Mintz + Hoke’s Holiday Message: $10 Donation Feeds a Hungry Person for a Week

This holiday season Mintz + Hoke is sponsoring a virtual food drive to benefit Connecticut Food Bank, an organization that solves tough challenges, stretches donated dollars and makes a difference in the lives of the nearly half a million food-insecure people in Connecticut. In addition to an online food drive, the Avon, CT-based advertising agency is making a donation to Connecticut Food Bank on behalf of partners and friends.

“We never say no to hard work. That’s why it was an easy decision to join the Connecticut Food Bank in their fight against hunger and mission to provide nutritious food to people in need. Together, we can promote awareness and hope our friends and partners will consider supporting this worthy organization,” said agency President Ron Perine.

A holiday greeting page on the agency’s site features video produced in house, illustrating holiday symbols and reiterating the real need that exists. Visitors are asked to “Imagine the holidays without all the food” and to support Connecticut Food Bank by making a donation.

Dollars donated to Connecticut Food Bank go far. A donation of only about $10 can feed one person for an entire week. In addition to supplying more than 22 million pounds of food to programs across 127 cities and towns in our state, the Connecticut Food Bank works with more than 4,000 volunteers to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors who struggle with hunger. It’s estimated that in Connecticut there are nearly 490,000 people at risk of hunger every year. These are people from all walks of life – children, working parents, seniors or people living with disabilities. They are our neighbors.
