Selfless Elf 5K

It was a cold morning with freezing rain, but we were warm in our elf socks and Christmas shirts. The 5K benefited the Akron Food Bank, which was named the Food Bank of the Year by Feeding America. Below are just a few of the food banks accomplishments.

  • Increasing distribution to 19.4 million pounds of food and targeted its outreach in priority counties
  • Cultivating new donors and balancing fundraising strategies, resulting in 100% increase in funds raised in the past two years
  • Creating a new Feeding Kids Initiative to help the one in four kids suffering from food insecurity
  • Developing creative tools to engage and educate the public, like the Hungry Kate video.

We walked and talked. Maybe next year we’ll train to run, or maybe not :).
