Academy of Kempo Martial Arts
Food Drive a Success
To The Editor: January 7, 2010
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 45 bags of food that was split between 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 November 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), for allowing us to distribute promotional materials so we could get the word out and collect more food.
We would also like to thank the Elm City Express a New Haven Register Blog, the Post-Chronicle Newspaper and their web site, and Blog about Hamden for their articles about the food drive.
The success of this food drive was a collaborated effort on everyone’s part and everyone should feel proud of his or her efforts.
