HAMDEN - In September, the
Academy of Kempo Martial Arts of Hamden kicked off their annual food
drive by dropped off their first load of food to the local soup
kitchen. The students, families and friends of the Academy have
generously donated over 13 bags of non-perishable food to date and
continue to donate on a weekly basis.
Academy of Kempo Martial Arts is accepting donations for Saint Annís
Soup Kitchen as well as the Keefe Centerís Food Bank. These two
help many families who have a limited amount of
resources available to them due to current economic conditions. The
goal of the Academy is to help these organizations to help these
families enjoy their holidays by holding this food drive, and Academy
hopes that during this season of giving that they can encourage others
to help also.
Academy is offering its students a free semi-private lesson for any
five non-perishable items
they donate and offering two weeks of free lessons to non-students
(limited to one give away per person and cannot be combined). The
Academy is hoping that this will encourage more people to give, and of
course if you wish to give without accepting the offer that is also
