Mud Hens and Fifth Third Bank team up for food collection drive

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Toledo Mud Hens and Fifth Third Bank are teaming up to fight local hunger.

Bob LaClair, president and CEO of Fifth Third Bank, along with Joe Napoli, general manager of the Mud Hens, have announced that both organizations will be collecting food this weekend during the Mud Hens' home stand in support of the Cherry Street Mission Ministries.  

Fifth Third chose the food drive as this year's national service project in honor of Fifth Third Day, which occurs annually on May 3. For the second year in a row, Fifth Third Day celebrations will be dedicated to fighting hunger across the Fifth Third Bank footprint. 

Each of the 48 Fifth Third Bank locations in the Toledo Region will also be focused on "Feeding Our Communities," by collecting nonperishable food items. The goal is to provide at least 155,000 meals throughout all the regions served in honor of Fifth Third's 155th anniversary.

Fans attending Mud Hens home games May 2-5 are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items to the ballpark. Boxes will be readily available at all entrances and donations will remain in the local community.

Suggested non-perishable food donations include: 

-Peanut butter

-Pancake mixes

-Syrup

-Canned fruits and vegetables

-Soups

-Pastas

-Spaghetti sauce

-Powdered milk

-Cereals

-Instant potatoes

-Jell-O

-Pudding

For 65 years, Cherry Street Mission Ministries has served the homeless and poor. Today, in addition to meeting people's critical basic needs, the mission empowers them to break the bonds of homelessness and poverty and build new lives.
