McDONALD, Ohio - Second Harvest Food Bank received a $10,000 donation from the Grainger Foundation on Saturday.

The foundation partnered with Speed Sports and the Lyon's 5K Feed the Need Run and Fun Walk to raise money and donations to help feed families in the region.

The Austintown based company is a supplier of maintenance, repair, and operating products. "It's people supporting others in need and doing things that will help support and move things forward in a very positive way. It's about the people and what we're able to do together to make such a great event happen," said Jeff Hughes from the Grainger Foundation.

"We're so grateful to the Grainger Foundation that $10,000 dollar donation will mean hundreds of families are fed this holiday season," said Mike Iberis, Executive Director of Second Harvest Food Bank.

For every dollar donated, Second Harvest can buy $15 worth of food.

The gift from the Grainger Foundation will help families in Trumbull, Mahoning, and Columbiana counties.
