The St. Petersburg Free Clinic Food Bank feeds over 40,000 community members, and the need for donations is constant. Last year, Kobie Marketing raised over 46,000 pounds of food through office participation and #StompOutStarving, a local fundraiser, which helped to keep the Food Bank’s coffers full for over 6 months.
Kobie is calling on the community and local companies to join forces as they try to expand their efforts and include other local charities of the community’s choice to benefit from the event as well. There are several ways to get involved, including hosting food collection bins.
The St. Pete Chamber is currently housing two collection bins and invites members and locals to stop in to donate non-perishable food items.
