Hamden Food Bank. The people who operate these facilities are very grateful for our help as well as the people that this food went to. This food helped many people have a better holiday season and it helped to relieve some of the stress that these families feel in these somewhat difficult economical times.
We would also like to thank the organizations that
were involved to make this an even bigger success. Our major sponsor, the
Advisor Newspaper for running articles about the food drive from October into
December; running these articles caused a tremendous amount of public awareness
about the economical situations of the region and encouraged people from the
community to become more involved in helping the needy. To Allegra
Print in New Haven for their help printing the promotional materials. To
a local school system (which wished to be nameless), and Chris
Bamgboye of State Farm Insurance in Hamden for their help in distributing the
promotional materials. To Barron Gannon & Co., P.C. in
Fairfield, Cooperative Arts and
Humanities Magnet High School in New
Haven, the Boys and Girls Club of
Hartford Southwest Unit, the Jackie Matchett Personnel - Division of Bill May
Staffing in Hamden and the Rascals Gym in Hamden for their distribution of
promotional materials and for their assistance in collecting food from different
areas of town and different areas of the state.
special thanks to Barron Gannon &
Co., P.C., of Fairfield and the
Salvation Army in New Haven for their food donations.
would also like to thank the New Haven Register, the Hamden Journal and the New
Haven Advocate newspapers for their articles on the food drive.
success of this food drive was a collaborated effort on everyone’s part and
everyone should feel proud of his or her efforts.
again thank you!!
