            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.

The Academy of Kempo Martial Arts is accepting donations for Saint Annís Soup Kitchen as well as the Keefe Centerís Food Bank. These two organizations 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.

The 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 encouraged.

        The Academy of Kempo Martial Arts is accepting donations now through the end of the holiday season, at 1890 Dixwell Ave. 

        For more information contact the Academy at (203) 288-9990, or online at
