Food Drive Collects More than 8,000 Food Items for Northern Kentucky Seniors

By Mark Shuller - Email

COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) – Fidelity Investments held its annual holiday food drive collecting more than 8,000 non-perishable food items to stock Senior Services of Northern Kentucky's pantry.  Fidelity has arranged a number of food drives to fill the SSNK pantry over the years. Two Men and a Truck donated a truck and movers to help transport the food items from Fidelity 's offices in Covington and deliver to Senior Services of Northern Kentucky for distribution to homebound seniors in need.  

More than 20 Fidelity employees volunteered their time to load the food into the truck along with SSNK staff.  Two Men and a Truck's mascot, Truckie, kept spirits high as everyone worked together in the cold. Donations of food such as canned vegetables, oatmeal, and pasta were delivered to Senior Services on December 14th after six weeks of collection.

"We receive food donations from organizations and individuals. We continue to be humbled by the generosity of our donors," said SSNK President and CEO Barbara Gunn.  "Fidelity Investments organized the largest food drive of 2010 and it could not have come at a better time. The demand for this service is at an all time high."

An agency of compassion since 1962, Senior Services of Northern Kentucky supports the independence and dignity of older adults in eight counties of Northern Kentucky.  Serving low-income adults aged 60 and older, SSNK delivers services in health and nutrition, transportation, and protection from abuse.  SSNK touches the lives of over 1,300 individuals, through all programs, each day.
