Food Drive Success!

Blog Action Day, a national movement focused this year on raising awareness for poverty, took place on October 15th. Our blog post that day described the challenges faced by people in Winnebago county concerning hunger and poverty. But raising awareness wasn't enough, we felt like there was more we could do, so E-Power Marketing decided to host a food drive.

Bags and boxes of food were collected, and though we lost our conference room to all of the donations, we were happy with the progress. In just three weeks, E-Power Marketing collected 880 pounds of food.

E-Power Marketing employees delivered the donations to the Emmanuel UCC food pantry on Tuesday Nov. 25. As part of its sponsorship, E-Power Marketing matched $1 for every pound of food donated. Along with the 880 pounds of food that was donated, Larry Stopa, President of E-Power Marketing, will present a check for $880 to the Emmanuel UCC food pantry.

E-Power Marketing would like to thank all those who donated to this cause, it was a great success! Though both the food drive and Blog Action Day are over for this year, E-Power Marketing continues to stay involved with our community. Stay tuned for future updates on what we're doing!
