Local business donates at Feed the Need fundraiser in McDonald Village

Posted: Updated:
MCDONALD, Ohio - A local business is leading the race in helping feed our Valley's hungry.
 
Saturday, over 300 adults and kids took part in a walk or run in the McDonald Lyons Club's Feed the Need 5k run.
 
Prior to that run, the Grainger Foundation made a donation of $10,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank. Grainger, located in Austintown, sells industrial supplies and work solutions.
 
The marketing manager for Grainger says giving to help others is a great way to help and serve people in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties.
 
The executive director for Second Harvest Food Bank, Mike Iberis, says the $10,000 donation will be leveraged by the food bank to buy $150,000 dollars of food to help people in the Valley.
 
He says this will help the agency meet the needs of the 15,000 people who need food in our region.
 
Iberis says this help comes just in time for Christmas and the holiday season.
 
Over the past four years, the Grainger Foundation has donated $40,000.
 
With that money, Second Harvest has been able to buy $600,00 worth of food to help feed people in Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana counties.
 
The agency helped feed 17-thousand people each week in the tri county area this month.
