Beginning on Friday, Nov. 16, 2012, the company’s Parma Communications Store, located at 7779 Day Drive, will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Hunger Center.
In addition to the food drive, Verizon Wireless will donate $1,000 to the Hunger Center to help with the anticipated increased demand for food as we enter the holiday season.
“This time of year can be particularly difficult for families trying to put food on the table,” said Mark Frazier, president–Ohio/Pennsylvania/West Virginia Region, Verizon Wireless. “At Verizon Wireless, we want to do what we can to help ensure the Parma Hunger Center has its shelves stocked and ready to meet the community’s needs.”
