This year’s Kokosing Food Drive was an enormous success. Kokosing employees Jerry Estep, Mike Matheny, Brian Strong, Steve Thompson, and Lee Erhardt collected 937 non-perishable food items. In addition to the generous gift of food items, they raised a monetary donation, which when met with Kokosing’s company match, totaled $9,757.00!
This generous gift was delivered in two trucks and presented to Fr. Joe Ashby and Marti Wellendorf, Food Pantry Director, Jerry Estep, Terminal Manager, on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at Kokosing Materials Mansfield Terminal. On hand to take the photo was the Vice President of Kokosing, Inc., Mr. Lee Schloss.
We would like to express our sincere and deepest Thanks for this fantastic gift. This donation will help us buy 100,000 meals. Each year we supply around 250,000 meals to families in need of aid in Richland County.
Again, we say thank you to Kokosing Inc. and to Kokosing Materials and their wonderful employees for their generous gifts to our Food Pantry to help fulfill our mission of feeding our neighbors.
