Summer Drop-Off Events Recap 2018

We just wanted to thank everyone who attended and donated their kitchen items at the Summer Drop Offs we held this summer! In six drop offs, we were able to collect 2,092 POUNDS of donated kitchen items!! This is 2,092 pounds of items that might have ended up in landfills (or at least collecting dust in your kitchen or basement!) that will now be able to go back into our community to help those in need be able to share a meal at home with their families.

A very special thank you to the markets and market managers to helped make this possible by allowing us to show up to their markets and have these Drop Off events. This year we were fortunate to have been able to work with Erin and Serena at Countryside Conservancy at Howe Meadow and Highland Square, Andrew at Haymaker Farmers’ Market, Gary at Stow Community Farmers Market, and Terri and Lori at Main Street Wadsworth Farmers Market.

We have been fortunate enough to have had a lot of help both at the markets and back in Kent by volunteers to help load up, unload, sort, put away, break down boxes, and clean up. Those volunteers are crucial to making sure that these types of events can exist!

We have also been fortunate to work with our partners a lot this summer to keep everything moving. Almost as fast as things have been coming in during this busy summer, they have been helping us to move them out!

Post Drop Off: Haymaker Kent 6/16/18

Today we were able to collect over 300 pounds of used kitchen equipment at our drop off event at Haymaker Farmers Market in Kent!

It was wonderful to have been at a market that is so local to us! We were able to not only collect used kitchen equipment, but also to bring awareness about our non-profit organization in our home town!

We had a great time meeting everyone that came out yesterday to donate, or who just stumbled upon us!

A special thank you to Andrew Rome and his crew at the Haymaker Market. It is truly such a beautiful market and we are so appreciative to have been able to be a part of it today.

Look for us at our next drop off event on July 12 at Countryside Conservancy’s Highland Square 4-7 PM!
