Ladies and gentleman, Alphas and Elders, it’s back. Yes, we’ve finally recovered from last year’s hangover, and it’s time to get blood thirsty for the 7th annual Wolf Pack Pub Prowl! For those new to the pack, this is the hideous wolf t-shirt clad bar crawl that fills the streets of Cincinnati every year. Proceeds benefit Freestore Foodbank and the West Clermont Wolf Pack Pantry.
Freestore Foodbank is happy to partner with Meijer this fall to provide hunger relief to local families through its #SimplyGive hunger relief program. Donate at the register. Your donations are DOUBLED on August 30 and September 13! Visit www.meijercommunity.com to learn more.
On Sunday, September 1, 200,000 rubber ducks will swim in the Ohio River along the Serpentine Wall. The first prize winner will receive a 2019 Honda CR-V courtesy of Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Honda Dealers, and possibly $1 million, if their duck is the “KEMBA Million Dollar Duck.” The second prize winner will receive $100 in gift cards from Kroger every week for a year ($5,200 total), and five additional winners will receive $500 cash from KEMBA Credit Union. Ducks are available now! The Rubber Duck Regatta is the Freestore Foodbank’s largest fundraising event, raising over a million dollars a year for the last five years.
Subway is celebrating Hunger Action Month this September in local communities! This affects 150 food banks some have one store participating and others 700. Let us know if you need help clarifying your part. For every 2 Subway meals sold, one meal ($0.10) will be donated to a Feeding America local food bank. Maximum donations vary in Subway markets. You DO NOT have to buy 2 meals at a time to have 1 donated. Every meal counts this month!
