Hunger Challenge 2019
April 1, 2019 @ 12:00 am - April 30, 2019 @ 11:30 pm
Each year, Kent Social Services and the Center of Hope team up with local philanthropists and city mayors for a friendly competition to get the most monetary and non-perishable food item donations. Hal Dubois, executive Director if the Dubois Family Foundation, and Neil Mann, CEO of Allen Aircraft Products have generously offered to match a portion of monetary donations made to each organization. As part of the Hunger Challenge, Ravenna Mayor Frank Seman, and Kent Mayor Jerry Fiala also compete to see who can raise the most money for their city. On Saturday April 27th from 10am until 1pm, Fiala will be at Kent Social Services to collect donations and Seman will volunteer to collect donations at the Center of Hope.
All donations made from April 1 through April 30 will count toward the Hunger Challenge. Kent Social Services is located at 1066 S. Water Street in Kent and the Center of Hope is located on 1081 W. Main Street in Ravenna.
