Metisentry Participates in 8th Annual Food Drive

Eager to help our community, Team Metisentry has partnered with the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank for our 8th Annual Food Drive.  Only a quick, five minute drive from our office, the food bank feeds over 263,000 people throughout eight counties in Northeast Ohio, yearly.

Our event takes place from Monday, November 6 through Friday, November 17, 2017.  A donation box is set up in the office for collection to help feed our neighbors, friends and children’s classmates.

We are proud to be from Northeast Ohio and are always looking for new and exciting ways to promote team building and further our community involvement initiatives. Giving back is a distinct pleasure and we are glad to help those in need, spread the word and take contributions.

In 2016, Team Metisentry set an ambitious goal to collect 50 pounds of food. Close to doubling that effort, with your help, we raised over 93 pounds of food. That’s more than 75 meals!

With a goal to collect over 100 pounds of canned items and supplies, we will need the support & contribution of the entire community. Therefore, as a property-wide effort, within the businesses operating in the Nantucket Building, Metisentry has partnered with Niekamp, Weisensell, Mutersbaugh & Mastrantonio, LLP and Albrecht, Inc. to achieve our goal.

Together, we are committed to helping the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank replenish their pantry. Metisentry supports their mission of empowering people to experience healthy and hunger-free lives and we invite you to get involved by:

Donating a “Super Six” item:

  • Boxed Cereal
  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Tuna
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Canned Beef Stew
  • Canned Soup

Donating one of the following:

  • Dried Pasta, Rice & Beans
  • Condiments & Salad Dressing
  • Cleaning Supplies (Laundry, Household Cleaners)
  • Paper Goods (Paper Towels, Facial Tissue, Bathroom Tissue)
