Hunger Free Mondays are a great success!
A Huge Thank You to United Fiber & Data for sponsoring us again for Hunger Free Mondays at the York Revolutions Stadium!
We would also like to greatly thank everyone who brought nonperishable food items to any of the collection sites this summer! We hope you enjoyed watching the York Revolution as much as we did during the three Monday night games!
We cannot stress enough how gracious we are to all of those who participated this year! Without your support we would never be able to bring nutritional assitance to thousands of our hungry York neighbors!
Last year, United Fiber & Data presented Hunger Free Mondays with the York Revolutions to benefit the York County Food Bank. We collected 2,014 lbs of food to feed our hungry neighbors over the course of the five Hunger Free Monday games. In addition to their event sponsorship, United Fiber & Data donated 50 cents for every pound of food collected during the games.
The York County Food Bank estimates that approximately 50,000 York County residents, including 17,000 children, do not have a consistent supply of and access to nutritious food. The food we received from this event will have a dramatic impact on our ability to ensure our neighbors do not go hungry during these final summer weeks.
Tremendous thanks to the York Revolution for their incredible support of the program, to United Fiber & Data for their extraordinary generosity, to YRK Creative for their artistic and design expertise and to all of the game-goers who contributed to helping us fight hunger in the York community! Special thanks to YRK Creative for producing the Hunger Free Mondays video!
